The healthy balanced diet continues, I’m now 12 stone 5lbs, my upper body ‘tone’ is as good as it was 25 years ago when I was still playing squash and football regularly. Off on holiday next week wearing 34″ waist shorts and Medium T Shirts instead of squeezing into XL shorts and XXL shirts. Healthy diet & Body Pump has done it for me. The diet slimmed me down and BP has shaped me. I love the music & the class setting. In the gym I do a bit of this and that, concentrating on nothing in particular. Body Pump gives you a directed workout on all the major muscle groups in 1 hour, period. It’s up to you to use your brain and go online and check out the details. You have to use weights that challenge but don’t potentially injure you…….and FORM is crucial. If your instructor is on the ball they will contstantly point this out, that’s what they are cetificated to do. Women tend to go too low on weights, men too high. Instructors are not there to wet nurse you unless you’re paying personal trainer fees, you have to do some thinking for yourself if you want results and 10,000 gyms worldwide (allegedly) can’t all be wrong.
After a failed comeback bid, Ventura hosted his own talk segment on the WWF's Superstars of Wrestling called "The Body Shop", in much the same heel style as "Piper's Pit", though the setting was a mock gym (when Ventura was unavailable, "The Body Shop" was often hosted by Don Muraco ). He began to do color commentary on television for All-Star Wrestling , replacing Angelo Mosca , and later Superstars of Wrestling , initially alongside Vince McMahon and the semi-retired Sammartino, and then just with McMahon after Sammartino's departure from the WWF in early 1988. Ventura most notably co-hosted Saturday Night's Main Event with McMahon, the first six WrestleManias (five of which were alongside Gorilla Monsoon ), and most of the WWF's pay-per-views at the time with Monsoon, with the lone exception for Ventura being the first SummerSlam , in which Ventura served as the guest referee during the main event.
