"I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and Samoan) hot sauce," the actor joked on Instagram.

Dwayne Johnson goes hardcore with his workouts — so much so that when he draws blood, he says he stitches up only after he's done.

The actor on Monday posted an Instagram video that shows a nasty gash on his face from getting hit while throwing around 50-pound chains. He stopped just long enough to document the moment and joke about what his blood tasted like.

"It ain’t called #HaikuPoetryParadise, it's called the #IronParadise for a reason and things get extremely intense," he wrote with the video. "Throwing around 50lb chains for a drop set, until failure and sometimes you get lumped up and need stitches. Taste your own blood, keep working out and stitch up later - rules of the house. And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and Samoan) hot sauce. Have a productive week, my friends - keep it light and a lil’ fun, but get after it like a MF."

The video had only been live for 30 minutes and already gained more than two million views. Johnson has accumulated more than 201 million followers on Instagram alone.

The hulking Johnson often posts pictures and videos of his intense workouts — but Monday's post definitely stood out as going to a whole other level.
