Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has developed an impressive reputation for his cheat meals, his workout schedule and his productivity.
It shouldn’t, therefore, come as much of a surprise that taking on The Rock’s lifestyle has become a common challenge for YouTubers, with many trying (and often failing) to match his diet and exercise regime for a day.
One YouTuber by the name of Kalle Hallden took things a step further with his attempt to match Johnson, opting to try and live like the former WWE star for an entire week.
He documented his progress, creating a 10-minute video called ‘I Tried Living Like The Rock For A Week!’.
Hallden claims to be a bit of a productivity nerd who has been interested with Johnson’s lifestyle for some time, telling his viewers: “We all know that The Rock is an inspirational person - his work ethic, his workouts, his eating habits and, for me personally, I’m just really impressed by anyone who’s really productive. And The Rock definitely comes off as very productive."
To try and match Johnson’s schedule, Hallden woke up at 4am every morning for a cardio session, before eating his first meal of the day and hitting the gym once more at 6am for strength training.
After a shower and a post-workout meal, Hallden would try and replicate The Rock’s working day as closely as he could, stating: “His days obviously vary a tonne depending on what project he’s working on, so I kind of had to deduce what the rest of his day might look like based on the little information that I had."
From 9am onwards, this is the schedule that Hallden kept to:
9am - 11am: Work. Hallden attempted to use this time to work on his own projects and maximise his productivity.
11am - 11:30am: His third meal of the day.
11:30am - 1pm: Work.
1pm - 2pm: His fourth meal of the day.
2pm - 5pm: Work.
5pm - 5:30pm: His fifth meal of the day.
5:30pm - 7pm: Free time
7:30pm - 8:30pm: His sixth meal of the day.
In the midst of all that is also working out in the gym, we must add!
Hallden’s day ended at 8pm during his experiment to make sure he could sleep for at least seven hours before his alarm went off at 4am the following morning.
Without giving anything away, Hallden’s findings on the impact of the programme on his diet, his productivity and his ability to adjust to early starts made his experiment worthwhile - though we doubt that he stuck to it for any longer than seven days!
