A Thousand Sit-ups and Push-ups a Day

Great WSJ article about golf legend Gary Player's fitness regimen. At age 75, he does a thousand push-ups and sit-ups a day—the sit-ups with a hundred-pound weight on his chest. He eats a mostly vegetarian diet and explains why. Pretty inspiring stuff—here.

In his early golf days, Mr. Player says most pros, himself included, didn't think twice about their diet. For the last six years, Mr. Player has followed a mostly vegetarian diet. He says he has much more energy since he's cut out meat. Mr. Player believes that the future of fitness lies in what people eat much more than how active they are. "Nutritionists will be the new trainers." he says. "Diet is 70% of the fitness puzzle."
