The Rock is undoubtedly a fitness icon. Beyond his success as a professional wrestler and actor, he is also an absolute savage in the gym. He regularly posts gym photos on his Instagram. So what pre-workout does Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson use to get fired up for his crazy workouts?
Pre Workout Used By The Rock: Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy
In many of the articles written about The Rock’s supplement stack online, Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy is the primary pre-workout supplement mentioned. The Rock takes Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy before workouts for a dose of caffeine and BCAAs.
As far as pre-workout supplements go, this is a pretty mild option. Amino Energy is relatively low in caffeine, but you can increase the dosage by simply taking more scoops.
Does The Rock Have His Own Pre Workout?
The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) is the “Chief Energy Officer” at ZOA Energy drinks. ZOA has a pre-workout line called ZOA+. Even though articles online claim The Rock takes either Amino Energy or A.B.B. Speed Stack, it’s likely that The Rock has switched to ZOA+ since he is involved with the brand.
What is ZOA+?
ZOA+ is a canned “pre-workout energy supplement”. It contains 200mg of caffeine, 3000mg of L-Citrulline, an “Antioxidant Blend”, and 1250mg of Betaine Anhydrous. These dosages are fairly low compared to many leading pre-workout supplements, but if this is accessible it could be a good go-to.
ZOA Plus is available in three flavors: Pineapple Passion Fruit, Blackberry Acai, Mandarin Orange Grapefruit. I’ve had the Pineapple Passion Fruit and Mandarin Orange Grapefruit flavors, and they both taste really good.
