Crucial Update

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Legs Are Your New Year’s Fitspo


Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Dreading going to the gym in January just to be judged by gym rats as an annoying "resolutioner?" Let this insane photo of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's thighs on leg day inspire you to simply shrug and take your rightful place on the Stairmaster.

In an Instagram post last night, The Rock shared this photo of his signature shaved head, huge arms, and absolutely enormous thighs — sorry, beefs"Tonight we trained 'the beefs' aka legs," he wrote, before adding the following dad joke: "I passed out after we took this pic from holding my breath and trying to look cool."

Do Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's thighs care what anyone else thinks about their treadmill speed? Do they worry whether the lady one machine over is using heavier weights on the leg press? Do they feel insecure when the other dude on the elliptical has burned more calories? No, no they do not. Instead, they glimmer with the glorious hope of all that is to come in 2016.
