Additionally, sharing the video, Johnson mentioned Pit Shark squats are actually helping him recover from his injuries, considering he had so many from wrestling and football.

Previously in an interview with Men’s Journal, The Rock discussed the injuries he sustained during his football and wrestling careers. DJ stated, “I’ve sustained a number of injuries over the years that have been difficult to overcome, but I’m lucky that I’ve never been injured in the gym. I was brought up to train hard and train smart. But that didn’t protect me when I was out on the field competing or in the wrestling ring.”

Further, he added, “I’ve had five knee surgeries, a torn Achilles. I had to be sewn back together. The top of my quad was torn from my pelvis. I had a whole bunch of shit happen.”

Johnson, like many other wrestlers and football players, has a long list of injuries. He is, however, currently recovering from his training.

Johnson was asked why he has such strange abs during the chat. When ‘The Great One’ and Blunt heard this, they were taken aback. He went on to explain why his abs aren’t perfect.

He stated, “The problem was, which a lot of people don’t know, in a wrestling match, I tore the top of my quad off my pelvis. It went bang in a wrestling match. And then what that did, that caused a chain reaction and it tore my abdomen wall. So then I had to do a triple hernia emergency surgery… so, they’re not, like, perfect abs.”
