Was the Rock On Steroids For Pain And Gain?

The new movie Pain & Gain is being accepted quite well by the people who actually know what's going on behind the scenes of the fitness industry. One of the biggest drama around the movie is whether the star Dwayne Johnson a.k.a the Rock has been on steroids for that specific role. The truth is that the Rock has been on steroids for most of his life - since the very beginning of his career in football. Pretty much 90% of the even remotely serious football players in the USA are on steroids. There is not question about it. 

The size of Dwayne Johnson simply cannot be achieved naturally. The Rock has been training with weights since the very beginning and he has reached his natural potential pretty much 20 plus years ago. Therefor it's absolutely impossible for him to put on so much lean body mass.

As you can see in the picture the traps of the Rock have exploded - while it's not always the case usually when you go on a cycle the traps and shoulders "explode" because of the large number of androgen receptors in the area.

As always people would like to believe that "anything can be achieved" and one day after a lot of years working out you will look like the Rock. Nothing could be further from the truth and you've been lied to my friend. 

The only way to get as big as the Rock is to start using steroids on regular basis. While he may not abusing as much as a professional bodybuilders you would still need some pretty heavy doses and consistency to achieve his status in Pain & Gain. 

You wanted the truth - I give it to you.
