Bobby Lashley’s impressive physique is only a welcome addition to his unbelievable talent. Aside from being a collegiate wrestler and star athlete in the armed forces, Lashley’s also an experienced mixed martial artist.

In a special report conducted by Train, a fitness magazine/website, Bobby Lashley revealed his workout routine.

“I view strength training not just as physical fitness, but a direct link to my fight conditioning. You have to train with the fight in mind. You can’t just randomly lift weights. Your strength training is conditioning–it can’t be separate. My trainer is very good at pushing my limits, allowing me to create more stop and go power. That’s what you need.”

While it is amazing that Lashley is the WWE Champion, one can’t help but wonder how much longer can he perform. At 44, Lashley needs to work much harder to maintain his physique, while going through the regular wear and tear wrestlers suffer.

A special report by Muscle and Fitness revealed the seven reasons Bobby Lashley still looks like a God. The reasons are: setting your goals high, choose a lifestyle rather than a ‘diet’, surround yourself with like-minded people, the gym is no catwalk, always be ready, start the day the right way and recovery is a priority.
