Video: How to get ripped like Hercules – Part 1

You'll have to grow the beard yourself though...

Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Horrible Bosses) and starring Dwayne Johnson's muscles, Ian McShane, Dwayne Johnson's beard, John Hurt and even more of Dwayne Johnson's massive muscles, Hercules is a brand spankin' new action adventure film that will tell the tale of the tormented, earth-bound Demigod.


At 42 years of age, Dwayne Johnson is in remarkable shape. At a considerably younger age, JOE is not quite in as remarkable shape.

We wanted to change that fact and so, ahead of the release of the excellent-looking Hercules, we headed along to chat to our good friends at RAW Condition Gym, trainers Kane Kearns and Andy Hickey, to find out just how we could go about getting into Herculean shape.

In a series of five workout videos, the lads will focus on a different part of the body to help you get defined like Dwayne. Up first, it's the arms...
