    I can’t believe this was the first article I found when I typed in “the rock looks slimmer” It is a great article and very easing to my mind. In High School I was a skinny cross country runner, picked on I was 6’4 180lbs when I graduated. It constantly haunted me, I watched the rock and just though,man, If I was that big no one would mess with me. I dedicated myself to the gym starting in 2002, seeing slow gains at first, I was consistent, 5-6 days in the gym pounding away, lifting more, eating more. Finally in 2004 I got up to 235, this was when I was givin the name “Big” Dan. But I desired to be like triple H, the Rock, and Hogan, the larger than life guys. Big just wasnt big enough. I got a raw bench press of 525 pounds, no shirt, no steroids…raw. I deadlifted 605 with no straps. My weight was 280 at my biggest, I look and still do look just like the rock, literally, Ill send you a pic!

    My current weight is 270, I have the exactl look of him in his peak and I tell you, you cannot find clothes. I wear a 4X shirt, a 54 long suit with a 40 pant . YOu cannot wear fashionable clothes, you have to shop at big and tall, and you are deemed a meathead. Guys are scared of you and think its cool, but women much rather look at a lean cut muscular guy than a bulked up scary guy! The rock now looks great. I am going to work my weigh down to about 240 or 230 so I can feel faster, leaner, and fit into clothes…great article thank you!

    Bruce Lee was extremely strong, as strong he could be I’d venture to say and still he had a low BMI, a light weight and a small figure.
    You don’t need to be heavy to be strong.

    It really is ashame that so many young males fall into the “I need to get as huge as possible” look. Since I myself am only 15, I have many friends who are already asking how they can get bigger and bigger and I keep telling them that it isn’t the way to go.

    They will just laugh at me and tell me that the girls love huge muscles. I have never really told them the truth that girls don’t love the meat-head look. I will let them find that out on their own and then I will be the one laughing when I get all the girls :)

    Well i seen Fast Five lastnite and the rock looked huge! His arms are massive bug he doesnt look bulky. I think he contrated mostly on his arms to prepare for the film

    I feel he is still a rock, regardless what size it is, any rock thrown at you will hurt, if thrown hard enough. Duane is a good rock so he’s not tryin to hurt anyone, and he look better lighter to me, but it’s not about me it’s about him, if he like it, then we should like it.
    He has a great personality and respect for all, so let all love and respect him, he’s a good role model. You go rock, rock this place.

    I love Rock. But I’m sad that he is not fighting in wrestlemania :-(

    If I remember rightly The Rock bulked up before Fast 5 due to his preperations to return to WWE, as he is going back to wrestle again for a while. And even though he looks good slimmed down, he looks REALLY good bulked up. But at least he doesnt look like he did when he first started his WWF career, that was just too much.

    What a stupid article. Doing pansy cardio exercises so you can fit into nice clothes and attract more women?

    You hit the nail on the head about Rock’s transformation, too me this is the ideal look of a man,and at his weight these days, the hardcore bodybuilding fanboys are too damn dumb to realize he is far from being at a skinny and wimpy size. You don’t have to weigh 275 to 350 pounds to be strong, you don’t have to be a no-neck,midget headed,ugly fuck,to bodyslam and throw people around. Vince McMahon (The Rocks old employer) is a pudgy, muscle bound freak himself, at 6’2 235 lbs, he thrives on the human male looking like apes

    I would have to agree with being all muscle at a less weight (200-225 pound frame) instead of being combined muscle with bulk and fat (260+ pound frame). I myself feel underweight, but I know I am all lean muscle (6’2″ 180 pounds) and could take down my friends who outweigh me by 30+ pounds because they are alot of fat with less muscle. The rock looks better slim and I think that Arnold looked his best in the movie Commando. The only person I think that actually looks good at a big size would be Bill Goldberg. In his later years in wrestling and acting roles he looked perfect at a big size still because he is the definition of all muscle and power while not looking too ridiculously muscle bound or pudgy. Something just doesn’t sit right with me when thinking of a small Goldberg. Interesting points here, respect them as they are individual opinions.

    he probably is slimming down now , because at an older age working out is tougher , so to prevent becoming fat hes slimming down

    What a ridiculous article. As someone else has said in the comments section, stop trying to speak for everyone. I’m 20, dating a 27-year-old, and she fucking loves the big look. It makes the age gap pretty much void because it doesn’t look like she’s dating a skinny youngster.

    As someone who is naturally big, hitting the gym and getting into bodybuilding definitely helped me in terms of self-esteem, confidence, and it opens up a whole other world, as well as giving me something to do when I’m not in university and don’t want to sit on my ass all day like a lot of people do.

    If a guy wants to be big, let him be big. In my experience, it’ll be better for him than your advice of getting slim so you can fit into your girl jeans from Hot Topic and brag to girls about your sensitive side.

    I agree with you on the vast majority of this article; however, your comment about unhealthy amounts of protein is invalid. Recently, took many studies have come out showing there are very few if any unhealthy side effects with high protein diets (unless the individual is eating above their caloric baseline). There was also another study that showed no difference in long term kidney disease between groups that consumed low protein and normal protein amounts. Which pretty much busts the use of the Brenner Hypothesis showing that protein is “bad”. Furthermore, the research I am currently reviewing shows that raising protein to 1.5g/kg in clinical populations during hypocaloric/low calorie diets has a fat free mass sparing effect. There is some thought that athletes with some muscle mass may even want to go higher than this. This would be a useful strategy for the vast majority of the patrons on this website. I see what you are saying with the high protein potentially being dangerous, if high fatty sources of protein are being consumed. Do not be so generic when you bash protein..most people would do better eating more lean protein and cutting their carb intake back a tad.

    He’s huge again, every bit as big as he was before, but far more ripped up, and 9/10 women I talk to think he’s the hottest thing in pro wrestling next that dude with the alpha jaw, John Cena…who has more muscle than the Rock does lol. This is yet another example of an ignorant post that sounds like someone small trying to convince themselves that big muscles mean shit, so they don’t worry as much about not having them. So if a bigger person wears the same clothes as a smaller person, they’re a tool? That makes sense. Maybe you want them to walk around naked? Wtf. Next, apparently you haven’t actually watched one of the Rock’s matches, as he had no issues with endurance. Much like many other bigger wrestlers, football players, etc.(really – how ignorant are you?). I’m 275lbs at 17% bodyfat, and I ingest about 175 grams of protein a day, which is probably more than I actually need to continue gaining, but hardly unhealthy. Finally…gas? Are you kidding? So that’s a terrible negative to eating high protein levels, but when it comes from eating plenty of fruits and vegetables(which it will, far more so than some protein powder), you’re ok with that gas?
    Stop talking. The world’s overall I.Q. drops with each ignorant comment you utter.

    Nick I don’t know who you are, but you talk a lot of sense fella!

    You Mr Spock’d it!

    You can’t argue with logic!

    The joker who wrote this article wasn’t looking at any facts just his own jaded opinion, of what is, or isn’t attractive. Granted a well conditioned balanced muscular form is far more attractive than one that is just large and bulky, but that’s a bit like saying you’ll look better and br fitter if you lose body fat weight. Its a no brainer! As your aesthetics and golden ratio adjusts accordingly, you will naturally look more pleasing to the eye anyway.
