He is mostly known as a former champion wrestler and has starred in numerous hits like Hercules, Fast & Furious with his latest role being Disney’s Moana. He is also highly involved in charity.

In 2006, he founded the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, meant for helping the children with at-risk diseases and the terminally ill.

One of the most impressive parts of his body is his massive back. In this article, we provide one of the back workouts Johnson uses to build thickness and mass.
