It’s no secret that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson goes hard in the gym — and he has the hands to prove it.
In a new Instagram video posted on Dec. 18, The Rock shows off his calloused, scarred and worn hands, set to the sound of blaring gym music playing in the background. With just one look, the hours and hours of work, training and all-around abuse those mitts have endured is immediately apparent.
“If these torn-up, fucked-up, scarred-up, broken knuckle[d], torn tendon and calloused hands could talk…” The Rock writes in his caption.
Johnson is ever one for inspirational talk, so it’s no surprise he turned a simple video of his beat-up hands into a statement about his character and his perseverance. But the whole thing really does say volumes about why everyone loves The Rock.
The actor, former wrestler and all-around buff bro writes, “They might be hard-on-the-eyes to look at and a bit jarring to the touch, but they tell the story of my life and it’s who I am — and when I look you in the eyes and shake your hand with these torn up suckers, you can bet your hard earned dollar I’ll see my word through.”

The Rock adds, “Contracts and term sheets are binding (legally), but the real code and binding agreement is our handshake. Eye-to-eye.” Damn.
To close out the post, The Rock gets cheeky, writing, “That said, I’ll be getting my very first manicure on Jan. 1. Ehh, fuck that. Never.”
Well, that’s that then.
