Ball in. Or nothing.
SEASON FINALE this Sunday. As always, THANK YOU for rockin' with us and makin' us a very successful show on @HBO.
Helluva run. #Ballers#SeasonFinale SUNDAY 10pm.
Our mana (spirit) is strong.
Intense workouts are part of my daily process. I need the intensity to anchor my day, so the last thing I want is to be interrupted... but, for THIS MAN, I will gladly stop my workout, remove my headphones and respectfully remove my hat so I can shake hands and hug @c.t.ali.fletcher.
I started tracking CT years ago. Quietly following him in the shadows and admiring the impact he's had on so many people's lives. About a year ago I watched one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen, about his life called #MyMagnificentObession. In the doc, I was specifically moved by the relationship he had with his dad. When I shared this with CT, he then proceeds to tell me how much my dad (Rocky Johnson) influenced him growing up. Crazy how life comes full circle that way.
CT exemplifies what it means to overcome the odds and work so intensely hard at something, it becomes an obsession. But CT's real power, will always be the gratitude and humility he has in his heart.
Life is crazy and busy for all of us, but when we can fuel it with a lil' gratitude and humility - life becomes that much better.
Pleasure to meet you brother, thank you for the inspiration and as always.. ISYMFS. 🏾 (keep kickin' ass Samson and carrying on that family tradition)
Just stoppin' by to deliver some early CHRISTMAS joy.
And by joy, I mean the the hangry crocodile is seconds away from devouring his bite size chocolate snack named Kevin Hart. Yum.
Our new @jumanjimovie poster.
Love, Dwanta Claus 🏾
Ladies and gentlemen and kids of all ages..
This CHRISTMAS the hottest game of the holiday season isn't one you play... it's one that plays YOU.
Here's the 60 second cut down of the NEW @JumanjiMovie spot. * WATCH FULL trailer in my bio.
BEWARE: this game will always find a way to be played. #Jumanji
Love, Dwanta Claus 🏾
** UPDATE: just heard Matt is starting his chemo TODAY (tues Sept 19th). Stay strong brother. You got this.
Rain ain't stoppin' this lil' ol package of sunshine.
NYC Firefighter, Matt McDevitt, we now inspire each other, but more importantly congrats to you and your wife, Jackie on your new baby boy. There's no role you'll ever play that's greater than "father". I know you got a fight ahead of ya with chemo and radiation so stay strong brother and eventually you gotta take that shirt off dude. Sweat turns to stink.
Thank you for being a fan. Thank you for being a bad ass inspiration. #FirstResponders#NYCFirefighters#WelcomeBabyJamesMichael 🤙🏾
A lil' teaser before our worldwide trailer debut this WEDNESDAY. The game continues, but this time it plays YOU.
If you're down, then just get on my back.. #JUMANJI
Only 2 EPISODES left of our record setting season of #Ballers.
As always, THANK YOU for rockin' with us.
TONIGHT 10pm on @HBO
To survive, everything must evolve and grow.
Great to see our sport evolve to the Classic Physique Division.
This division is a throw back and homage to my favorite bodybuilders as a kid from Frank Zane to Lee Haney to the Austrian Oak himself, Arnold.
As my good bud Steve Weinberger says, thru evolution our sport's only getting bigger and better.
Good luck this weekend boys and leave it all on the stage.
I'll be at the waffle truck with the cheat meals. Link in bio. #OlympiaTakeover#SevenBucksProds#NewEra
#1 for 10 weeks. THANK YOU guys.
And a huge shout out to my POWERFUL & SEXY thumbs 🏾
Best part about this is that 5yrs ago studios and businesses were trying to figure out just how valuable social media was to a company's bottom line. Does it truly add revenue$?
Today it's one our of biggest assets in global advertising and marketing, but more important, for me -- the most important platform I have to be connected to people in the most authentic way possible.
Very powerful tool. Be smart with how you use your voice. And always save room for ice cream
Groundbreakers of our sport. Our @sevenbucksds#OlympiaTakeover continues.
It's incredible that the women of the @mrolympiallc make up more than HALF of the competitors.
This kind of growth and daring to break the mold, in what has been largely considered a male dominated sport for decades is astounding... and inspiring.
Proud of you ladies. True "Wonder Women" of our sport.
This weekend, you'll show the world how bad ass you are. We'll see you in Vegas! #Olympia 🏾🤙🏾
*new vid in my bio
My family and I survived a devastating category 5 hurricane (Andrew). Wiped us out, but we and our community got back up on our feet and came back stronger.
And so will you.
Gotta hold onto faith and stay strong.
Thank you everyone out there who's given a few bucks or even prayers and positive energy. It all adds up. * link in my bio for more info. #HandInHand
Excited to produce the first of its kind #OlympiaTakeover with our @sevenbucksds about a sport I have such respect, love and passion for.
We want to elevate and shine a new light on the biggest and most iconic event in the world of bodybuilding and showcase the incredible athletes stepping onto the @mrolympiallc stage.
My fundamental actions for my success have always been rooted in bodybuilding.
Regardless of what you do in life.. success will always come down to your hunger and the sweat you're willing to drop to achieve your goals.. and how many cheat meal pancakes you can destroy 🥞
Let the storytelling begin. I'll see you in Vegas. #OlympiaTakeover#SevenBucksProds#HonoringTheSport#AnimalInAllOfUs *link in bio 🤙🏾
Surprise to my @laurenhashianofficial! 🏾 HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a very special, beloved, one of a kind girl.
I had my trailer decorated as a surprise when she walked in as we sang some happy birthday.. But why stop there when we can have mo fun... as she was getting this trailer surprise, I had a crew go to our house and decorate so when she got home she was surprised yet again.
We celebrated all weekend and to cap it off our lovely mamas performed a beautiful Polynesian hula for the honored birthday girl.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE, family, friends and all who was involved in creating such a phenomenal birthday weekend for Lauren. Amazing and so cool to see all the endless love that everyone has for this girl.
Happy Birthday darlin' darlin'! I love you and you already know, but it's appropriate I say it again, I'm a grateful man you were born.
Now excuse me while I go destroy the rest of your cake. (liwdyn;)
YM aka the surprise
Art imitates life.
TONIGHT 1030pm on @HBO.
Excuse my lovely language but f*ck just wanting to play in the game, but rather influence how the game is played.
That's when it gets fun.
Thanks for rockin' with us this season. Enjoy the show tonight. #Ballers 1030pm on HBO.
Just shot a PSA for Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Thank you to everyone involved. 🏾
Years ago me and my family survived Hurricane Andrew, a devastating category 5 storm that wiped us out down in South Florida.
But like our community we came back stronger, because there are no strangers in the wake of a hurricane. No political parties, no pettiness and no agendas. Just people helping other people get back on their feet.
Thanks to everyone involved in shooting this PSA and thanks to everyone who donated and who's lending a hand.
Our family and friends are all boarded up in their homes in south Florida and throughout the state, bracing for what Hurricane Irma decides to deliver.
Click the link in my bio to donate, then tune in this TUESDAY on ABC, CBS, CMT, FOX and NBC. #HandInHand
Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get Shit Done) table that's inside my trailer.
This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes.
Great shot by @sevenbucksprod President @hhgarcia41 capturing our post meeting aftermath. #SecretWeapon#GSDTable#LetsGetShitDone
Let's get after it ladies. I'm always watching.
Thank you @nzmusclegym for the honor of this bad ass mural serving as inspiration for your members.
I used to live in New Zealand as a kid and whenever I go back, I'll do my best to stop by to clang and bang and drop some sweat with you guys and gals.
Congrats on your new opening, best of luck and stay strong. 🏾 #ForgedInIron#RockMural#NZMuscleGym
WEEK 3 complete of our hostage action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
The most physically and emotionally daunting role of my career. Grateful to push the limits.
The Academy Award winning master Robert Elswit ("There Will Be Blood") operating the camera.
A challenging film. A talented crew. #Week3#Survival#SkyscraperMovie SUMMER 2018
Getting some killer training accomplished up here in Canada. I travel with this entire hardcore gym to every location I shoot in because (for me) it's the only way this lead dog eats.
I'm training in the new #ProjectRock USDNA @underarmour gear that's inspired by the men and women of our US MILITARY. Including these new bad ass Desert Sand #RockDelta training shoes. I train for months in all our new gear before it reaches your hands, so you know it's the real deal.
Thanks as always for the inspired #ProjectRock support. #NeverFull#IronParadiseCanada#USDNA
New collection drops this November
I saw an early screening of IT a few months ago and it instantly became one of my all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time.
Not only does it redefine the horror genre, but it's so layered, smart and brilliantly scary.
Congrats to the awesome young cast aka The Losers Club for killing their performances. To Bill Skarsgard for delivering an iconic performance as Pennywise. And to the entire crew and my good buds at Warner Bros/New Line.
And most of all congrats to director, Andy Muschietti for making such a defining film. You knocked it outta the f*cking park!
Great talking with you man and we're gonna have some fun working together down the road.
As a huge fan of the horror genre, this one's special.
Have you fully recovered @simonegjohnson?
Jacob was super nervous and shy the whole time we hung out, so it was fun getting him to laugh and talk. He threw me for an unexpected spin when he showed up on set wearing a shirt that he proudly made with my bull insignia on the front and on the back was the picture of me holding our two puppies, Brutus and Hobbs, after I rescued them from our pool.
Seeing that picture on this boy's shirt, got me in the gut. Eventually, we would lose Brutus to heaven, but it wasn't the picture of Brutus that made me tear up, it was the fact that this 10yr old kid, had a heart big enough to put our puppies on his shirt after he saved his little 2yr old brother's life.
What a special day. What a special kid. Thanks Jacob for being awesome and for being the kind of person we all aspire to be. ~ DJ
Surprise! (mama shedding a few happy tears for her boys)
I told Jacob and his brother Gavin that when kids visit my movie sets, it's like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory because children get to eat all the chocolate and sweets they want and the best part is...IT'S ALL FREE.
Well someone has to pay for it, but it ain't me or the kids lol.
Thank you to our entire #Skyscraper crew for all doing their part to make this visit special for this family. #OnSet#RockWonka#OConnorFamily#SugarRush

Big Rock hugs for mama Christa O'Connor. As you can imagine, she's so proud of her son and even more, so grateful to have her boys.
She told me that at first she wondered "Wait, I am just calling Jacob a hero because I'm a proud mom and he's my son? Then I said, no wait.. he IS a real hero for saving his brother's life". Amen.
Yup, he sure is.
Thank you so much Christa for flying out to Vancouver to allow us to meet you and your boys, Jacob and Gavin. We had a blast and grateful to have you on our set. #OConnorFamily#ProudMama
Ladies and gentlemen, I finally met this real life 10yr old hero, Jacob O'Connor. He rescued his 2yr old brother after finding him facedown in their pool.
I said, not only do I shake hands, but when I meet heroic kids, I give hugs.. now get in here. Despite the fact I looked like 9 ways of hell, battered and bloodied from my scenes, Jacob reluctantly, gave me a hug. 🤙🏾. A very special day we had on our #Skyscraper set. #JacobOConnor#Hero
Update: our new highly anticipated #ProjectRock USDNA @underarmour collection drops this VETERANS DAY honoring our warrior men and women of our US MILITARY.
And yeah if I have to pee while working out I'll do it in a bottle. I'm that kinda guy. Just get the job done. 🤙🏾
Chalked up and heavily calloused on one of my fav holidays - Labor Day. Cheers to always putting in the hard work with our two hands.
My hands may be f*cked up, calloused and clearly super sexy, but when I shake your hand and look you in the eye and commit; it's stronger than any labor contract we could sign. I'm old school that way.
Cheers to the working men and women today. Enjoy your families. #TradeAndLabor#HandShakesAndEyeContact#IGot5GoodOnesForYa
Bloody and battered w/ my director @rawsonthurber between takes.
WEEK 3 complete of our action thriller #SKYSCRAPER.
This is my second film with Rawson putting my trust in his hands. A very smart, ambitious, extremely focused and methodical guy who wants to deliver a f*cking intensely breathtaking and epic film for the fans.
Our story takes place in China. In the penthouse of the world's tallest skyscraper... on fire.
More details to come down the road. Until then, WEEK 3 complete and we'll just keep on keepin' on. #JohnsonThurber#SKYSCRAPER
