WWE Superstar Sheamus aka The Celtic Warrior here… What can I say about Tommaso Ciampa? The man is walking talking inspiration story, with all of the stumbling blocks put in his way as he climbed through the ranks of world wrestling, he never ever gave up. He’s just about injured every part of his body, and his latest neck problem involved some of the most serious surgery imaginable. Yet, he’s still fighting and after the workout we did in his home in Orlando surrounded by his dogs & even a new baby, I know he’ll be back in a WWE ring stronger than ever and more determined to reach the top.
At his home gym, Tommaso put me through a rigorous warm-up and stretching routine before 3 rounds of Push-Pull sets with the emphasis always being about getting slowly stronger bit-by-bit while protecting his neck. That’s why he calls his workout regime Baby Steps and why he must the most perfect representative of… Brave Change.
