Although a great effort is required to acquire the necessary muscularity to play Hercules, we can safely say Dwayne Johnson went to extreme measures.On a daily basis, he consumed seven meals, 10 pounds of food, and a total of 5,165 calories. Not only that, but, according to Daily Mail, The Rock worked out for roughly two and a half hours a day.
Dwayne Douglas Johnson (born May 2, 1972), also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE. Johnson was a college football player for the University of Miami, winning a national championship on the 1991 Miami Hurricanes football team.
He later played for the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League, and was cut two months into the 1995 season. This led him to become a professional wrestler like his grandfather, Peter Maivia, and his father, Rocky Johnson (from whom he also inherited his Canadian citizenship).
