Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the few celebrities who is not only well-liked, but can sell anybody on anything. Whether he was your idol as an eyebrow-raising wrestler back in the day or your new favorite A-list action star, you cannot deny that The Rock is certainly a household name–and now, he’s making his way to your gym. Project Rock, The Rock’s collaboration with Under Armour, is a gym and streetwear-friendly shoe, apparel, and tech collection that elevates the look and feel of your workout.

 His shoe collection within project rock called “Chase Greatness” has been massively successful in the past and is showing no signs of slowing up anytime soon–with its recent addition selling out in under 24 hours. The new red, white, and blue colorway has a knit, sock-like ankle, various texture overlays, white outsoles that move into an reddish orange gradient, and a blue accented insole. The men’s lifestyle shoe goes for just under $200 and are just one style of his Project Rock 1 training shoes; and if you’re looking for extra incentive to buy, they were created in honor of the men and women in our military.

 On the tech side of things, Project Rock also offers sweat-proof workout headphones that will help you get through even the grimiest of workouts. The UA Sports Wireless Train Headphones are cordless, over-ear headphones with spongy ear cuffs placed snuggly over the speakers. The fact that they are wireless is a major plus, but the real benefit is in the sturdy, absorbent sponge material that is great for those of you who struggle with earbuds slipping out during those really sweaty workouts. If you’re looking for high-end headphones, these bad boys will cost you $249.

 Luckily, the apparel–which is branded with The Rock’s signature bull logo–is comprised of comfortable, reasonably priced pieces. However expensive or cost-effective, Under Armour and Dwayne Johnson offer up a collaboration worth investing in with Project Rock.

Try These 7 Dwayne Johnson-Approved Tips to Building Life-Changing Habits

Published

Dwayne Johnson is rated one of the hardest-working actors in Hollywood, which is why he’s among the highest-paid actors. Dude gets three to five hours of sleep each night. Three.

He’s also one of the most inspiring people in the world. He has over 300million followers on Instagram, where he doesn’t shy away from sharing an inspo post now and again – like, say, the perks of a late-night gym sesh, why you need to work hard in life, or the benefits of a 7,000-calorie cheat meal.

No matter what, The Rock is a 21st Century icon. That’s why we decided to share the seven most important lessons he’s taught us over time.

Seven, because that’s the amount of money he had when he was kicked out of the Canadian Football League and had to start over. Seven, because that’s the mane of his firm –SevenBuck Productions.

Work Like Your Life Depends on It Because It Does

Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work equals success – Dwayne Johnson

As a child, Dwayne witnessed his dad wake up at 5 am every day. He’d have his cup of coffee and then hit the gym. And when other kids played at the playground, Dwayne accompanied his dad to the gym – hardcore gyms. His first interaction with weight rooms was as a pre-teen.

However, this was a crucial bonding time for them, and it was then that he learned there’s no substitute for hard work.
His dad and other wrestlers would train for hours every morning, like all the top bodybuilding giants – Frank Zane, Albert Beckles, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was all they knew, and it was all Dwayne knew. And it worked.

Create A Solid Morning Routine

Dwayne starts his day at 3.30 am. He begins with a light cardio workout –a quick run or some weights (when he knows he’ll have a busy day). After working out, he has his morning meal, ‘The Power Breakfast,’ and starts his day.

You, too, can create your morning routine. Wake up early, go for a run, do some light intensity cardio, or try meditation – whatever gets you supercharged. Kickstarting your day with a defined habit helps you have a positive and proactive attitude, allowing you to accomplish your day’s tasks on time.

It also helps alleviate stress, minimize mental fatigue, and boosts your overall productivity, clearing the path for a successful future.

Appreciate More

It’s easy to get caught up in the bliss of success and forget how fortunate you are. Practicing gratitude is an ideal way of creating a positive environment, reducing stress and anxiety, and enhancing your overall health.

How can you cultivate this habit? It’s simple. Like Johnson, you can pen down a gratitude letter to your supporters or do some volunteer work. Dwayne has a long list of the charities he supports and volunteers his time for, including, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, I Have a Dream Foundation, Parkinson Society Maritime Region, Red Cross, Starlight Children’s Foundation, and Until There’s A Cure.

It can also be as simple as reminding yourself of one thing you’re grateful for every day before going to sleep. The more you appreciate the small wins, the happier you’ll be.

Exercise – It’s Good For Your Overall Existence

Besides boosting physical health, working out enhances creativity and improves cognitive skills. It’s also the best way to build endurance and get pumped up for work.

If you’re not convinced, just ask Dwayne. The guy has a solid workout routine that helps keep him grounded and ready for anything thrown at him. He’s currently doing a #BlackAdam workout, which involves leg curls, compound pressing movements, chain lunges, shark pit squats, and barbell squats.

The training helps improve blood volume, detail, and conditioning, which means it acts as a natural anti-depressant. Still need more reasons for hitting the HIITs and strength training workouts?

Just scroll through Dwayne’s IG page – you’ll get the inspiration you need.

Eat Right

Consuming healthy meals boosts your physical health and helps you save on $$$, bolsters your energy levels, and amps up your mood – you become a healthier, leaner, stronger, and happier person, which equals a better and successful life.

Dwayne subscribes to a ‘Power’ meal plan, consisting primarily of high-protein chicken, salmon, and buffalo, with light carbs like rice and sweet potatoes. He also loves his greens and then enjoys a delicious cheeseburger on the weekends as his cheat meal.
He mainly relies on natural protein sources, but he uses a casein protein shake now and then to improve his workout recovery.

Invest in Self-Care

Taking some time off to unwind does wonders for your mental health, mood, and self-esteem – and Dwayne Johnson knows this.

His preferred mode of relaxation? Fish farming. The Hawaiian-born icon spends his self-care time at his ‘happy place’ – his sprawling farm in Charlottesville. Dwayne has been raising his fish for over a decade now – trout, carp, sunfish, and more. And he works closely with a team of biologists to ensure a thriving ecosystem for his fish to live in.

When he’s not fishing, he loves spending time with his babies. This enables him to decompress and enjoy time off from all the noise.

You, too, can develop your decompression routine, and it doesn’t have to involve fish – we all can’t rear fish. So, try listening to music, hiking, cooking with your family, or learning a new skill. Whatever rocks your boat, do it!

Don’t Give Up

Dwayne always says failure is a virtue. So, don’t throw in the towel just yet. When the road gets brutal, get tougher, too. Challenges are meant to shape you and mold you. Were it not for the thousands of failures Dwayne experienced, no one would know The Rock today.

So, don’t be afraid to fall. That tiny or massive failure can help pave the path to becoming the next world icon.

Bill Cosby Hopes Appearing In Rap Video With Mephis Jelks Will Help Restore His Reputation

Bill Cosby Appearing In Rap Video, Comedian Will Star In Memphis Jelks' 'The Cosby Dance'

Bill Cosby is hoping to get back in the good graces of pop culture, and his first job out of prison is a cameo in a rap video.

According to Radar Online, the 84-year-old comedian is making a cameo in rapper Memphis Jelks’ music video, dedicated to the man once dubbed “America’s Dad.”

The song is called The Cosby Dance, and the two will begin shooting in the next few months as long as Covid cooperates.

“They plan on starting production in (3) months but they’re trying to watch this resurgence of Covid and be responsible,” Radar is told.

“The greatest legacy one can pass down to their children and grandchildren is not money nor material goods, but a legacy of truth and facts.

They [media] removed The Cosby Show, A Different World, and many of my Honorary Degrees,” Cosby said in a statement to Radar.

When Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned Cosby’s sexual assault charges in June, they “restored those feelings and memories, when they vacated my conviction, due to the egregious violation of my constitutional rights.”

Cosby feels honored a rapper like Memphis Jelks would create a song solely based on him.

“Now, comes a prolific rapper, Memphis Jelks, who adds to the restoration of my legacy with a powerful new song called, ‘The Cosby Dance’ Hey, Hey, Hey — Far From Finished,” Cosby’s statement continued.

Memphis Jelks is all about Cosby, telling Radar, “I believe the upcoming generation can learn a lot about overcoming adversities by studying and applying the principles of Dr. Cosby’s educational and career choices that have helped lead to his enormous success.”

“What better way than a viral song and dance in which the lyrics celebrate some of the great attributes of one of the greatest American comedians of all time, who happens to be Black,” he added.

After Cosby’s release from prison, his rep Andrew Wyatt told Radar, Cosby is gearing up for a big television and stand-up comedy comeback.

But this though!
