How Arnold Schwarzenegger helps Hook maintain his form?

Senerchia, who goes by the ring name, Hook, opened up during an interview regarding the influence the Austrian Oak had on him. Moreover, the 23-year-old wrestler also mentioned one of Schwarzenneger’s fitness mantras, which he stated helped him build on his form.

Speaking to a prominent monthly men’s magazine, the young wrestler said, “I train mostly with a bodybuilding psychology. I base my workouts off of what I’m seeing in the mirror. Like Arnold said one time, you can carve yourself out of stone.”

Knowing to target the right muscle group is an impressive feat. And it seems that Hook has been doing just that.

“If you know how to pinpoint spots that you want to hit and build up, then you can start to develop a certain aesthetic and look for yourself,” added the wrestler.

When asked about his training regimen, Senerchia replies, “Six days a week, I’m in the weight room. Lifting. Cardio. I’m in there for a few hours. It’s my favorite part of the day. It’s therapeutic for me.”

Spending time at the gym help target the right muscles to improve their form. However, proper training pertaining to one’s sport is also paramount to function at the peak level. Keeping with this view, the wrestler added, “It’s difficult with travel sometimes but I also try and get in the ring two days a week.”
