We have now officially entered 2022 and for Dwayne Johnson, that means it’s time to hit the gym for the first time in the new year.

Dwayne Johnson calls his gym of choice the “Iron Paradise” fittingly and the star actor spends a great deal of time working on his body. His training program is said to be very intense and he trains with all of his heart, body, and soul each time he steps into the gym. He doesn’t do it often, but Johnson will occasionally use social media to give fans a glimpse of his training methods. His most recent social media post shows the star in his element as he squeezes out set after set.

“We got a late one in, but a great one in last night in the Iron Paradise,” Dwayne Johnson says in the Instagram post. “Torture Rack is always humbling and kicked the dog s*** out of me, but that how we like it – bring the pain. It is our last Thursday and Friday of 2021. Make these days count and get your momentum going into this weekend. Bring on 2022!”

I don’t know what the “torture rack” is and frankly — I don’t want to know but it sounds very intense. If it’s kicking Dwayne Johnson’s butt then it must be plenty intense. Johnson has on occasion spoken of his training regimen and it is as insane as you think it is. I think I will stick to the stationary bike and leave the torture rack for the big guy.

Dwayne Johnson Prides Himself in Elite Fitness

Known to many by his wrestling persona “The Rock,” Dwayne Johnson has built an impressive career for himself. Much of his success can directly be attributed to his awesome physique and high level of fitness. With this in mind — it is no surprise to anyone that Dwayne Johnson rang in the new year with a dumbbell in each hand. The Hollywood megastar takes his fitness and exercise routine very seriously and the final product is astonishing. Johnson looks like he was chiseled from granite for the specific purpose of explaining what “swole” means to non-gym goers. With muscles stacked upon muscles, Dwayne Johnson practically lives inside the gym. He is certainly a physical specimen and it is one of the reasons that he is one of the most beloved entertainers of all time.

Dwayne Johnson has long looked after his fitness and nutrition and it has served him well. He played collegiate football at the University of Miami, where he was a defensive lineman for the Hurricanes.

Dwayne Johnson, as The Rock, is one of the most popular professional wrestlers of all time. Now, Johnson is one of Hollywood’s top leading men.
