AJ Styles Talks About His Body At 40
WWE Champion A.J. Styles was recently interviewed by Men’s Health to hype Wrestlemania, and reveal how he stays in phenomenal shape at 40 with the rigorous WWE schedule.
WHAT SPECIFICALLY HAVE YOU HAD TO CHANGE ABOUT YOUR WORKOUTS AS YOU GET OLDER?
I’m not maxing out. Heavy weight is not that big of a deal for me anymore. I’m not out to get bigger. I’m out to maintain what I’ve got. Sometimes that’s doing a lot more reps, or doing heavy one week and light the next.
EVEN AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, CAN YOU EVER GET USED TO SOMETHING THE SIZE OF WRESTLEMANIA?
I really don’t think you can. It’s amazing what we do get used to. But WrestleMania being only once a year, it’s unbelievable to walk out in front of 100,000 people who just want to see you perform. It’s a special moment. That’s why there’s so many other guys in this business who maybe should have got out a while back, but it’s just hard to do when you’re walking down the aisle and there’s that many people with eyes on you.
