David grew up idolizing the great physiques of 1980’s action stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. While accompanying his mother on shopping trips, David would sneak off and read all of the muscle magazines he could, including “Muscle & Fitness” and “Flex.” During high school, David started working out daily in his basement on an old “Weider” weight bench. It didn’t take long for David to notice changes in his body. He continued to work out, all through high school, college, and even as a student at Harvard Law School. David was so passionate about working out that he went so far as to sneak a full squat rack and weight bench into his tiny Harvard dorm room; which was strictly against dorm policies.
Following graduation from Harvard Law School, David became more active in bodybuilding and fitness. He struck up a friendship with Eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman and started attending the major bodybuilding competitions. During David’s WWE career, he has become known for his impressive physique, earning him a top spot (#6) on WWE’s list of the Greatest Physiques Of All Time. David has been featured in countless fitness magazines and fulfilled a childhood dream by gracing the cover of the December 2013 issue of “Muscle & Fitness.”
