The WWE Performance Center got a #PitShark machine today. It is a #GameChanger. Worked up to 1,000 lbs for a set of 8 with my bro @fla_hayes. After regular squats, we used the #PitShark for lunges and sumo squats before continuing on with the workout. 1 hour of stretching today, 2 hours in the ring, then 2 hours in the gym. 5 hours of work at the PC today! Now at the @improvorlando with the fam then a 2 hour deep tissue massage after. Busy day as always! #NoOffDays #cantstopwontstop #nosleep #mojorawley #power #speed #mojorawley #strength #SDLive #StayHYPED #Smackdown #WWE #NoExcuses #JustResults
