Even Dwayne Johnson feels like there's "always room for improvements" when it comes to his body, but for now, he's where he wants to be for "Hobbs & Shaw."

Johnson teased early this month that Elba's character would bring "the showdown of all showdowns," meaning Johnson should be in top physical form for the role. On Oct. 21, the former WWE wrestler proclaimed that he had officially "hit the mark."
In an Instagram post, Johnson described himself as "260lbs of attitude [and] classy cuss words." He also told fans that he'd put in 18 weeks following a "disciplined diet" and doing "intense" training. Here are the results:

The action flick is in production now and is slated to open July 26.
