The Badass Reason The Rock Has a Toilet Next to His Squat Rack

There’s training hard – and then there’s training like the one and only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.


Yesterday, Johnson performed a chest workout in his mate Gunnar Peterson’s gym and uploaded a photo of his session to Instagram.


There’s nothing unusual about this photo, nothing at all – except the fact that there’s a toilet directly next to his squat rack.

We can’t think of any other possible uses for a toilet other than, you know, it’s usual ones. But apparently The Rock has some method to his madness.


“Gunnar keeps a toilet (non-functioning) in the rack, which is a whole other level of psychological bad assery,” Johnson wrote in the Instagram post. “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 then 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.”

As strange as it’d be facing off with a toilet whilst doing push ups, you can’t deny its motivational ability. Look that toilet dead in the eyes and know it’s mocking you, telling you to push yourself harder. Just don’t work out so hard you actually vomit.
