In a conversation with Adam Glyn of Adam's Apple, John Cena talked about his current fitness regime. “Fitness has been a part of my life since I was 13. I don’t change for a profession, I change for the time.
I’m older, so I’ve got to stretch a little bit more, I’ve got to warm up a little bit more, I’ve got to rest a little bit more. Recovery, it’s a thing,” he said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc.
“It’s more just trying to maintain strength. I am 45 now, I try to stay as strong as I can I try to move as much as I can. So, strength compound movements, Olympic lifts, and a smattering of narcissistic showmanship curls here and there.
But if you follow my training, it’s kind of been the same for the last 20 years”.
John Cena in the ring
John Cena has not been in the ring since 2021, so he talked about his future. “I know in WWE years, I turn 20 pretty soon, so that’s a big thing from a pretty storied class of folks.
Batista, Randy Orton, Brock, we kind of all turn 20 this year. I am aware that is coming around the corner and who knows,” he said. “But it is one of those hard truths to bare, there’s a lot of cool stuff going on and I don’t want to say no to any of these opportunities that are on my doorstep.
I don’t know when I will be back, but hopefully, it is soon. I’ve been gone for too long”. He stressed that people should not be afraid of failure. “Be okay with failing, this ‘transition’ has taken 15 years now from The Marine onto now.
There’s a lot of failure in there, you guys have watched,” John Cena said. “Don’t be afraid to fail and it’s okay to have a great support system around you, certainly the WWE audience. I’ve said on multiple occasions and I will keep saying it until I have the chance: they made me the man that I am today”.
