A man who goes by the name, nycballer on social networking site, Reddit, decided to follow the diet a d fitness plan of actor and WWE wrestler, Dwayne Johnson a.k.a The Rock, for 31 days.
Now, he has hit the halfway mark of his diet and there is an important information for him.
Askmen.com says the amount of food the determined man must take is equal to that of five triple Whoppers!
He seems to have run into trouble after The Rock himself tweeted:
“Uh oh. This kinda only works if you train 2xs a day, work 14hrs on set and are half Samoan/half Black. And cuss,”
Below is what the man wrote about what he has learnt.
Things I’ve Learned The hardest part actually is the food prep: having to make 7 meals a day, every day, for month is hard to do with a full-time job and a family to take care of. if anyone is interested, I can share more details about this.
Though I’m 6’3”/207lbs and The Rock is 6’5”/260lbs, I haven’t gained any weight eating 5,000 calories a day. I would have thought at this surplus it would have led to putting on some weight. But I’m noticeably building muscle while getting leaner.
Podcasts and Audiobooks! This is how I spend 2+ hours in the gym 6 days a week. Music just doesn’t hold my focus for that amount of time. I also feel like I’m getting smarter and bettering myself in the process.
I feel great. I’m 37, around the time when mysterious aches and pains pop up. Eating like this is preventing any muscle soreness or DOMS. And I’m lifting heavier than I had in awhile. Makes me realize I definitely haven’t been eating enough, and that sometimes your body needs high glycemic carbs (something I’ve avoided for years).
Eating like The Rock isn’t cheap. It’s costing me about $42/day, putting this whole experiment at a monthly budget of almost $1300. It’s mostly the cod that gets you, that alone is $18/day.
This experience has been eye-opening for me, especially how the nutrition is affecting my workout. Kind of blew apart some cutting/bulking views I had. Thought /Fitness would benefit from what I’m learning.
ention the insane amount of working out he has to complete as well. Cable crossover supersets? Romanian deadlifts!? We don’t even know what those words mean, but they sound terrifying.
