John Cena did a couple amateur bodybuilding shows before becoming a pro wrestler. Do you think he could. John Cena isn't as strong as he looks. He's stronger. Working alongside longtime friend and trainer Rob MacIntyre, Cena has shifted away from the bodybuilding training he grew up with to focus more on pure strength gains—allowing him to keep aesthetic muscles while improving his athleticism and resistance to injury.
We all know John Cena for his reign as the world's most famous professional wrestler and for his starring roles in various films. You can tell that he lifts just by looking at him, it's obvious, but not everybody knows that he used to be a serious competitive bodybuilder back in the day. To promote his role in the new Tina Fey/Amy Poehler comedy "Sisters," WWE time champion John Cena went on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Tuesday night, which Cena pointed out is his first appearance on the show since Fallon took over. Always game to have some fun on the late-night.
