Bill Goldberg Workout
Bill Goldberg was one of the most dominating wrestlers of all-time. He is famous for holding the record for the largest undefeated winning streak in professional wrestling at 173 wins. He is the first man to hold both the WCW and WWE incarnations of the Big Gold Belt. He retired from wrestling in 2004 and switched into acting. He starred in hit movie Universal Soldier 2 w/ Jean Claude Van Damme and is currently hosting a television show Garage Mahal on the DIY Network.
Goldberg is so dedicated to his training regimen that he built a 2,500 square foot gym above his garage and he gets in there at 5:30 AM. Rather than the intense heavy lifting that sported him an NFL and WWE body, he now performs maintenance-type routines when it comes to his workout training routine. Goldberg performs explosive movements such as Olympic snatches, deadlifts, and squats but uses much less weight now than he did. "I can get the same workout in with 80 lb. dumbbells now", Goldberg says in referring to his 400 pound bench press days. Goldberg is big on muscular confusion and goes into the gym with a new plan every day. in addition to weights, Goldberg performs kickboxing and does a lot of stretching. Goldberg says "a longer muscle is a stronger muscle".
Goldberg liked to switch around his workouts on a daily basis which helped
shock his muscles to new growth.
Goldberg's diet is high in protein and low in fat. He eats 12 egg whites and one yolk for breakfast along with half a pound of turkey bacon. To burn fat throughout the day, he has half a pot of coffee a day. He drinks up to 15 bottles of water a day and always makes sure to get a good night's sleep. If he doesn't get in enough sleep, then he makes sure to take naps throughout the day.
Our Take: It's important to switch around your routines and bring variety. The fact that Goldberg goes to the gym with a new plan every day is an effective way to pack on the muscle. Your body adapts to a stimulus placed on it. For example, if you do dips every single week, your body will be so used to that movement that it won't stimulate it enough. It's good to switch it up. Also, form should always take precedent over weight. Goldberg recognizes that he can get the same type of workout with less weight, so long as he focuses on squeezing the muscle and really keeping his form paramount.
