WWE 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 hard to maintain it. He's striving for greatness, and a great 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.

Johnson often documents his workout routine and diet on his Instagram account, where he also occasionally posts photos and videos of his adorable dogs.

Here's what The Rock's workout routine and diet are like:


He loves to work out — maybe too much.


"He loves to train, so you struggle to keep him out of the gym," said Dave Rienzi, Johnson's trainer. "When I started working with [Johnson], 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."

His weight often fluctuates, and his goal weight depends on the movie.



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.

"I'm stepping on set 260lbs of the meanest, strongest and most highly funny & entertaining s--- talkin' version of Hobbs the franchise has ever seen," Johnson said on Instagram.


To gain those 22 pounds, he had to eat about 6,000 calories a day.


Sometimes he'll treat himself to a "cheat meal" like the one pictured here: "8 slices of sourdough French toast topped with loads of apple pie," according to Johnson.

To bulk up, he eats seven times a day.


 The weight of the food can be up to 10 pounds a day. His diet consists of mostly meat, vegetables, and eggs, and it has evolved over the years.
