No One Has to Get Their Period Anymore

  No One Has to Get Their Period Anymore Menstruating is painful, expensive, and … unnecessary?Saintly qualifications aside, amenorrhea—the abnormal absence of periods—has historically been linked with misfortune. In 400 B.C., Hippocrates wrote that “when the menses are stopped, diseases from the uterus take place.” In 1652, the physician Nicolas Fontanus identified amenorrhea “as the most universal and most usual cause” for palsy, melancholy, burning fevers, nausea, headaches, and a distaste for meat.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is famous for his intense workouts and epic meals. So when it came to their latest challenge video, YouTubers Jujimufu and Tom Boyden figured it was time to try out Johnson's cod diet, in addition to taking on his grueling shoulder workout—all in the space of three hours.

Johnson's daily food intake famously includes 36 ounces of cod, in addition to a plethora of other meats and veggies; Juji and Tom focus on the cod portion of the diet, dividing up the protein-rich fish into an 18-ounce pre-workout meal and 18-ounce post-workout meal.

They prepare the first meal in an air-fryer, seasoning the fish with lemon and black pepper. Each dish amounts to 418 calories, and 91 grams of protein. "This is really easy to eat," says Juji. "This is awesome, I love cod."

After polishing off over a pound of cod each, they head to the gym, where they follow Johnson's shoulder workout. The routine includes 3 to 5 sets of 10 to 15 seated dumbbell overhead press, front raises, lateral raises, bent-over lateral raises, followed by 3 to 4 sets of 20 to 25 more lateral raises, 3 to 4 sets of 8 to 10 barbell shrugs, and finally 3 to 4 sets of 10 t 12 heavy dumbbell shrugs.

"It's really not that many calories," says Tom. "There's no fat, so it's not bad."
