Troy Dumais : I work out about 8-12 hours a day. I have about 4 ½ to 5 hours of water work, and that means that's the actual diving percentage of my workout. Then 3 to 6 more hours per se, depending on the day, is plyometric jumping, weights, ab workouts, stretching workouts. If I have a feeling I need to stretch a little bit more, I stretch another 10-15 minutes to 1 hour. Athletics, it's a job and I enjoy doing it, so whatever it takes.

: I try to find a quiet place. I try to get my mind and completely blank it out and just relax and control my breathing and just understand that, you know what, all your practice and hard work is culminating to this point so enjoy the moment. Once I settle down and I'm breathing a little bit more regularly, just like a normal person walking or sitting down or watching TV, I'll put some music on. Depending on how I'm feeling at that time it might be a little faster than other times, but whatever it takes to get me going.
