Forget all the politics and whether or not you agree with him as a choice for VP (…really?), Paul Ryan has one unavoidable strength: the strength in his muscles.
We mean, what could we expect from a former personal trainer?
He's 6'2", 163 lbs., and about 6% body fat. The dude is FIT, even if you don't think he's fit for political duty!
"I'm kind of a workout guy. I've always been into it. [Former Mich. Rep.] Bart Stupak and I lead [P90X classes] — there's about a dozen of us that do it. It works because it hits your body in many different ways: pull-ups, sit-ups, lots of cardio, karate, jump training, yoga. It pushes your body…and gets you out of your plateau."
His personal health priorities are admirable, we have to admit.
If you don't know what P90X is, it's basically a really great way to make yourself work so hard that you throw up!
It uses a form of exercise called "muscle confusion," and is notorious for being extremely tough!
