On the latest edition of The New Day’s Feel The Power Podcast, Big E opened up about a potential heart issue caused by working out – known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
He said: “We do these EKGs and physicals every year. I was told that all the years of exertion from working out thickens the walls of your heart. So despite losing a lot of weight, doing more cardio and being very clean lately, I have a thicker heart wall because I’ve been working out seriously since I was 12, but even before that, I was working out at 9 or 10. I was told it’s not a massive worry, but something to keep an eye on.”
