    Is this for real?

    OK....I consider myself to be pretty darn physically fit, but I can't even budge myself from this position and Jack looks like he could do about 50 of these.

    Unreal.

    Re: Is this for real?

    Jack Lalanne is "da man". He would do all kinds of stuff like this, such as swimming the English Channel pulling 6 boats, etc..

    And I see that he is still with us. Born in 1914 and still doing feats of fitness.

    Amazing.

    Re: Is this for real?

    It's for real. I grew up when that program was on. It was scary watching my mother try to do some of the workouts.

    That was a flashback - b&w TV on a small screen. We had Jack LaLanne, Jacque Costeau, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, and the Sunday Disney movie of the week.

    Re: Is this for real?

    I want to see Jack LaLane and Gary Player in a cage match... Or maybe a scaled down 'World's Strongest Man' competition.

    Jack would kick Gary's behind. No question in my mind.

    Sunday Disney movie of the week brings back so many memories. Good stuff.

    Disagree...I think it comes from the shoulders. When I try it, I can feel that my body WANTS to move (abs tighten, shoulders strain, etc.), but I still don't move.

    Try it yourself.

    Warms the heart, doesn't it? That doesn't even factor in the shows like "Leave it to Beaver" and "Gilligan's Island". Never was much of a "Brady Bunch" fan though.

    But Mary Ann. Even as a little boy.....
