What is the most you have ever bench pressed?
Five hundred fifty pounds. Even though right now I feel like I’m good for between 560 and 580, 550 is my official best.

How important is strength training to a WWE Superstar?
Strength training is pivotal in my performance. It’s extremely important. At the same time, remaining healthy is also a priority. With all the power moves that I do in the ring — moves that you don’t see a lot of guys do today — it is extremely important for me to keep my strength as high as possible, while keeping my health the same level.

Who is the most impressive bench presser you have witnessed in person?
Myself. I’m thoroughly impressed with myself each and every day that I wake up.

What’s the best way for a person to increase his max bench press?
You gotta train heavy. Set goals for yourself and then each and every week slowly chip away at it until you reach your goal and don't stop. So if my goal is to bench press 580 pounds and I’m at 550, I’m going to try to better that number every week and try to go 555, 560, 565 until I get to 580. You might have some weeks that you’re stronger than others, but your goal is to keep moving forward.
