Seth Rollins believes that Crossfit benefits wrestlers more than normal workouts

Seth Rollins spoke with Mens Journal about using CrossFit, how it benefits wrestlers and more. Check out the highlights:

On whether CrossFit benefits wrestlers more than normal workouts:

“That could be the truth, yes. The only experience I have to go off is what I do. I know the New Orleans Saints have started to use CrossFit a little bit. For me, it’s tailored specifically for what we do. The intensity level is constant and high, and there’s variables you can’t foresee in our in-ring action. And having to work at a high level while you’re under duress is something we’re accustomed to, so training like that really helps us. It carries over very well into the ring.”

On CrossFit making workouts more fun:

“I would say so. Before I discovered CrossFit, I was really just doing regular bodybuilding, didn’t understand athletic training and movements. I didn’t even know how to squat, necessarily. I just knew I wanted to get bigger and train for a pump and all that stuff, but I found myself getting hurt a lot, and it was boring. Once I found CrossFit, I started to enjoy fitness, and once my body adapted and I started to become more mobile, it was a game changer as far as injuries were concerned. So it definitely has become a passion of mine. I enjoy being in the gym and sweating and watching other people push themselves. It’s nice to have two different passions instead of focusing all your energy on one.”
