CELEB FITNESS IN FOCUS Here’s Dwayne Johnson

Here’s Social Diary spilling the secrets on ways in which Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock remains the biggest
and athletically fittest actor in Hollywood right now, inspiring thousands every day!

With the onset of a pandemic, remaining fit is becoming a tad harder than usual. Here’s to getting inspiration from your favorite stars on how to keep the rhythm going and maintaining a wholesome lifestyle.

HERCULEAN EFFORT

When you’re an athlete-turned-actor who already has a physique idolized by millions around the world, you might think it would be easy to rest on your laurels. Not so with Dwayne Johnson. That’s why he was Hollywood’s highest-grossing movie star with his four films pulling in $1.3 billion at the box office.
He has elevated his training significantly, using a six-days-on, one-day-off schedule for six months to help him bulk up. At the beginning of each morning, Johnson would complete a 50-minute cardio session before working on a specific body part depending on what day it was, with his legs being the only muscle group that received more than one workout per week.
“I start working out pretty early, around 4 a.m. When I’m filming, I do cardio and I lift before going to set. I train about six days a week, and even when I’m not filming, I get up between 3 and 5 a.m. just to train. I love training when the sun is coming up because it allows me to put on my headphones and step off the crazy treadmill that is everyone’s life. I have my headphones on and I’m listening to my music, and I’m 100 percent focused. There’s no wasted time or effort when it comes to me and the weights.

IN THE GYM- ALL YEAR ROUND

“I work out for about 90 minutes, or maybe an hour and 45 minutes. When I hit the gym, I’m coming! I train hard, I come to kick ass—clanging and banging. And while other actors may slack off with their training schedules once they’ve got a movie in the can, Johnson is among the minority of people who are in the gym all year round.
“Working out anchors my day,” he says. “For me, training is my meditation, my yoga, hiking, biking, therapy all rolled into one. I love it. Generally, I’m always shooting or preparing to shoot for something, so that’s why I like keeping my conditioning in a certain zone. But even if I wasn’t it would launch my day. It makes me feel good.”

Think steak, fish, whole grains, eggs, green veggies, protein, protein, and more protein, and you’re getting a pretty good idea of what The Rock is cookin’. It’s all planned out in advance and devoured with relish.

Five-Meal Diet Plan
When he’s not building mass for a role, The Rock eats the following (as an example):
Meal #1
· 10 oz steak
· 2 cups oatmeal
· 3 egg whites
· 1 whole egg
· 1 glass watermelon juice
Meal #2
· 2 servings chicken
· 2 bell peppers
· 3 cups mushrooms
· 3 cups broccoli
· 1 protein shake
Meal #3

· 3 cups broccoli
Meal #4

THE ROCK DIET PLAN

The Rock takes a “go big or go home” attitude toward just about everything he does, including his diet. What we’re trying to say here is that he eats like a grizzly bear, albeit a (mostly) healthy one.
Sometimes The Rock’s diet can go to crazy extremes. For example, when prepping for the role of Hercules, it was reported that he ate up to seven protein-rich meals a day. That amounted to a whopping total of 4,131 calories, which is basically twice the recommended average for men. When not in training, he normally eats about five meals a day, and we’re talking meals. As you can probably guess, Johnson loves himself a juicy steak along with other tasty proteins. And if you’ve ever visited The Rock’s insanely popular Instagram feed, then you know his cheat meals are downright epic. Of course, everything this dude does is epic, so why would his cheat meals be any exception?
