Hollywood has seen several stars come and go, among which only a handful make an impact on the audience.

With his 6’5 frame of pure muscle, it becomes hard for anyone to compete when it comes to physicality, both athletic and aesthetic. But even with such a gifted body, the star cannot help but admire his training partner Mike Ryan, who is also a certified celebrity coach and probably one of Johnson’s biggest competitors in the gym.
