If you had to choose your ultimate workout partner, who would it be? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson or Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Both men are known for going hard in the gym and having a ripped body to prove it. From The Rock’s intense workouts and epic meals to Schwarzenegger’s extreme bodybuilding, even some celebrities are hoping for a chance to workout with them.

Nick Cannon, Jay Pharoah, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, A$AP Ferg, and Big Sean made their pick for The Rock. On the other hand Jared Padalecki, Kip Moore, Kumail Nanjiani, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Charlie Puth, and Austin Mahone are all on board for a workout with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Being picked as the ultimate workout partner has to be flattering. And Schwarzenegger, best known for his roles in movies like The Terminator or Total Recall, says it’s really all about having inspiration and being an inspiration.

“It is important to inspire others. I recognise that I did not get to where I am today without the inspiration of so many people,” said Schwarzenegger. “For me, it’s important to hang on that wall [as Mr. Olympia] and have other people look up there and say, ‘Look at what that guy has accomplished.’ If you want to work out, come on down. We’ll have a good time.”

But if you’re not able to hit the gym with him anytime soon, at least you can check out his diet and workout routine to learn a few tips.
