The list includes over 30 iron-crushing anthems.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson released a special Spotify playlist Thursday morning (June 28) to celebrate the launch of his new headphones collaboration with Under Armour and JBL. Titled “Iron Paradise Airwaves,” the curated list is designed to help crush a workout, and includes hard-hitters from Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” to Nicki Minaj’s “Chun-Li.”

Below the playlist, The Rock captioned, “Every day is a day to build. No shortcuts. No B.S. These are the beats that motivate me through the grind.” The training session jams definitely match his intensity. With everyone from Migos to Tech N9ne on the playlist, it’s sure to hype up anyone in the gym gearing up for a triathlon, karate-chopping blocks of wood or flipping giant tires.

The Rock’s new headphones, which can be purchased here, are part of Project Rock, a line of athletic apparel engineered for the craziest training sessions. Check out the full playlist for Iron Paradise Airwaves below.

You Can Listen To The Rock’s Workout Playlist The Next Time You Hit The Gym

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may have an illustrious acting career now, but before he began appearing in all your favorite movie, he was making a name for himself as a WWE wrestler. So he definitely knows a thing or two about working out.

And even though he’s busy raising two little ones and is also the dad to a teenager, Johnson still makes time to go to the gym.

He’ll even hit the weights after a 15-hour flight, according to his Instagram. Now that takes some serious dedication:

If you’re looking for a way to feel this motivated the next time you work out, you’re in luck! Because The Rock is here to help. He gave the MyFitnessPal blog the full list of music he listens to while exercising. So you now have the perfect way to channel The Rock when you’re working out!

The list features 31 different songs from rappers such as Drake and Cardi B, as well as rock bands such as Godsmack and Metallica. Needless to say, this playlist will be just what you need to give you a boost of energy.

You can listen to the full playlist here:

For Johnson, working out isn’t just some grueling task. It’s a way of life — and he honestly enjoys it.

“Working out is my therapy, and it’s cheaper than a shrink,” he told BodyBuilding.com. “I can’t imagine my life without training, honestly. And for getting results — as with anything in life, but especially with working out—there’s no substitute for hard work.”

And if you think about exercise in that way, your trip to the gym may seem like more than just something you have to do.

With that mentality — and with The Rock’s playlist at the ready — there’s no way you won’t absolutely crush your next workout.

This Is the One Food Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Can’t Live Without

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is in pretty good shape, to say the least. This A-lister started his career in professional wrestling, where his body was literally on display.

Now that he’s a serious actor, his body is still the same chiseled perfection it was when he was in the WWE. Fans may wonder what kind of diet he eats to maintain that level of muscle. Johnson recently opened up about his diet, and fans may be surprised at what his number one favorite food is.

It’s not just one diet fits all for Dwayne Johnson

Johnson doesn’t stick to one diet all the time. Like a lot of us, his diet depends on how he’s feeling, and what he has going on in his life. If he’s getting ready for a movie, he may try a new diet to get into shape.

That’s what he did for the movie Hercules. He tried something called the “12 Labors Diet” to get ready for that role. It called for a morning cup of Nemean Lion’s blood, rice, and protein, protein, and more protein. The Lion’s blood was apparently optional, but Johnson did eat at least 14 egg whites a day.

When he’s just trying to build muscle, though, he has a special diet he likes to follow. Interestingly, it also involves a ton of egg whites — at least 10 a day.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson loves protein

Like most muscle builders, Johnson believes in a high protein diet. Not just any protein will do: Lean protein is thought to be best for building muscles while avoiding fats.

For Johnson, there’s really only one lean protein worth eating, and that’s fish. He eats around 36 ounces of fish a day, which is nine times more than the recommended serving of four ounces. It’s definitely the one food he can’t live without.

Not all his protein is natural. In addition to the crazy amounts of fish he consumes a day, he also adds synthetic protein and supplements from time to time.

Even Dwayne Johnson’s cheat day meal is fish

Every good diet needs a cheat day. Johnson sticks to his diet religiously, but he does allow himself monthly cheat days. Surprisingly — or maybe not so surprisingly — one of his favorite cheat day meals is sushi. Instead of lean fish like cod, he eats fattier fish like salmon on days he’s allowing himself a treat.

He also likes his salmon with as much cream cheese as possible. Banana pancakes are another cheat day special for Johnson. He likes them with real maple syrup and peanut butter.

The Rock is not afraid of grains

Just got home from work and they say nothing good ever happens after 3am. Well, stick with me kid and I’ll show you all kinds of good shit that’ll happen after 3am. #tequila #buffalo #bonappetite

A lot of bodybuilders avoid carbs and grains like the plague. Johnson is not one of them. His muscle building diet consists of a lot of white rice, as much as five cups a day.

The Rock also loves sweet potatoes. He’ll add them to his meal whether he’s in muscle building mode or not. He prefers baked sweet potatoes, but he also has a special recipe for sweet potato fries. The fries are baked, and he adds cinnamon and liquid stevia so that they’re sweeter, without any extra calories.

Rock Out: Here’s The Rock’s Workout Playlist!

“Where my crew, where my kin, where are all my believers at? Where are all of my samurai, mastering their craft?” —Last One Standing by Mayday

If you’re one of the 92 million and counting in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s crew (that’s on Instagram alone), then you can just imagine the great one listening to these lyrics and gripping the iron a little bit harder. Maybe he’s getting set for a heavy bench press, or prepping for leg day. The lyrics keep pounding. The reps keep piling up. You know you want to be there.

Of course, this hip-hop banger is just one side of the playlist that Johnson released recently and announced on Instagram. There’s also plenty of classic rock from the likes of Boston, Joe Walsh, and even the Blues Brothers. There’s hip-hop royalty old and new, from NWA to Tech N9ne. Heck, there’s even some lighthearted funky fun from Bruno Mars. The only unifying style? This is seriously high-energy music from a seriously high-energy guy.

“My playlist below has some of my personal favorites to work out and get hyped to or if you just wanna be a cool BAMF, I got your back with these tracks,” Johnson said in his post.

If you want a pump between your ears, check out the complete playlist on Apple Music, or play it here.

You probably can’t lift like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at the gym, but now at least you can listen to the music that gets him in beast mode.

The Rock partnered with Apple Music and WWE 2K18 to produce an official soundtrack and shared it with his followers on Instagram. “I ain’t knockin’ no more, I’m breakin’ in..,” he wrote on the social media site. “My playlist below are some of my personal favorites to workout and get hyped to or if you just wanna be a cool BAMF, I got your back with these tracks.”

His list included 11 songs, which fans can find on iTunes. The songs include “Straight Out The Gate” by Tech9ne, “Smokin’” by Boston, “Boyz In The Hood” by NWA, “Last One Standing” by Mayday, “Soul Man” by Blues Brothers, “Black Skinhead” by Kanye West, “One Burbon, One Scotch, One Beer” by George Thoroughgood, “Rocky Mountain Way” by Joe Walsh, “Down With The Sickness” by Disturbed, “Runaway Baby” by Bruno Mars and “You Never Met a Motherf*cker Quite Like Me” by Kid Rock.

This isn’t the first time The Rock has tried to motivate his fans to workout like him by sharing his playlist. In the summer of 2015, he posted a different playlist on Facebook, explaining, “Just destroyed our Sunday training session with this playlist I put together this am. Passing it along to ya. That “All In a Days Work” is def something to f*ck with.”

Hip-hop playlists are clearly working for him, so it’s definitely worth seeing if these will get you on your way to be Rock-level ripped.

If you’re one of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s 109 million followers on Instagram, you know that those biceps don’t grow themselves. DJ posts Instagrams of his training in the Iron Paradise so often that it can even make an avid gym-goer feel like they’re slacking off. (ICYDK, the Iron Paradise is the name of his personal gym because it’s basically what a lifter’s gym dreams are made of.)

The Rock is the ultimate lesson in no-excuses workout motivation, considering he makes time to train even when he just hopped off a 14-hour, red-eye flight or it’s 4 a.m. and he has 12 hours of filming ahead of him. How the eff does he do it?! (More inspo: Here’s how some badass, committed women wake up at 4 a.m. to work out.)

While you can’t exactly hack the secret to his relentless dedication, now, at least, you can steal his workout playlist.

To celebrate the launch of his new Under Armour wireless training headphones, The Rock is generously sharing his favorite training playlist, “Iron Paradise Airwaves,” on Spotify for you to get ~swole~ to on your own.

So what, exactly, does The Rock listen to while he trains? Hint: It’s not J-Biebs. The playlist is full of the jams you’d imagine an NFL team blasting in the locker room before a big game (example A: “We Ready” by Archie Eversole). Then there’s a smattering of hard rock music (no pun intended, but LOL)-including “Rocky Mountain Way” by Godsmack and “Enter Sandman” by Metallica-and a selection of intense rap and can’t-not-dance-to-this hip-hop-like “Move Bitch” by Disturbing The Peace and Ludacris, “Burn” by Rick Ross, the Drake remix of Rihanna’s “Lemon,” and “I Like It” by Cardi B. (And if you saw The Rock’s “Hit the Quan” dance video go viral on the internet in 2015, you know he is without-a-doubt dancing and twerking to these songs between sets.)

Upon further investigation, it turns out that the secret to The Rock’s motivation (and muscles) might be F-bombs: All but three of the songs on the playlist are marked explicit. (Honestly, it’s not surprising: Swearing can legit help your score a better workout.)

Head to Spotify to add the playlist to your personal library, or listen below-and go get your lift on. Even better? Try The Rock’s total-body lifting routine for yourself while decked out in some of his Under Armour training gear. It’s basically guaranteed that you’ll have the best workout of your life.
