    ...Donald Trump Thinks Exercise Is Fake News ...



    It's no secret that President Donald Trump doesn't get much exercise. During his presidential campaign, he told TV host Dr. Oz ― in a rather surreal episode of television that obscured the fact that he never actually released his medical records ― that he got his workouts by waving his hands and arms during his campaign rallies. But according to a new piece by Evan Osnos in The New Yorker, the president actually has a radically odd perspective on fitness and human health. Basically, Trump doesn't exercise because he believes it's bad for your health to do so.
    Noting that Trump's height and weight were reported during the campaign as 6 feet 3 inches and 236 pounds, respectively, Osnos wrote that Trump regards the human body as being like a battery with a limited supply of juice. And exercise, therefore, is little more than a fast-track to the grave.

    Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn't work out. When he learned that John O'Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, "You are going to die young because of this."
    This is far from the first time Trump has advanced an interesting theory regarding health. During the campaign, when his diet came under scrutiny, he offered up a defense by insisting to CNN's Anderson Cooper that places like McDonald's offered safer food than could be found in traditional restaurants:

    ''One bad hamburger, you can destroy McDonald's. One bad hamburger, you take Wendy's and all these other places and they?re out of business. I'm a very clean person. I like cleanliness, and I think you're better off going there than maybe someplace that you have no idea where the food's coming from. It's a certain standard'' quote from Trump..

    Matt wenning, ed coan & Fred Hatfield have all expressed a similar opinion. I've recently heard them in various podcasts say, "you only have so many true max lifts in your body. You only have so many heartbeats." Now if u choose to blow them all at once, go for it. If you choose to save them, then u might live longer.
    This guy knew he was going to die young, since his dad didn't live past 30, so he chose to go out with a bang...

    To the contrary point, many studies explain muscle mass as one of the prime predictor of longevity in healthy men. So if u have a body the genetically hold more muscle mass then you may live longer than someone who doesn't... regardless of muscle mass.
    So, Trump isn't crazy for his opinion. There are many scientists& great lifters that share a similar opinion... it's more about the individual.
