Read an Excerpt
Whenever I'm out in public, there are two questions people always ask me. How did I get to where I am in the wrestling business, and what tips can I give them on working out?
To some, the questions may seem unrelated, but for me, they cannot be separated. Becoming a serious weight lifter as a teenager prepared me both physically and mentally to fulfill my dream of becoming a professional wrestler.
Weight training transformed me from a hundred-and-thirty-five-pound beanpole to someone who was entering bodybuilding competitions a few years later. It taught me how to set goals and remain focused on my quest to achieve them. It gave me self-confidence.
Many of the relationships that introduced me to the world of professional wrestling had their roots in the gym. And once I was in the wrestling business, my dedication to weight training and the lessons I learned through it helped me overcome challenges and continually shoot my career to the next level.
This book isn't an exact blueprint on how to turn yourself into a twohundred-sixty-pound World Heavyweight Champion.
This is a workout book that will give you training tips, exercise examples, and information on nutrition and eating properly, all designed to put you on the road to an improved physique and a healthier lifestyle.
It's the story of how a kid from New Hampshire worked himself to the top of the professional wrestling industry.
Most importantly, this book explains how working out led to my professional success.
Whether you're trying to become the best player on your high school football team, live a healthier lifestyle, look good at the beach, or just want to give yourself a better shot with the babe down the block, I believe a dedication to weight training will provide the structure to help you achieve your goals.
It certainly did for me.
