The “baby makers,” he calls them.
Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to dish out a small technicality about the warm up to an intense leg workout. Specifically for his hips and glutes, Johnson, due to his laundry list of injuries, is attentive to spending time warming up and getting loose.
In the clip below he hammers out a few knee-banded glute raises, were he does a “5 second hold at the top, squeezed, with resistance bands above the knees using 225lbs.”
Johnson proves the point that no matter how strong and young you are, warming up your hips is neccesary no matter your routine. Besides, “The Rock” wasn’t lying when he said strong hips can help you in the bedroom.

Fun warmup activating glutes and hips before destroying legs. 5 second hold at the top, squeezed, with resistance bands above the knees using 225lbs. Gotta warm up properly due to all my sexy lower body injuries from years of wrestling and football (two L4 & L5 low back disc ruptures, five knee surgeries, torn Achilles, tore both my quad and adductor from my pelvis and repaired three hernias all in one lovely emergency surgery). Lots of fun pain, but we fight thru it and come back stronger and better. Plus this exercise showcases the relentless power in my thrust game which is my jam when we practice making babies. ???? Who wants extra cheese on their pizza? Because I got endless amounts with that last paragraph. Bottom line/ do your warm ups. They're critical. #LegDay #BattleScarred #WarmUps #AkaBabyMakers #TheDungeon
