Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
One does not earn the moniker of “The Rock” by sitting idly by. Dwayne Johnson, the professional athlete turned actor embodies the fitness lifestyle to a T. Throughout the quarantine he has been sharing his inspirational workout videos and of the cheat days that follow. From working out 6 times a week to occasionally taking a break on Sunday, Dwyane is an inspiration to us all.
He went from playing the role of a professional slacker in the hit sitcom, Parks and Recreation, to playing the role of one of the most beloved superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And you best believe that he worked hard for his body transformation. Even today, the actor follows a gruelling workout regime, but he also points out that a huge chunk of his weight loss was due to cutting out junk food and alcohol. In an interview with Men’s Health UK, he said, “I probably lost about 35lb in six weeks. I ran five or six miles a day. I ate leafy green salads and protein shakes. I cut out all alcohol. Trim, trim, trim.”
Even though the ‘Wolverine’ actor is now pushing 50, he has never looked more at the peak of his fitness! When he first got the role of Wolverine in 2009, the actor focused primarily on weightlifting. And despite performing in several acclaimed musicals like Oklahoma and The Greatest Showman, the ‘Wolverine’ inside him is ever present. He said in an interview that, “I do an hour and a half a day in the gym and eat a thousand calories more a day than I would normally. And I train really hard. I crank up the Godsmack and Metallica. I yell and scream, which helps me get into the character and have a bitch of a workout.”
No matter what role Jason Momoa takes up, his performance and looks are unforgettable. He is perhaps the only man alive who could successfully pull off the original yellow and green Aquaman costume from the comics, such is his image. Rather than hitting the gym several times a week, Jason believes in the power of the outdoors. From boxing, mountain climbing, trekking, and surfing, he does it all and then some. He told Men’s Health UK, “It’s very hard sometimes to just work out. It’s monotonous and you can get stuck in a rut.”
