When The Big Show broke into the scene of WWE about a decade ago, no professional wrestler at that time was quite build like him. The Big Show was and still is a combination of power house and height with 7-feet tall and over 500.
Things has changed now a days a lot because The Big Show has lost a lot of weight, he is still recognizable by his height and face but the guy has a freaking 6 pack now. Amazing!
To achieve this amazing transformation The Big Show has teamed up with celebrity trainer Dodd Romero. Romero has been known for working with A-list celebrities Denzel Washington and Alex Rodriquez. The Big Show went through series of activities like swimming, cycling, and weight training.
Recently The Big Show has talked about his transformation in interview to WWE.com,
“It was definitely a conscious decision. You don’t make the transformation I’ve made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training. I wanted to make a change, and I was given the time and opportunity to make a change, so I took advantage of it. I’ve worked a hard schedule for 22 years. Five days a week, 200-plus days a year on the road. With that time off, it was a chance for me to re-evaluate what I want to do with my future, what I want to do with myself, and really take this challenge on and see if I could make a change.”
The best part about this whole transformation is that he dropped 60 pounds, but he still a big due and to covert his old weight into muscles is just amazing.

“Right now, mostly, everything I count on is high-rep. I’m not trying to build muscle right now, I’m trying to keep my metabolism up, keep my tendons strong, keep my joints good, and cut a lot of fat.
“We’ll get to the muscle-building end of it once I get my body fat down to where I want it to be. … Those who weight-train know what I’m talking about. Lower reps with heavier weight will be more for building muscle. Right now we’re just trying to burn it up and keep it high-energy so the fat doesn’t have a chance to stick and grow.”
The man was once dubbed the “world’s largest athlete,” so this sure is one drastic change.
