Dwayne Johnson recalls his training period for Black Adam as the most intense one to date

Dwayne Johnson’s physique has always been considered godly in the industry and is well-known for his strict diet and extreme workouts. But even the people’s champion seemed to take his training a step ahead for the transformation of Black Adam. 

Although the actor already embodied a superhero-like physique, he was adamant about exceeding the Comic book Teth Adam in terms of muscle. The actor explained that the workout for the role was getting pretty difficult and considers this one the toughest training period of his life. In an interview with Men’s Journal, he stated,

“The training we did for this movie was the most arduous I’ve ever done in my life. I’ve been one lucky son of a bitch over the years to prepare for some really big competitions and games. Getting the greenlight for Black Adam was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to raise the bar yet again. that work with Dave, we wanted to bring a whole new philosophy and methodology to the way I push myself in the gym.”

Even after the difficulties, Dwayne Johnson was yet again successful in exceeding his previous self and attaining the desired body for the role. But even after his determination, the movie itself didn’t live up to its expectations and bombed at the box office.

The Rock followed an exhausting diet for his role as Black Adam

Most of Dwayne Johnson’s roles don’t need him to exceed his limit, his everyday diet and training seem to get the job done. But for his dream project, Dwayne Johnson wanted to give it his all to attain the perfect structure for the anti-hero and surpassed his previous training and diet.

The Black Adam actor reportedly reduced his diet to a very basic level and even limited his intake of water and sodium. And even though it was getting difficult for Johnson to follow the diet after an extensive training session, it eventually paid off. The dry look of the actor due to lack of sodium and water helped his gains to pop out even more.
