The Rock is throwing down the gauntlet, to you. Dwayne Johnson went on an incredibly challenging Hercules diet and workout regime to get in shape for the movie, which opens on July 25, and now he wants you to go through the same pain! The Rock has launched and wants you to share your photos and videos with him at #TeamHercules as you get yourself into physical condition similar to “the world’s first superhero.”

Check out this message from the man himself:

And The Rock was as good as his word, posting his back exercise workout on Twitter and Instagram. Check it out:

The workout was accompanied by this message: “Let’s kick this sumbitch off right… Here’s my back aka ‘slabs’ workout that I did for HERCULES. Push yourself, hit it strong and be sure to concentrate on good form. And for the love of all that holy in the world of iron — FOCUS! Have fun and send me your progress… #B2A #TeamHercules

On an aside, The Rock also thanked fans for making the Hercules movie trailer the most watched trailer on YouTube.
