Anyone who follows Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on Facebook or Twitter knows just how seriously he takes his movie roles, most of which revolve around his workouts.
From G.I. Joe to Fast and the Furious, Johnson jumps into these roles head first, but you probably should include everything from his pectoral muscles to his larger than life calves when you discuss how he gets prepped for an upcoming movie.
His latest transformation is for this summer's blockbuster, "Hercules," an aptly titled tale for Johnson who took to the gym and emerged from months of training to look the part and then some.
Naturally, every muscle head and health club guru stands in amazement at Johnson's physique and wonders why all their hard work can't get them that same body.
Most of what Johnson carries around in the way of muscle comes from his days as a professional wrestling superstar, a lifestyle packed with plenty of training while on the road. Johnson' dad also took to the wrestling ring and had a similar build as his movie star son, so genetics plays a key role even though it often is overlooked by others who envy what Johnson is packing in the way of muscle.
