12. Randy Orton
Weight: 250 pounds
Orton, who recently turned 35, follows a classic three-day-a-week training program where each day he devotes himself to one body area. Day one is chest, shoulders, triceps; two is legs; and day three is back and biceps. (Sometimes he turns it into a five-day-a-week workout, splitting it up between shoulders, chest, triceps/biceps, back, and legs.) He has a very exact workout routine, doing three different exercises for each body part and five different leg exercises. During his workouts he does three to five sets of each move, making sure the last set he goes to failure. And to keep things fresh, he changes the moves every few weeks.
Room for Improvement: “This is definitely a bodybuilding/gym rat hybrid of a routine, which will get him strong and looking good, but he needs to do something a little more sport specific,” says Jeff Butterworth, owner of Rx Strength Training in Somerville, Massachusetts. “He can do an overhead press, but if he swapped that out and instead picked up an oddly shaped heavy rock and moved that around, his stamina and his strength would be up.”Back to top
