There is no doubting that Roman Reigns is one of the fittest wrestlers in the WWE. Sure, it helps that he comes from pretty impressive genes (his dad was half of the Wild Samoans tag team and The Rock, Rikishi and the Usos are all his cousins). However, he also works at it and in a recent conversation with Mens Journal Roman gave a few tips to help us all stay in shape. Here are some excerpts from said interview:
1: Go Straight To The Gym: "It's really just mental fortitude. Once you get in [the gym] and start moving around and sweating, it's like, "Oh, thank god I did this. I feel so much better."
2: Embrace Lots Of Cardio: "f I get in the ring with a 215-pounder, I wanna be able to keep up with him agility-wise. I take that back to my football days of being a large athlete that could move."
3: Always Mix Up Your Workouts: "it's on the individual to know what's right and change things up. Your body’s a machine and adapt to whatever you’re doing. Stick to one thing doesn't sound right to me."
4: And CrossTrain With The Family: "it's on the individual to know what's right and change things up. Your body’s a machine and adapt to whatever you’re doing. Stick to one thing doesn't sound right to me."
5: Don't Forget The Static Work: "I've seen stretching workouts and isolated stuff, more core work and those static movements. You can do beneficial things without sweating. And if you're really serious, sometimes a workout is the recover day."
6: Stretching Too: "Typically, I would go after a workout, but my routine's a bit different. That's just my first workout. I'm gonna wrestle later on, so that'll be my second workout. So I would stretch before my match, but I would stretch after my workout."
7: Recovery Is Key: "It's tough, but there are few different things you can do. We have all types of compression underwear and tights you can wear to help with swelling to get your legs back under you."
