Erick Rowan was interviewed by Fitness Informant to talk about health and fitness. Below are a couple of highlights:
The strongest wrestler in WWE:
"Big E is a beast. I used to think I was strong but this guy has a way of humbling you. Imagine doing reps on bench with three plates on each side and you're feeling great. Big E asks if you're finished. You say, 'sure, want anything off?' He goes, 'No leave it,' then adds another 45 to each side for a warm-up. HUMBLED."
Wrestler physiques changing since the 80s:
"In those days there was no wellness policy. It's about long-term fitness and health. I want to be able to play with my grandkids and have no pain.
"Wresting is not about looks anymore. But being on the road 300+ days a year you have to be in-shape. Mentally and physically. You don't have to be a bodybuilder but take respect in how you look, and it will improve the way you feel."
Rowan also discussed his workout, staying in shape while on the road and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
