8. Triple H
Weight: 255 pounds
At 45, Triple H is older than most of his peers, but he’s also in some of the best shape thanks to functional training. His body was once so beat from years of wrestling that it took him 15 minutes just to get out of bed in the morning and walk straight. Now he can perform a 40-inch box jump. He makes sure to take on lots of mobility and agility work and doesn’t get stuck in any one workout routine (although when he works out varies just as much, with 1AM workouts as common as those at the crack of dawn). To cap it off, he does a lot of the usual strength training, like deadlifts, to be able to survive in the ring. His diet isn’t all that different from a lot of other Superstars in that he eats six times a day and tries to make his meals mostly veggies, meat, fruit, a starch and lots and lots of water.
Room for Improvement: “He actually is doing a lot of the right things,” says Butterworth. “A lot of older athletes turn to functional training and even yoga to help keep their bodies from breaking down as fast. Ideally he wouldn’t want to train so late since rest is really important, but if he has to every now and then that’s okay.”Back to top
