I mean, what do you consider to be 'functional training'? You talk a big game but you haven't given me my workout routine that Rory does.
I don't know, is this unconventional?-

IIRC, Rory turned pro as a lightweight at 16.

He didn't move up to 170 until he was something like 17-18.

I don't know that his extreme size and weight gain occurred as a result of steroids... Maybe it happened because he was still growing?
