The Rock

Don't Ask Hercules How Much He Benches!

That's Sooo High School

7/23/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dwayne Johnson WorkoutWhen ya see a guy the size of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson … one obvious question pops in your head, but whatever you do -- do NOT ask it out loud  … as our camera guy learned.

The Rock -- so damn huge he's playing "Hercules" -- was in NYC Tuesday when our pap fell into gym meathead mode and asked, "How much are you benching?"

You gotta see Rock's initial reaction to the question (which he must hear 100 times/day) -- but he does eventually hit the photog with the perfect answer … for the smartass question. 

Our guy shoulda learned from Alex Pettyfer -- who made the same screwup on Muscle Beach last weekend.

Damn, he is so fine. I agree with Bridget, too: he's a likeable guy. Like, a genuinely nice guy.

Benching is an overrated exercise, anyway. There ARE other chest exercises in existence, that are very effective. The answer to the question also depends on how many reps we're talking about: 1 rep maximum? 6 rep set? 8 rep set?

That meathead needs to learn to just answer the flippin' question. It's not a big one. He wouldn't even have to think....much,

That's pretty cool to see him sign autographs and take pics with his fans. A lot of athletes won't give their fans the time of day let alone take a picture with them. You can see Hollywood hasn't changed him which is rare.

Why do guys get so offended when people ask how much they lift? That's considered a compliment.
