“Right now I'm on Warped Tour and it's the most insane tour I've been on. There are 80 plus bands, thousands of kids - it's chaotic. Everyday I try to work out, run and stretch when I wake up. It only takes up about 30-45 minutes but in the long run it's necessary. As a drummer playing in a fast, loud band, I need all the stamina I can get.
"It's all about using the right amount of energy at the right times. You need to breath and make sure you're not wasting all of your energy reserves in the first two songs because an hour later when you're //still// playing, you're going to be fatigued. Playing on a pad for about 45 minutes a day is something everybody should get into. It gets your hands and arms loosened up so when it's go time, and you're muscles and tendons won't tighten up and cramp.”
