The Rock's insane diet for Hercules...HOLY SHIT

He's getting even bigger for his role as Hercules (which is being directed by Brett Ratner so I'm obviously skipping this shit) but I found his diet plan to be flat out crazy. I would never try something like this.



Thats 7 full meals a day plus he probably has to work out a shit ton. Damn. Kudos to him for being dedicated to his craft.

Exactly what I came here to say. I mean I get that celebrities can't tell the truth about it because it's potentially a career ender for some of them. Although Stallone and Arnold were pretty open with their steroid use and it didn't seem to affect their careers any.

Also, just for some perspective:

That's so much food I'm sure his neighbors can smell what the Rock is cooking.

Actually you could be right. I wouldnt doubt him using steroids to get big. A number of actors have done so. I wondered the same about Tom Hardy for his role as Bane.

Yeah, that's insane. But I'm also working under the assumption that every ripped WWE wrestler from the heyday late 90s/early 2000s were heavy juicers. It WOULD make sense that he would continue that into his action film career.

Well, being that his full time JOB is having a massive build, he needs a LOT of calories to keep fuel in his body.
Protein is probably half of his diet, which looks exactly what his meals consist of. That first thing on every meal list is his protein and low fat section. The rice is his carbs (which is about 25% of his calories), then the fiber and other nutrients are the asparagus and broccoli.

I would wager he also takes many supplements and drinks protein shakes.
Then, he works out 3-4 hours a day (my guess). Probably a split routine. Half the workout (maybe 2 hours) in the morning, and six hours later the other half (1 - 2 hours more). Six days a week.
I would also think that he does 40-60 minutes of cardio 2-4 days a week.
He probably burns 5000-7000 calories a day, and with his body breaking down muscle he needs to rebuild it - thus, LOTS of protein and calories in general.
How much does he weigh, like 250? That means he's taking 250-300 grams of protein, and about 150-200 grams of carbohydrates to keep up his energy levels and rebuild muscle.

Man, if I had the time to do that, I'd be a freaking beast as well. But nowhere near his size lol

Id wager its quite legit. The particular diet gif... but I know a thing or two about said body-type. That is what you eat...

The torn abdominals rule too... I bet he's lovin that experience.

Building is all about intake and his diet is absurd but if he's burning 3,500 calories per day he would need that kind of fuel. It could be steroids. Anytime someone gets that big it could always be steroids. But the guy seems to put in the work seven days a week (I follow him on Twitter and Instagram and he constantly posts his work). Why not give him the benefit of the doubt? He was 250-260 when in the WWF (late 90s early 2000s when I watched) bc his midsection was larger. If you remove that girth he had from back in the day and replace that weight in other areas it's logical.

I understand the skeptics. But Rock was always big. It's not like seeing Carrot Top jump to the size of a body builder and not asking any questions. But it's not a stretch to think that Dwayne Johnson built himself into what he is today, physically just by hard work and dedication.

He obviously has good genetics, but let's be real the guy is juicing to get as big as he does when he is doing a movie that requires it. JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN HOLLYWOOD.

He is a fucking monster. I don't know if he is using steroids or not, but it seems he has the right genes, body type, build, discipline, diet, resources (like trainers, supplements, equipment etc.), and work ethic so there is no reason to automatically think it is steroids.

Yeah, it's easy to insist "steroids" just because someone is huge.
The thing is - and that picture of him "at 15" really helps drive the point home - bodybuilding takes YEARS before someone gets that big.

It's not like someone just "starts working out and eating right and six months later they're a monster".
He's been doing this for MANY years, and he knows how to do it. Also, his body type allows that kind of monster frame.

There are so few people in this world that are even capable of doing it naturally, but it's not implausible. It requires so much dedication - and a super strict diet - that the levels big bodybuilders attain to have that kind of body is what makes it impressive.
Steroids? Plausible, yes, but not "truth".

I'm guessing his usual diet is pretty much the same thing. It's basically a full time job to look like that.
