Dwayne Johnson explains why he wees in water bottles at the gym

Dwayne Johnson explains why he wees in water bottles at the gym

The Rock gets up to some pretty wild things in the gym - and it's not just lifting weights

CAN YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS... doing in the corner of a gym with a water bottle near his nether regions?

One look at Dwayne Johnson will tell you how determined he is to keep fit - but a lot of fans weren't aware that he even bathroom breaks play second fiddle to his intense workouts.

The former WWE wrestler, 51, can't drag himself away from the gym equipment even just for a few minutes to relieve himself, despite the fact he swigs numerous bottles of water to stay hydrated.

He doesn't cross his legs ridiculously tightly while pumping iron to hold it in though, as he's found another bizarre solution to making the most of every second he gets to exercise.

For who knows what reason, Johnson decided to share his life hack with the world and admitted that he urinates in his water bottles while he is at the gym.

During an interview with Esquire in 2021, the actor discussed his strict diet and exercise regimen as well as what he reckons are the most important aspect of working out, one of which is making sure he always drinks plenty.

The Rock admitted he relieves himself in bottles while at the gym.

The Rock explained: "I usually stay pretty hydrated. I need to go to the bathroom a lot.

"Not a lot, but probably a couple of times during a workout I have to go to the bathroom. So I break out the bottle."

Yep, he even has a little catchphrase to describe his solution to getting rid of a full bladder in the gym, too.

Johnson continued: "I do pee in my water bottles, but let me give context to that.

"It’s not a water bottle that I’ve actually purchased solely for water that you wash and you clean when you’re done using it.

"These are just bottles that I’m no longer using and usually the gyms that I workout in don’t have a bathroom because they’re the iron paradise. It’s just hot, sweaty and dirty."

Johnson says he always stays hydrated.

Although you may think a celebrity of his stature would be a regular at one of the most prestige fitness facilities the world has to offer, he claims that the majority of the ones he frequents do not have bathrooms.

God help those who need a number two after a squat session.

People were obviously left quite shocked by Johnson's bold admission and some social media users were also left pretty sickened by the thought of him peeing into a water bottle.

One said: "That was too much information... What ‘facilities’ could possibly not have a bathroom? Also, it’s very difficult to pee in a water bottle. Maybe Gatorade, but water... no way."

Another wrote: "Did we all really need to know about this? Isn't anything kept personal anymore?"

A third joked: "This man can afford anything he wants... except a bathroom."

A fourth added: "How can a gym not have a bathroom? I've never been to one that doesn't include a shower and a bathroom. I like how this is cool because it's the Rock, but anyone else would be met with disgust."

And a fifth chimed in: "You could see he didn't wanna talk about the water bottle situation. Weird bringing it up."
