Dwayne Johnson will take to the stage on Oscars night to present an award at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

The Jumanji star will join host Jimmy Kimmel at the star-studded event alongside the likes of Halle Bery and Samual L. Jackson.

That means Dwayne will no doubt be striving to do his best.

The California-born actor previously told Bodybuilding magazine, “I love putting in that hard work as early as possible to start my day on the right foot mentally and physically.”

As he approaches his 51st birthday in May, it looks like the former WWF Champion will continue down that path.

In an exclusive interview, professional bodybuilder Victor Martinez told The US Sun what’s behind The Rock’s extensive routine.

He said, “The Rock will never stop bodybuilding and he’s definitely giving himself the longevity of training.

“However, like all of us, he’s slowing down and won’t lift heavy or heavy for hours.

“If Dwayne were to quit it would have to be a health issue, but even then he would find another way.

“Once he stops, it takes six months for him to put on body fat and not feel good.

“At that point, he won’t be The Rock anymore.

“He certainly changed his training program and diet in the process.

“He’s 50 and looking better and healthier and he has to watch his schedule.

“He still needs his body fat, but since he’s still bodybuilding, he doesn’t necessarily train heavier.

“He’s not trying to lift as heavy as possible.

“Dwayne seems to train more functionally.

“It means he doesn’t have to lift as heavy weights to maintain his leaner looks.

“Dwayne can’t afford to get injured so now he’s training with precision and calculation.

“He does a lot of functional exercises, weight training and postural exercises and maintains proper form.

“He probably makes glutamine, vitamin C, multivitamin and fish oils, which are the main ingredients for training.

“There are so many, but I’m sure The Rock has their own list.”

Dwayne was only a teenager when he started using weights.

At age 13, he joined the gym with his father, wrestler Rocky Johnson.

After playing football on a scholarship to the University of Miami, Dwayne joined the cast of WWE in 1996.

From there, Johnson spent eight years solidifying his name as “The Rock.”

Here and on stage, the muscular, six-foot-tall wrestler became a figure known for his charisma as well as his huge, hulking frame.

By 1999, Dwayne had attracted the attention of Hollywood producers.

He first appeared in Star Trek: Voyager and then in big-budget films like The Mummy Returns.

Over time, Dwayne Johnson has become one of the highest paid and most successful actors in the United States.

“If you notice Dwayne’s physique in wrestling, there’s no doubt you can see that he was tall,” explains Victor, a former Mr. Olympia runner-up.

“The Rock will always be tall because of its size and stature.

“But if you look at Dwayne now at 50, there’s a lot more detail to his form than there is in wrestling.

“It’s also good for his cinema appearances.

“Dwayne’s body fat dropped after wrestling as he ran around in tons and jumped off the top of things.

“He bodyslammed other wrestlers in a ring.

“Now he’s leaner for movies, he can still move well.

“After retiring from wrestling, he devoted himself more to the bodybuilding lifestyle and training for a few hours a day.

“These days, it looks like Dwayne trains six days a week with at least an hour and a half or two hours of training a day.

“He probably only sleeps six to seven hours a night.

“With his diet, he gives himself a cheat day – a bodybuilding term for a day when you can be ‘bad’ with food.

“It keeps the balance of nutrition for your mental health at a pretty leisurely pace.

“As a bodybuilder, you can’t be strict all the time, so Dwayne knows when to push hard and when to let go.

“If you look at his diet, he’s definitely balancing his macros, which is basically the balance between carbs, fats, proteins and sugars.

“He likes the peanut butter pancakes for his cheat days.

“But if you have that three days in a row, you have to compete for the waist with a Michelin tire.

“Since Dwayne is 50, he would need to stick to this strict regime, monitor his body fat and lower inflammation.

“The best way to do all of this is through diet and not just all supplementation.”

Over the years, Johnson has also entered the sports business world as a co-owner of the Extreme Football League, or XFL.

He owns Teremana Tequila and the energy drink Zoa, while co-owning the production company Seven Bucks Productions, which is behind some of his blockbuster films.

Privately, Dwayne is married to Lauren Hashian (38), with whom he has two daughters, Jasmine (7) and Tiana (4).

He also shares another daughter, Simone, 21, with ex-wife Dany Garcia, 54. She is also a bodybuilder.

“Not only does the training give Dwayne a great physique, but most importantly, the discipline of the mindset gives it the ability to cope with anything.

“He’s got a family and a job and he’s the person he is today,” adds Victor, a former Arnold Classic bodybuilding winner.

“If Dwayne ever stops exercising, he’s going to be stressed, uncomfortable and not feeling well.

“When you’re resting as a bodybuilder, it’s like you’ve parked a car for too long and then it doesn’t feel right when you start it.

“Longevity is the name of the game for Dwayne.

“As soon as he stops exercising, he will start to lose focus.

“The stress level will be too high for him considering how much he is doing.

“It’s different than acting when you decide to retire.

“It’s something you do to cope with life.

“Bodybuilding kills all the stress and a lot of people I know use it to fight addiction.

“And while it may help Dwayne deal with stress, for him bodybuilding is a lifelong commitment.”
