Absolutely, 100%, and without any doubt whatsoever, yes, the rock is juicing.
Since Dwayne Johnson’s WWE days, he’s bulked up an gained some quality mass, without adding any fat.
In fact, he looks more ripped (lower body fat) now than he did 20 years ago wrestling on TV.
Adding a significant amount of mass, whilst burning fat is unrealistic for any experienced weight trainer.
Also take note at how it’s not just Dwayne’s muscles that have grown, but also his head (skull), which appears larger and has a more square look to it.
The Rock’s muscles now have a more synthetic/juicy look compared to before. This synthetic look can often be a giveaway sign of someone using anabolic steroids.
Also notice how The Rock’s skin looks a lot darker now than it did 20 years ago. This isn’t because his skin has actually got darker, but a sign of an elevated body temperature.
In white men, a higher body temperature can make their skin look pink/red.
With black/Samoan descent it can make your skin look a few shades darker.
The reason why a higher body temperature is linked to steroid-use is because steroids spike your blood pressure due to them increasing testosterone levels. An increase in testosterone results with an increase in LDL levels (the bad kind of cholesterol). As a result blood pressure spikes and a higher body temperature often follows.
This is why men have a higher rates of heart attacks compared to women, because their cholesterol levels are less healthy due to superior testosterone levels.
Dwayne’s traps have always been one of his most dominant muscle groups.
It’s rare for a natty to have overdeveloped traps, but it’s extremely common for juicers to experience huge growth in the trapezius region, due to them having a high number of androgen receptors.
Thus when you hop on a steroid cycle, your traps will be the first muscle group to blow up, especially if you’re taking steroids with a high androgen rating.
Based on the evidence it seems like Dwayne Johnson IS taking steroids.
The Rock admitted to taking steroids for 2 weeks when he was 18, but it seems he’s lying when he stated he hasn’t touched them since, because he’s blown up and has several steroid side-effects since.
Dwayne’s may have testosterone in his wrestling days, helping him pack on size and look BIG. Steroids are rife in the wrestling industry, so if you did manage to get big NATURALLY, you’d almost certainly take them to dwarf your competition and make yourself the biggest alpha male in the ring.
…especially if you’ve already experimented with them as a teenager (which the Rock admitted to doing), as this shows you have a care-free mentality
Test would also explain his huge traps, stemming back during his WWE days.
Since finishing his wrestling career he’s focused more on bodybuilding and has gained a significant amount of size. However he hasn’t gained a huge amount of size as he was pretty jacked before. He’s also lowered his body fat and achieved a more ripped look simultaneously.
HGH is the compound Dwayne’s likely to have used to gain moderate amounts of muscle AND burn fat at the same time. His skull increasing in size is another sign of HGH use.
Some may point out that the Rock doesn’t have the famous ‘HGH gut’, where your belly starts protruding. However, many guys do take HGH without ever getting this ‘pregnant look’, because they don’t administer it with insulin.
Chul Soon (a well-known bodybuilder) also manages to escape this dreaded side effect whilst using HGH.
The combination of HGH and insulin is what causes this bloated belly effect, seen in many Mr Olympia bodybuilders such as Ronnie Coleman and Kai Greene. It’s rumored that quite a few men’s physique guys even take HGH…and those guys are the most aesthetic guys in the world with tiny waists.
If the Rock uses the steroids this statement is not able to take away from the fact that he is a great actor, wrestler, and model.
I think its obvious that his transformation is a combination of genetics and hard work. He dedicates his life towards the healthy lifestyle and clean diet, the steroids are certainly not the only reason for his amazing physique.
