Ouch. That looked like it hurt.

After suffering an injury while working out in his Iron Paradise gym, Dwayne Johnson shared a video of the wound with his social media followers. The clip, posted to Instagram on Monday, Oct. 26, showed The Rock with a line of blood down his face from a cut near his eye. However, the 48-year-old actor didn't seem too concerned about the mark.

"All right look: Sometimes, well often times, things get a little intense here in the Iron Paradise, but we ain't playing Tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes. All right?" he said. "You get lumped up every once in a while, and things happen." 

Taking his finger, Johnson then wiped it over the blood and stuck it in his mouth so he could taste it.

"That's good," he added. "That's real good. Back to work."

So, what kind of workout was he doing that led to such an injury? The Jumanji star shared he had been throwing around his 50-pound chains for a drop set when he got "lumped up."

He said he even needed stitches after suffering the blow. Although, he insisted on finishing his workout first.

"Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later—rules of the house," Johnson wrote on the social network. "And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce."

He then encouraged his followers to have a productive week. "Keep it light and a lil' fun," he noted, "but get after it like a MF."
