Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doesn’t do anything half-assed. Especially not working out. Whether it’s crushing a workout after waking up at 4 a.m. in the #IronParadise following a full night of shooting Jumanji, or performing badass stunts on the set of the newest Fast & Furious spinoff, Johnson “blesses the iron” with the same high-octane intensity every single time. He’s a beast.

Here’s How Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Looked After 18 Weeks of Training for ‘Hobbs and Shaw’

That’s the biggest reason why the Fast 8 and Hobbs & Shaw star has gone from a football player whose career was derailed by injury to the world’s highest-paid actor and “Sexiest Man Alive.” So if there’s one guy you should be following on Instagram to make sure you’re staying motivated and going hard in the gym, it’s him.

There are some other ultra-fit celebrity dudes that are worth checking out—we listed 24 more of them who crush their workouts on Instagram—but “The Rock” ranks number one. If you want to workout like him, you can do that too with this workout Men’s Journal put together based on Johnson’s training for Jumanji—it’s certainly working for Johnson, who looks massive as Dr. Smolder Bravestone.

Man, does he even have time to sleep? (He has a great alarm clock to use if he actually does.)

Either way, Johnson knows how to dominate the gym better than anyone else in Hollywood. Here 10 of his best workout and training moments on Instagram to prove it:

Killer workouts the past few weeks at The Dungeon aka MetroFlex in a little town outside of Atlanta, called Buford. When I'm on the road shooting, I'll travel hours from wherever I'm staying just to find a hard core gym where the owners turn up the heat for me so it's a sweat box and members respectfully leave me alone. I've gotten after it at hard core gyms all around the world and every once in a while you find a very bad ass old school machine that's no longer made like this angled "Pec Deck" that's engineered to give your pecs a burn and pump full of blood like never before. Luv this lil' darlin' so much the owners were nice enough to let me buy it from them. She's already luv's my sweat so she'll fit in perfectly in my #IronParadise at home! I know.. "Pec Deck" sounds like a creepy chatroom name, but it's better than "Pec Meat" which is my nickname every time I train chest. #Dungeon #IronParadise #MyAnchor⚓️
