Looking for a little bit of self-motivation? Something that maybe, just might, get you off the couch and off your feet? Well, here’s the story of your everyday guy who got sick of his unhealthy lifestyle and took a stand. Most people would start the shift gradually…. transition with healthier meals or some cardio during the week.
However, Mark Webster is not most people. He didn’t take the traditional route to healthy living. Oh, no…he took on the lifestyle change with full force.
If you compared current day Mark Webster to Mark Webster 30 days ago, you would probably think he’s a different person. After realizing his lifestyle was less than ideal, Webster decided to trade-up. He really stepped up to the self-challenge, deciding to eat and train like muscle man Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for 30 days.
So what exactly does Johnson’s lifestyle consist of? Beside working out religiously, Johnson consumes nearly 5,000 calories a day. His meal plan consists of seven different meals spread throughout the day. The plan is not as easy, or cheap, as it seems. Webster ended up spending nearly $1,262 on food, nearly $42 a day with $18 of it being dedicated to cod.
The unique diet required nearly an hour or a half of preparation every two to three day. Webster claimed “The biggest thing with the eating is the interruption of your day. Every few hours, you have to stop and eat again.”
As for the training, Webster followed Johnson’s regime. With an hour of cardio and ninety minutes of weight training for six out of seven days a week. Webster documented the changes and progress. While his weight didn’t budge, he gained a significant amount of muscle mass just one month after the lifestyle changes. Mark believes that his strength increased a solid 10 to 15 percent.
Johnson uses his social media platform to consistently share his fitness regimen with his followers. His admirable fitness can be seen up close and on the big screen in his new movie Baywatch.
When asked to comment on his lifestyle change, Webster stated “‘I’m 37, I got little aches and pains all the time but I have none of those anymore. I feel better than I did before I was doing this. My resting heart rate has dropped like four beats per minute over the past month. I feel fantastic.”
Webster’s challenge got quite the attention, with Johnson commenting on the situation as well. Johnson, although doubtful at first, was impressed with Webster’s discipline. After experiencing the diet and workout himself, Webster developed a newfound respect for Johnson, “The fact that he looks like this and trains like this every day of this life while making his movies, being on set 14 hours? That kind of discipline to me is absolutely amazing.”
