Dwayne Johnson's Hercules Workout


I saw The Rock’s “Hercules” workout; is it possible to perform it for 4 to 6 weeks and not die? I need a break from powerlifting.
Squat: 450
DL: 435
Bench: 275
Clean and Jerk: 235
Bodyweight: 200
Age: 21


ehhhh yeah, probably


The Rock uses plenty of juice so, go to your local friendly dealer before starting the program.


Looks tough. You probably don’t train with those sorts of volumes right now so I wouldn’t just flick the switch and start doing nearly 500 reps per day over night.

Why not do a Paul Carter or Dan John routine if you want somethimg different? Or train for power or try gymastics or whatever…


it’s only a month and a half. might as well try it and find out, right?
