    I don't know the legality of pumping random people full of PED's, but I think it would still be interesting to see what could be done in 365 days with "regular" people starting somewhat from square one.

    I'm sure it would make TV sense to choose people with decent genetic makeup, in reasonably good health, maybe age 18-35, and that look good on camera, so that rules me out. But I'd love to take a year off from work and just train, and I've never had a coach, so I'd jump at the chance.

    -- from what I've seen, Johnson does BB'er type stuff (moderate weights for 10-20 reps), nothing too frightening weight-wise.

    $$$ for drugs and food
    And time to do w.e the fck he wants.

    W.e Im all up for it. He setting the bar much higher for males that you can still peak, look good and enjoy life after 40's. So lets thank him.

    Rather than being 40+, miserable and out of shape.

    Even if drugs werent involved. Look at guys like mayweather and hopkins. Guys are still keeping in shape and looking good for their age.

    .

    Honestly with continued advances in medical and exercise science I don't see why anyone can't stay in good shape into their 40s and even 50s. I mean how old is Louis simmons and he still trains does he?.I remember in high school my biology teacher talked about a study where senior citizens used weight training to reverse the affects of osteoporous. I always preferred stone colds build to the rocks though . his looked more natural.

    This.

    45 is nothing nowadays, as long as you are relatively healthy.

    He's rich, can afford the best diet, the best supplements, stacks, etc etc.

    Ya I've seen Johnson's workouts, BBish, not that heavy. I mean the dude is big and strong enough, looking jacked is a smarter route to go.

    He drinks GOMAD, hits the big three really fucking hard. Then cools down with a crossfit workout personally tailored for him by Greg Glassman.

    As eloquent as your reply is, including your statement that "he can just focus on getting jacked as fuck" the ofcus he has is doubtfully better than it was in the past. What he is able to do now that, as you put it, "He's not beating the utter shit out of his body with wrestling anymore", is he's able to dedicate the next several days after a workout to recovery! Poor wrestling was making inroads into the limited recovery capabilities any human being has, and humans vary greatly in their recovery ability. Recovery ability is a genetic trait. So is height. Just as you have midgets on the far left of the continuum and giants on the other extreme, so too do people vary in their genetically programmed recovery abilities from high intensity work. You have midgets of recovery ability and giants of recovery ability, one of whom is Schwarzenegger. he was certainly as or more jacked than this at 45 years old!

    Considering the many wrestlers who had even better physiques than The Rock when they were all still wrestling, I would estimate that The Rock is not a giant of recovery ability and now that he's not taxing his already limited recovery ability with wrestling, he is able to dedicate all of his recovery ability to building muscle.
