These hips don’t lie.
WWE legend The Rock claimed he was “bionic from the waist down” after posting a new hip thrust personal best of 460 pounds this month — and shared footage of the feat with his 126 million Instagram followers.
But there’s bionic strength — and freakish power.
NBA MVP contender Giannis Antetokounmpo claims to have added 50 pounds of pure muscle since he entered the league in 2014 and his muscles aren’t for show.
The Greek Freak raised an eyebrow like The Rock used to during his professional wrestling heyday when he saw the now actor’s personal best hip thrust on Instagram.
Alongside teammate Pat Connaughton, Antetokounmpo raised the bar and issued a challenge for The Rock to come and lift with him in the Milwaukee Bucks’ so-called Iron Paradise while thrusting 570 pounds.
Antetokounmpo (24) is about half The Rock’s age (46) but that’s still an impressive mark.
For comparison, NFL veteran and world famous gym junkie James Harrison has thrusted up to 675 pounds while some powerlifters have reached 800 pounds.
The forward’s workouts are becoming the stuff of legend — and making him one of the most physically dominant players the league has seen.
He’s getting as many dunks a game as anyone since Shaquille O’Neal while leading the Bucks to the NBA’s best record thus far.
