By , December 3rd, 2015 | Bulking up, Celebrities | 3 Comments

John Felix Anthony Cena, born in April 1977, is a WWE professional wrestler who has been signed to the organization since 2005. The 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion works very hard in the gym with his fitness trainer and friend Rob MacIntyre not just to gain pure strength but also improve his athleticism.

Cena was not a strong and muscular guy when he attended school. In high school, he weighed only 120 lbs. At 18, he started bodybuilding and working out at the gym vigorously, gaining substantial muscle mass and weight.

Even though Cena has a punchline “You can’t see me”, his magnificent physique is hard to ignore. The secret to his amazing body is the set of challenging exercises that he does 5 days a week. These workouts are so vigorous that they can only be taken upon by professional bodybuilders and wrestlers. The 24-time professional wrestling champion is guided by his coach and trainer Rob, who helps him in the gym do these exercises better. The WWE superstar has now shifted away from his original muscle development training, focusing on keeping aesthetic muscles as well as increasing endurance and resistance to pain.
