Dwayne Johnson takes to Instagram with bloody gym accident injury


Despite his toned physique and gym prowess, Dwayne Johnson still falls victim to accidents while getting his workout on.

The "Moana" star took to Instagram on Monday to reveal a minor - albeit bloody - injury he suffered while taking to the weighted chains at the gym. The affected area appears right above his eye.

With blood dripping down his face, Johnson touches the affected area with his fingers and licks it, saying, "That's good, that's real good. Back to work."

In the caption, Johnson explained that the gym is nothing to mess with, writing, "We ain't playin' tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes - it's called the #ironparadise for a reason and things get extremely intense."

He then explained how the injury came to be, saying, "Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set - I got lumped up and need stitches."

But the injury didn't stop him from completing what he went to the gym to do in the first place. He pushed through and kept working out through his face injury. "Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later - rules of the house," he wrote.

He even joked that his blood tasted like "BlaMoan Hot Sauce," explaining that "BlaMoan" is a mixture of "black and samoan."

Johnson is no stranger to the gym, and if it wasn't obvious from his physique, just check his Instagram. He took to the 'gram on Sunday to reveal his pre-workout stance, sporting a sleeveless hoodie that reads, "same game different levels, same hell different devils."

One user, shocked at Johnson's size, even took to the comments section to write, "That's not the rock, it's a boulder."
