The Rock Just Shared a Look at How He Builds Massive Biceps on Arm Day

When it comes to getting after it in the gym, there aren’t many who push themselves as hard as Dwayne Johnson: he recently packed on more muscle than ever before while starring in the DC movieBlack Adam, and he is still chasing gains now.

The actor known to the world as The Rock just shared a look at his arm day workout on Instagram, posting a clip of himself performing a preacher curl on an EZ bar. This is a great move for building bigger, stronger biceps as it removes all momentum from the equation and forces your biceps to work in isolation, with very limited mechanical assistance from the shoulders.

Johnson keeps himself motivated in this tough exercise by listening to a famously profane motivational speech from veteran powerlifter C.T. Fletcher, who he shouts out in the caption as “always droppin’ the gospel.”

“Success, in any fucking thing, success requires obsession,” Fletcher says in the audio. “I can’t say it enough. You must be obsessed. But to obtain success, you must fucking be obsessed with that, there’s no way around it. The fucking best at anything must be obsessed.”

Obsession with success is certainly on-brand for Johnson, who has spoken repeatedly about his constant desire to be the “hardest worker in the room,” and earlier this year he explained how his philosophy for life and his approach to training are one and the same.

“In the gym, as in life, raising the bar isn’t always about putting on a big show,” he said. “It’s the small quiet promises you make to yourself. The ones you could break, and no-one would know, but you don’t. You show up every day and meet this gym on its terms; with humility, gratitude, and respect. Through struggle, through pain, through sweat. Through the little voice deep in your gut that says you could quit any second, but you don’t. You raise, and raise, and raise again.”
