The stunt double of Dwayne & # 39; The Rock & # 39; Johnson of almost 20 years old has revealed their training routines, diets and the favorite unhealthy snacks they both enjoy.
Tanoai Reed, 45, from Hawaii, first decorated the screens as a stand-in during the movie & # 39; The Scorpion King & # 39; and has since been fighting through blood, sweat and muscle tears on behalf of the leading man.
Reed, which is 6ft 3 and weighs 260 pounds, according to its IMDB page, has stood in everything from the Fast & Furious series to Hercules.
To ensure that their physical appearance matches, they follow the same training routines and diet five days a week for each role.
Over the years, there was a close relationship between Johnson and Reed GQ, and they regularly exchange recommendations about their favorite cheats, donuts and pizza.
Johnson was & # 39; the world's highest paid actor in the world and earned $ 124 million last year and was number 15 overall on the celebrities of Forbes list.

Reed praised his friend as he spoke to GQ: & # 39; Everything he does is from the heart and I could not have asked for a better boss and partner.
& # 39; It is rare for an actor to appreciate or even acknowledge their double stunt. It's all about their ego, but with Dwayne he doesn't really have one.
& # 39; I've been doing it for 25 years and I still have these moments when I pinch myself and think I can't believe I'm being paid for this. It is certainly exciting. & # 39;
Reed explained that as a replacement for Johnson over the years, he broke a tibia, ankle, a rib, muscle sprains, and more.
After one muscle crack, he was unable to run or jump for two months, he told the site.
During a fight with Jason Statham's stunt double in Fast and Furious 7, a large piece of glass tore open his arm.
Reed told GQ: & # 39; I had to undergo emergency surgery because there were shrapnel in my arm. I have certainly beaten myself up over the years.
& # 39; Yes, it was pretty scary. The ER doctor opened the dressing and the blood spurted out.
& # 39; He said he couldn't fix it, so they had to call a specialist for surgery.
& # 39; It was actually a shark bite. I was in full cast from my elbow to my fingertips for three months. But it's all good now, except for a huge scar. & # 39;
Reed (above) reveals some of the insane workouts that he and Johnson are undertaking to & # 39; rock-hard abs & # 39; hold. They train a maximum of one and a half hours per routine

Between films, Reed recommends taking long periods of time without training specific areas to heal muscles and other injuries.
He keeps his physique under control with stretch and yoga to ensure that the muscles stay loose.
Johnson and Reed must conduct mirrored training sessions to ensure that their bodies match.
Depending on how many topless scenes are needed, they will change the regime.
Every routine changes every few months, he told the site, and for each session they spend up to 1 hour and 30 minutes training a specific body part.
"You are not going to get more results by staying in the gym," Reed told the site.
& # 39; You need to train the muscles, then rest and recuperate. That's when you make a profit is the rest time. & # 39;
Specifically for Johnson & # 39; s film from 2014, Hercules Reed and Johnson had to be in & # 39; torn form & # 39; which they had prepared for between four and five months.
Other roles can be slightly less demanding, he added.
& # 39; Jungle Cruise was a historic piece and he had these baggy pirate shirts and pants, & # 39; said Reed. & # 39; Nobody saw much of the physique, so I could cheat a little with my diet.
& # 39; But then there are movies in which you wear tight spandex shirts and show everything, so you have to dial in. & # 39;
Johnson and Reed have been working together for almost 20 years. Last year Johnson donated a new truck to his stunt double to thank him for his service, in the comments (above) he was speechless and could not believe his kindness.

Johnson has a chef who is preparing his meals for a new role, & # 39; weighing us & # 39 ;, count his macro & # 39; s and making him eat every two hours.
Meanwhile, Reed, who does not have access to the same facilities, often uses intermittent fasting for 16 hours, where he eats only eight hours a day.
He also revealed that while they work hard, they also play hard, sharing a strong passion for their two favorite unhealthy snacks.
Reed said: & # 39; Dwayne and I share a love for donuts. He actually collects donuts from certain places and sends them to me, or takes a box to put somewhere else.
& # 39; Pizza too. We will always share our new pizza and donut places with each other. & # 39;
But eating and working do not have everything in common. A strong bond has continued to grow over the years.
Johnson even bought a new truck from his stand-in to thank him for his friendship and many years of service in 2018.
& # 39; When I saw him, I thought: & # 39; Oh my god, he looks like my twin, & # 39; the truth is he has been an incredible partner and brother to me, & # 39; said Johnson.
In the touch clamp, Reed was speechless and broke into tears when Johnson unveiled the car.
& # 39; It was an honor and I want to say from the bottom of my heart that I love you and thank you and enjoy your new truck. & # 39;
Reed says the stress of work and & # 39; fear & # 39; stops him against the blows, torn muscles and broken bones.
& # 39; Fear keeps us alive, & # 39; said Reed. & # 39; People think we are daredevils, but daredevils hypnotize a big stunt and do it once.
& # 39; Stunt men and women have to do it over and over again.
& # 39; You need to prepare to enter that zone psychologically, get up and do it again. & # 39;
