    I’m Trying Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “Jumanji” Workout — Here’s What It’s Like

    Five days a week of intense lifting!

    Yo! I’m Christopher Hudspeth and I really enjoy trying different workouts. In recent years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work out with celebrity trainers like Patrick Murphy (Zac Efron) and Corey Calliet (Michael B. Jordan).

    After I shared fitness results in the past, the most common response I got was something along the lines of, “Can you give more details on the workout/diet because having a trainer is EXPENSIVE.”

    Ahead of the new year, I made plans to commit four to eight weeks to a workout I’ve been wanting to try for a long time: The Rock’s Jumanji regimen.

    I also wanted to switch things up this time, so instead of trying the workout for a month or two and recapping the entire thing when it’s done, I’m going to document things weekly so I can share everything that’s happening — the workouts, the dieting, the good days, the struggles, the progress, and the setbacks.

    I posted the workouts on my Instagram, and my recommendation for keeping them easily accessible is to screenshot each day and add them to an album.

    There's no official diet listed with this workout, and The Rock consumes massive portions, so I’m planning to simply eat as much as I want but keep it MOSTLY clean. By "mostly" I mean 90/10. Typically I aim to have a protein, a green veggie, and sometimes a healthy carb. Here are the main foods I’ll be starting with:

    Anyway, the time for talking is done; now it's time to repeatedly lift a bunch of heavy cast iron until I feel like Dwayne Johnson. I'll see you next Monday — let's go!
