Terry Eugene Bollea (born August 11, 1953), better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American retired professional wrestler and television personality.
We found that over time, Hogans diet moved from steroids and junk food to eating healthy and consistent exercise every day. He also will tell you that a nice glass of wine and a healthy amount of chocolate are big parts of his diet.
In the early days, the Hulkster was pushing protein shakes and vitamins like seen here:
Hogan was pushing 330 pounds during his wrestling days. Looking back, he would tell you that steroids and junk food were big parts of the weight and regimen back then.
According to this episode of “Ask Hogan” back in 2011, Hogan had moved down from 330 pounds to “only 285” pounds.
But in 2011, he eats “everything” and just makes sure not to eat at night.
A few years later in 2015 and at the age of 61, Hogan hits the gym with his wife, Jennifer, every day. “[I] come down to the gym for an hour and a half every day, use light weights and try to be consistent with eating good food,” he says. “Every once in a while, I’m addicted to chocolate, and I’ll go off on a binge.”

From his home in Florida, he takes “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” on a tour of his personal gym. “This is the garage gym that’s a 120 degrees all day long,” he says in the above video.
Hogan says staying fit boils down to three things. “Come down to the gym for an hour and a half every day, use light weights and try to be consistent with eating good food,” he says.
The key word is try, Hogan adds. “Every once in a while, I’m addicted to chocolate, and I’ll go off on a binge,” he admits.
As for his workout routine, Hogan likes to keep it simple — you won’t find the latest fitness fads or high-tech trends in his home gym. “I stick to the basics,” he says. “The leg extensions, the leg curls, dumbbells, the crossover machines.”
Wife Jennifer McDaniel says Hogan’s favorite workout is anything that has to do with bulking up his arms. “I call mine the little garden snakes, his are the pythons,” she says. “So I can do like, 20 pounds on the Preacher Curl, and I think he does 120.”
After dabbling in everything from wrestling to reality TV to music, Hogan has good reason for keeping up appearances at the gym. “Well throughout the years, I’ve said, ‘Big arms, big paychecks,’ so I spend a lot of time here,” he says.
