The Jumanji star shared he had been throwing around his 50-pound chains for a drop set when he got "lumped up".

The "Hobbs and Shaw" actor then wipes blood from his temple onto his finger and tastes it.

We ain't playin' tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes - it's called the #IronParadise for a reason and things get extremely intense.

The 48-year-old star displayed a cut to his face, which he sustained after things got "intense" throughout a heavy training session and he mistakenly struck himself with a set of heavy chains - but he declined to look for medical attention up until he 'd completed the exercise. While he needed stitches, "The Rock" chose to taste his own blood first and film an entertaining video for Instagram. "You get lumped up every once in a while and things happen", he said before he took a swipe at the blood and tasted it.

"Happy Birthday @atajohnson aka Mama Rock", Johnson wrote in the caption. "We go down this unpredictable road of life and we never know what's around the corner - so we do our best to treat every day for what it is - a true blessing".

He said in September, "This has been one of the most challenging and hard things we have ever had to endure as a family".
