"That's another reason why guys like Ryback to Titus [O'Neil] are doing the workouts all the time and it makes a huge difference. Kane, Santino -- they can't use pills. We used to take painkillers. Hey, the s--t hurt! [Laughs.] How do you get out there? I was the last guy to do any kind of yoga. Period. I was messing around with the young guys in the back and I say, 'You know what stretching used to be?' Then I act like I'm smoking a cigarette and putting it out. That's stretching."
On the number of wrestlers using DDP Yoga: "Yeah, they're doing it. I was talking to Alex last night and he goes, 'Dude, I'll pay for it.' I go, 'No. I don't want any of the boys to pay for the workout. I want to just give it to you as long as you're going to do it.' 'Oh, I'll do it. I'll talk about it tonight.' I go, 'No. I want you to actually do it and then tweet about it because I don't need PR. I just want people to know what you're going through. On Twitter, @DDPYoga or @RealDDP -- it's intense, man. There's been 100's of people tweeting about the workout and right now, I've got a 30 day challenge. Do it for 30 straight days. I've got all different kinds for 10 minutes, some for 25. So, having these guys doing it, they're going to be on WWE online. They've already filmed a bunch of the guys. So, it's really cool.
"The one thing is that it's going to get a better resurgence again because I'm going to get the wrestlers to start tweeting again. I showed them Arthur's before and after photos but they've never seen the video -- you've seen the video, right (posted below)? He lost 140 pounds and he went from knee braces, back brace and canes to none of that s--t and running. That was 5 years ago. I'll give you an example (of how it works): on Monday, next week, Arthur and I will be at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina with the Marines -- the baddest dudes of all the f--king dudes. The ones they drop out in the middle of f--king nowhere. I do my inspiration talk about how I started doing this workout. It's inspirational. I started my career at 35, I was done by 40. Then I talk about people I started to help. Now, I show Arthur. Then, I show the video and at the end of the video, I go, 'Gentleman, please welcome Arthur.' He'll say something, then I come back out and I say, 'I hope you boys brought your A game today because we brought ours.'
"I could make this the easiest workout ever. Obviously, if he can do it. But were coming to do the bad ass workout. I want to make Lt. Colonel who's said to me, 'If these guys like your workout like I do, it'll become part of the curriculum. That's a huge goal of mine, getting it in the military."
