Sting (Wrestler)

Sting born in Omaha

20 Mar, 1959

Sting is born in Omaha, Nebraska despite being billed from Venice Beach, California during his wrestling career. Sting develops an early interest in body building.

I never did the powerlifting thing, but the goal was to lift heavy. Four plates squatting for reps – 4-5, 8-10, 315 for 20, 225 for 50 – leg extensions, leg curls and that’s how we trained every single week. On the bench , my best was 435 – I was younger and I was on the gas, too. There were guys who weighed a lot less than I did who could easily do that. But I didn’t really train for power or strength. I trained for size. That’s all I was training for.
