Dwayne Johnson has showcased his impressive thighs in his latest Instagram snap.

Actor Dwayne Johnson passed out on Tuesday night (29Dec15) after working so hard on his incredibly muscular thighs.

The former wrestler has always had an impressive physique thanks to his sporting career and work on action films including Hercules, The Scorpion King and G.I. Joe Retaliation.

Dwayne, 43, regularly keeps his fans up to date on his workout regime, posting pictures while at the gym on social media, and in his latest snap, the star wowed his followers with his incredibly muscular thighs, but admitted they came at a price.

"Tonight we trained 'the beefs' aka legs," he captioned the image on Instagram. "I passed out after we took this pic from holding my breath and trying to look cool. #IronParadise #ABeefyKindaJoint."

In the shot, Dwayne can be seen posing with his hands on his hips and his black shorts rolled up to show off his muscles.

With a black exercise top and a white towel over his shoulder, the star had clearly worked up a sweat.

Dwayne has successfully transitioned from his wrestler persona 'The Rock' to a bona fide Hollywood actor, and takes his preparation for a movie very seriously, switching up his workouts to best reflect the physicality of each character.

"For different roles my condition and training and diet does alter," he previously explained. "Depending on the role, it will really dictate the type of training I do. For Hercules, it was a 22-week diet, while for G.I. Joe: Retaliation it was about a 14-week diet, and for Pain & Gain I wanted to come out looking bulky, big, and dangerous, so we adjusted accordingly.

"For Hercules, I went for the demigod look: big and mean. When you're playing a character like the son of Zeus, you only get one shot. The intensity of the training was definitely up, as was the volume of training. I really wanted to make it the definitive version of Hercules."
