Got damn...

Quote:
Courtesy of USA Today, here is an approximation of Johnson's seven-meals-a-day diet plan, which combined with an intensive workout regime, he followed for sixteen weeks to prepare for the role, as well as to maintain his sizable look throughout the filming process.

Meal one: ten-ounce beef fillet, two cups of oatmeal, two-egg omelet.

Meal two: eight ounces of cod, twelve ounces of sweet potatoes, one cup of steamed vegetables (onions, peppers, mushrooms).

Meal three: eight ounces of chicken, two cups of white rice, one cup of vegetables.

Meal four: eight ounces of cod, two cups of rice, one cup of vegetables.

Meal five: eight ounces of steak, twelve ounces of baked potato fries, one salad.

Meal six: ten ounces of cod, two more cups of rice, one salad.

Meal seven: thirty grams of casein protein powder, ten-egg-white omelet, one cup of vegetables, one tablespoon of Omega-3 fish oil.

Regarding the diet, Johnson noted, "There's a right way and a wrong way to bulk up for a film. The wrong way is to eat as much garbage as you can for weeks on end, which actors have the tendency of doing. It's unhealthy and puts an incredible amount of stress on your body, joints, tendons and digestive system. The right way is to bulk up with good complex carbs and protein/fat sources."

The Rock's shoulders look insane, it almost looks like if he'd walk around he'd wobble and shuffle around because of his bulked he is. While I give him credit for getting fit, I personally wouldn't want to look like that.

The Rock is awesome, but Iunno, I just can't bring myself to believe that he had even a tiny amount of "help." Either way, he's come a LOOOONG way even from his wrestling days. He looks a hundred times better than when he was in his peak in the 'E.

The Rock looks huge! Bit over the top in my opinion but he has bulked up for a role I suppose.

I also don't think he has done steroids. This man has been working out for decades now so it's not like he had to start from scratch to get there.

i have a low bodyfat but dont have well defined abs since i dont do any abs exercises ( although there are some people who do even without doing abs exercises )... i already spent a lot of time in the gym so i cant spent more to do abs exercises... but i do have all the equipment i need at home, so if anyone can tell me a good legit abs program ( not one of those 5 miutes youtube stuff ) it would be greatly appreciated

i also have a dip bar at home so i could do any of the leg raise hanging stuff

Even if he's not natty..

He's eating more than 3 pounds of meat AND eggs and casein with carbs.

You could sit on your fukking ass all day, and the sheer amount of quality food can and will increase your lean muscle mass.

Talk about Protein fukking synthesis.

Excess of protein will convert to glucose through glycogenesis anyway so it's really pointless to consume too much protein when you can get all that glucose and calories from cheap carbs.

I read once the human body can only properly digest a 100 grams of protein a day, the rest gets converted or just goes to waste. Not sure if true or not.

Average male who is 6'0'' and weighs around 160-180-lbs and is pretty active(lifting,bball,crossfit,...) needs around 200g of protein per day. If the same guy would be consuming 300-350g of protein per day, those 150g of excess protein won't go to waste, it will just transform into glucose which is main source of energy. But the carbs are also converted into glucose so it's really pointless to seek energy(glucose) in protein sources when it can be found in much cheaper carbs. Of course for the Rock that's not really an issue.

Anyone know any good training regimens for getting your mile time under 5:00?

There's no way The Rock got as big as he did without roids...if he didn't take them for this movie he definitely did during his wrestling career.

Honestly looking back, Rock wasn't even that big during his full time career. The size he was back then looks downright average compared to the monster he is now



Honestly I think a big part of it is just that he had to be smaller when he competed full time because you have to be a lot more mobile in the ring. You have to carry all that weight during probably 100+ matches per year so its ideal to me smaller and more mobile. Now that he only has to do one match per year (2-3 at most) he can be a lot bigger. Even if you saw his WM match and match against Punk, you can definitely tell all that extra "movie" weight is harder to carry in the ring because he slowed down after like 10 minutes in the ring.

So i mean I'm sure if his goal was to be as big as possible he easily could have done it back then, but time (you can't work out as much when youre on the road 48 out of 52 weeks of the year) and the need to stay mobile probably kept him smaller. Like I said, his ONLY goal is to be as big as possible for this movie. With all those resources he could easily do it without roids.
