Bush Called "Most Fit" President in History

Last night, Matt Drudge reported some interesting facts from President George W. Bush's latest physical that clearly make Bush the "most fit" president in history. The President's fitness is something I want to keep in mind because no one has more time commitments or things to worry about than the President of the United States, yet he has the time (or makes the time) to take care of himself.

Here are just a few of the stats:

  • Vitals:
    • Age: 59
    • Body Mass Index: 26.6
    • Resting heart rate while seated: 47 bpm
    • Resting blood pressure while seated: 110/64
  • Workouts include:
    • bicycling (15-20 miles, 15-18mph)
    • treadmill (low impact "hill-work"),
    • elliptical trainer,
    • free weight resistance training, and
    • stretching

If he can take the time to be this fit, so can I.
