The Messed-Up Reason Why There’s A Toilet Next To The Rock’s Squat Rack


Gyms. You either love them or hate them. Some people can’t stand them, some have never even stepped foot inside one. Other people? They can’t get enough exercise and virtually live down the gym. Dwayne Johnson is one of those latter sorts. As you can probably tell from his physique!

Followers of The Rock‘s Instagram feed noticed something weird this week… Right next to his squat rack there’s a TOILET! That’s right. Luckily – for all his puzzled followers – he explained just why. Thankfully it isn’t quite as disgusting a reason as it could have been. But it’s still pretty nasty.

Here’s what Johnson said:

“Gunnar keeps a toilet in the rack, which is a whole other level of psychological bad as*ery. My old man used to kick my ass so hard in the gym when I was a kid he’d say, ‘if you’re gonna throw up go outside… And if you’re gonna cry than go home to your mother.’ If only we had this brilliant toilet in the gym idea when I was a kid, I would’ve never had to go outside.”

He does love the gym…

And check it – he STILL does the eyebrow thing!

Mornin' raise of the 'brow from my new (yet still dirty) West Coast Iron Paradise. We're doin' that 4am anchor thing again to close out the week strong. Shooting one big final additional scene for Hobbs and FAST & FURIOUS today. Bad ass Hobbs scene, so it'll be fun. I'll wrap that out this afternoon then switch gears, energy, tempo and definitely wardrobe;), to shoot BALLERS tonight. It's kinda crazy but in order for me to operate at a highly efficient/effective level, I need that 4am wake up to train like an beast. It's one of my anchors. Even at this "what the f*ck are you thinking at this stupid hour of 4am". Buuuuut remember it's the fun crazy ones that dent the universe. Find your anchor. Get crazy. Dent it. #4am #WestCoastIronParadise #DentingInProgress

Can you smell that? The Rock is either cooking something or he’s just thrown up… What do you think? Cool idea? Or just gross?!
