He probably hopped off ten seconds later and called it a day.

I've heard some stories about Gary Player and his "fitness" routines…

If he were a real runner he would know how to use his arms properly

At his age I doubt anything works properly anymore.

I figured no need for a new thread - here is Gary Player doing a back flip off a boat

(also, Iacas - care to share those fitness stories?)

That is probably the truth. His workouts are flakely. I am surprised he still functions at this age with those crazy exercises.

I hope I can run on a treadmill at Gary Player's age.

Yea, he’s in his 80s I think.  At that age, he’s very functional... I hope I’m able to attempt flips off a boat when I’m that old (or at least be capable, I have no desire to do that even today haha)

Of course he’s not impressive compared to a 30 year old

He can kick my butt on the golf course. How many times can he bench press his bodyweight?

Gary Player weighs about 75 Kg. Barbell bench press 165 lbs?

I am 59 years of age, 5'8" 185 lbs. I can barbell bench press my bodyweight 12 times

I doubt I can press my body weight, just means I need to lose weight :-P
