When I first saw the previews for Pain and Gain, I thought for sure The Rock was on steroids but then I read his denial of PED use and watched a few interviews and now I’m inclined to believe The Rock wasn’t taking any performance enhancers.
Granted, The Rock looks huge in this upcoming guy movie but that doesn’t mean he’s taking steroids. The key here is that he’s lean to go along with a big frame. The leanness is what gives him that chiseled look with veins popping out and running down his biceps.
If you want a snapshot of the Rock’s workout for Pain and Gain, look no further than massive lean protein and heavy weight with low reps.
Now was Dwayne Johnson taking any other nutritional supplements like creatine or any other muscle builders? Yeah, I’m thinking so but as far as anabolic steroids, I’m going to go ahead and believe The Rock. I always like to give guys the benefit of the doubt and it’s clear the Rock does put a ton of effort into his nutrition and workout regimen.
Just as a side note, Mark Wahlberg has said he was clean as well.
So what do you think, were the stars of Pain and Gain clean or were they juicing? Keep in mind, we’re just asking about 2013. We won’t dig deeper into past supplement history.
