Generation Iron Triple H Chest and Back Workout

The Triple H chest workout for power.

Paul Michael Levesque, better known as Triple H, is the future of professional wrestling. Like his contemporaries The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin,Triple H has been integral in maintaining the popularity of professional wrestling through the late 90’s and 2000’s. Originally billed as Hunter Hearst Helmsley, the prolific entertainer has proven to build one of the most impressive chest and back routines in the WWE’s history.

As impressive as his stage presence and acting is, his athletic prowess should also be heavily commended. You can’t fly through the air, crash into the ground, and be hit by steel chairs without having some above average athleticism. The wrestling star wasn’t all that ripped when he first exploded onto the scene, but since then has steadily packed on mass and muscle. Now he’s more ripped than he’s ever been and we’re guessing some muscle maturity is to blame for his increased definition. In particular the wrestler’s chest and back are well built and defined. If you want your physique to look the same as Triple H then check out his chest and back workout.
