Most people remember Dwayne Johnson even before he was a beloved Hollywood action actor – back in his golden days, he was known as The People’s Champ in WWE. He was a big deal then, but now that he’s in the movie business, it seems he keeps getting more ripped every year. He has his ways of keeping his body strong and muscular even at age 50, but some doubt he is telling the truth.
Dwayne Johnson and the Diet
Dwayne has a strong presence on social media platforms, and those who follow him know he has some unique eating habits. He has never hidden his love of food from his fans, especially the amount of food. He recently shared that he has a new diet – eating 8,000 calories daily! However, some people, especially in the bodybuilding world, are skeptical about that intake amount being true.
Bodybuilder Has His Doubts
Greg Doucette, a known bodybuilder, is calling out The Rock for his 8,000 calorie daily intake – he doesn’t believe it could be even remotely true. He says that he eats 3,000-4,000 calories every day, and there is no way Dwayne can eat twice as much because he would be extremely overweight. He thinks The Rock is exaggerating the truth about the amount of food he eats!
Meal Prep for New Movie
Dwayne Johnson is starring in a new action movie – Black Adam, and he recently explained how hard it was and how much work it took to get into shape for the role. He says he was eating six meals a day and had a team of chefs and a strength and conditioning coach to help. Those who want to know more should check out his social media.
Dwayne Johnson can’t exactly be considered a bodybuilder – he is more of a great action and comedy-movie hero with countless followers. There are those who are skeptics of his eating habits and those who enjoy reading about them. Overall, he is a motivated person who keeps healthy and strong!
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Is Currently a Holdout for the Packers
The Green Bay Packers have started their full squad minicamp Tuesday without Aaron Rodgers. This is the first time in Rodgers’ long NFL career that he was chosen as a holdout.
Apparently, the star quarterback has now skipped the complete Packers offseason program, as he had failed to show up for each of the three phases of the voluntary workout sessions. Unless he suddenly decides to show up in the middle of this latest camp, the mandatory reporting date for NFL MVP will become the July 27 kickoff for training camp.
Rodgers Continued Absence Is Part of an Escalating Standoff With the Packers
Apparently, Rodgers’ absence is a significant escalation in his standoff with the Packers and signals a deepening resolve that should be addressed by the team’s front office as it prepares for the next season. This comes after he bypassed the workout phases that would have given him a $500,000 offseason workout bonus. Now the Packers can fine Rodgers around $93,000 for missing the mandatory camp. This shows that if Rodgers is willing to lose nearly half a million to stay away from working with his teammates, he might be willing to take this attitude into the 2021 preseason or beyond.
The Packers Will Have to Fine Rogers $50,000 Per Day If He Does Not Show Up After July
While the Packers cannot gift Rodgers the $500,000 workout bonus due to his lack of participation, they can extend the quarterback an excused absence for camp to avoid fining him the $93,000. Still, when training camp begins in July, they will have to fine him $50,000 per day because the league mandates this for players who are in a holdout.
Whether that becomes the case for Rodgers remains to be seen, but now the Packers must move forward with other kinds of pressure. First, they have to answer questions about how they will heal their relationship with the star quarterback. Then, they have to deal with the fact that they are not using the best quarterback in the NFL. Still, this will put a spotlight on second-year quarterback Jordan Love.
