Mark Webster was utterly sick and tired of his monotonous life routine- eat, work, sleep, repeat. He wanted to shake things up a bit. He planned to get in shape and work on his fitness. But Webster had no normal plans. He eyed to follow the diet and fitness plans of none other than Dwayne The Rock Johnson.
The Ambitious Plan
The Rock, as expected, has no ordinary diet. He has an intake of more than 5,000 calories a day. There are no less than seven meals including 2.3 pounds of fish, eggs, chicken, steaks, vegetables and grains.
But Webster had ambitious plans. After reading the mighty diet and workout plans of the Rock, Webster decided to try them out at least for a month.
Webster says that he spent more than $12,000 on his diet. The main cost is of time. He says that he was spending more than five hours on preparing or planning about food or workouts.
It takes around twenty minutes just to eat one “The Rock” meal. This is because the meals are extremely heavy and large in quantity for a normal man like Webster.
But Webster didn’t keep eating like the Rock. To burn off the calories and lose weight, he bent upon to follow the ambitious plan to carry out the exercise routine of the famous wrestler.
This exercise plan includes around an hour of cardio training and around two hours of extreme weight training. This spans over 6 days a week. Only one day is for rest.
So what was the outcome of all this? Well, as far as the weight is concerned, Webster didn’t feel much difference, and he wasn’t expecting that as well, given the fact that he was taking in loads of calories in his body.
But Webster’s strength and muscle mass surged remarkably. He felt powerful, active and fresh.
Webster explains what he got by following the strenuous plan.
I’m 37, I got little aches and pains all the time, but I have none of those anymore. I feel better than I did before I was doing this.My resting heart rate has dropped by like four beats per minute over the past month. I feel fantastic.
Attention and Respect from the Rock
Perhaps the biggest reward Webster got is the massive respect and attention of the Rock. On Twitter, when Webster shared is the story with the star, the Rock replied with a surprise initially.
Here’s how the conversation went on.
This plan is not for everyone. The Rock is a star, a professional wrestler. He does all this for a living. But the real credit which Webster deserves is his resolute decision to come out of his comfort zone and try out a plan that is definitely not for the faint-hearted. This is exactly what earned him the respect of the Rock.
