“DDP Yoga is great,” Zack Ryder told WWE.com. “I supplement the program with my regular workout at the gym. Sometimes I like to do it before I hit the gym and other times I like to do the ‘Red Hot Core’ system of the program right after.”

Though he’s already in the top physical condition required of a WWE Superstar, the Long Island Iced-Z has noticed improvements in and out of the ring when it comes to performance, endurance and working out.

“It’s definitely helped my flexibility, which is really important,” the former United States Champion said. “DDP Yoga has helped create a higher level of impact when I jump up and hit that Rough Ryder, as well as some of my other moves.

“DDP is such a positive and motivational guy … that really helps when you’re going through the workouts on DVD,” Ryder added about the former WCW Champion.

Though they’re already being motivated by their new manager, A.W., The Prime Time Players have also employed the workout routine as part of their fitness regimen. Former Arena Football player Titus O’Neil offered a unique perspective on using DDP Yoga.

“I’ve done pretty much every workout you can imagine in my experience as a basketball and football player,” O’Neil told WWE.com. “DDP Yoga is more beneficial to me because there is a lot more movement involved. My biggest issue has never been strength – it’s flexibility, and this program has definitely helped with that.

“I used to do yoga when I played football,” O’Neil added. “But DDP’s system is unlike anything I’ve ever tried. It’s different and has everything – core, stability, strength, endurance … it’s very beneficial.”

O’Neil also introduced DDP Yoga to his tag team partner Darren Young, who told WWE.com that he never pictured himself doing yoga, but changed his mind after experiencing the benefits of the program.

“Like Titus, DDP Yoga has helped with my movements in the ring, but it’s also really helped me lose a lot of body fat and tone my physique,” he said. “DDP’s DVD is great, and I’ll use it any day of the week.”

Though Ryder and The Prime Time Players are relatively young Superstars who have employed the program to improved performance, two Superstars with many more years of experience have also enjoyed success after embracing the regimen in their lives.
