STREET FIGHTING MAN
This morning at Chelsea, the former five time WCW Heavyweight champion's main priority is making sure he's flexible for his match. With signature moves like the scissors kick and Spinerooni, dude has to stay limber. In addition to throwing down on free weights, he also bench presses. "My system is pyramiding," says Book, who credits getting into martial arts and breakdance battling as a teenager as influences on some of his in-ring moves. "I start bench pressing at a low weight, 135 pounds to 185, to 225, to 315 and pyramid my way back down. Eight to ten reps."
