WWF heavyweight turned highest-paid actor in the world Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson seems to get bigger and bigger with every movie. His body hardly even looks real, and he works really, really hard to maintain it. He’s striving for greatness, and a great physical physique is one of his top priorities.
For “The Fate of the Furious,” he bulked up to make his character Hobbs the biggest he’s ever appeared in the “Fast and Furious” movies or on the big screen generally. He often documents his inspirational workout routine and diet on his Instagram account, where he occasionally also posts photos and videos of his adorable dogs.
Here’s what The Rock’s workout routine and diet are like:
'He loves to train so you struggle to keep him out of the gym,' Johnson's trainer Dave Rienzi said. 'When I started working with him, he was spending too much time in the gym, which was a little counterproductive, so I had to try to limit him to a really intense 45-60 minutes.'

For his role in 'The Fate of the Furious,' he added 22 pounds to his already bulky body to be the 'meanest, strongest' Hobbs yet.
And they're incredibly intense, and definitely not for beginners. He likes to target major muscle groups and individual muscles from pretty much every angle -- chest, back, bicepts, and legs.

Johnson typically hits the gym at around 4 or 5 a.m. for some cardio. After eating breakfast, he does weight training for an hour and a half. 'I love putting in that hard work as early as possible to get my day started off on the right foot, mentally and physically,' he told Body Building.
