It’s one thing to head out to your gym, gather your gym bag, get your towel and water bottle, and make that extended trek in traffic. It’s another thing entirely to have a gym at home. Now, wouldn’t that be convenient and save you a ton of headaches?

We’ve got an answer for you, and it’s timed perfectly for Memorial Day. This holiday weekend, you can get some dynamite deals on exercise equipment from Force USA. A few highlights include:

  • A killer 45-degree hack squat with 20 percent off

  • An all-in-one training machine marked off 15 percent

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has seemingly done it all. He was a college football player for the Miami Hurricanes. He’s one of the biggest superstars in WWE history. And he’s now one of the biggest movie stars in every sense of the phrase.

Johnson continues to flourish partly because he’s built like a human tank. Now, you might be wondering: How strong is this he? We think we’ve figured it out.

Based on sample workouts that he shares all the time and anecdotal legends about the icon, here’s a breakdown of how strong Johnson really is.

From some good old-fashioned bison burgers to tomahawk steaks (we said, “Wait, what?” too), here are six high-protein foods you should eat this holiday.
