Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is king when it comes to serving up 'fitspo and all-around good, positive vibes on social media. The actor and former professional wrestler has been known to share plenty of motivational captions, relatable videos, and tons of workout content on Instagram—and rightfully so, as fans cannot get enough of it.
One of The Rock's most recent workout clips for ZOA Energy gives fans an inside look into Johnson's "walk of hell," which brings strength training to a whole new level and looks absurdly impressive.

The Rock carries heavy chains around his neck during his "walk of hell"
Eminem's "'Till I Collapse" plays in the background while The Rock takes a sip of what appropriately looks like a ZOA Energy drink. He then does several walking lunges across the gym like a total boss, all while carrying 120 pounds of chains—yes, 120 pounds—around his neck. After he completes six lunges, The Rock removes the chains and looks like an all-around champ.
The Rock describes the walk as "intense"
The Rock reveals in his Instagram caption that his "walk of hell" was certainly "intense"—and boy do we believe it!—but it was all in good spirits and efforts to shoot a commercial for Johnson's brand, ZOA Energy drinks. Until the commercial debuts in February, we have this gem of a video to watch over and over again as we gaze in awe at The Rock's absolutely shredded arms and legs. (We're here for the neon green sneakers, too!)
The benefits of strength training
Of course, The Rock's "walk of hell" got its name for good reason—it looks extremely difficult. It's important to note, too, that the star knows how to properly work with heavy chains during his workouts. But, that doesn't mean you can't reap the benefits of lunges or squats with a dumbbell weight that feels comfortable to you (and one your body can safely handle). You can also start strength training on your own terms, whether that be with free weights or resistance bands.
According to Harvard Health Publishing, strength training exercises can yield stronger muscles. Strong muscles help you build stronger bones, which lessens your chance of getting a bone fracture.
If The Rock has you feeling inspired to build more muscle mass, get toned, and establish the right strength training exercises for you, we can relate.
