Last hard session with NXT Champion @samoajoe_wwe before his tour of Japan and Australia. Working on some HIIT training or as we like to call it S.H.I.T. training. Joe has some of the best cardio I've ever seen on a man his size. Unreal! @Ifbbbenpak #mi40 @sportsmuscledoc #samoajoe #nxt #wwe #prowrestling #zerotoherolife #joshrafftraining #sportsmuscletechnology #sportsmuscletraining #fitfam #goals
