Anthony Kiedis Fitness Workout

Anthony Kiedis

He represents the new paradigm of the anti-geezer, middle-age-defying rock god. He’s super buff, held up as the model of healthy living by Men’s Fitness magazine, and has said he loves defying the idea of how society conventionally sees you at 40, 50, and 60. He has said

“Discovering surfing at this stage of my life is definitely going to keep me active till the day I die. So, yeah, I accept the challenge… In the same way that [the late American exercise and nutritional guru] Jack LaLanne did—doing things in his 70’s that no man on earth could do: pulling tugboats across the San Francisco Bay with his teeth.” Anthony kiedis

This type of attitude towards fitness is a far cry from when he was interviewed with his band in the 1980’s when he claimed the only exercise he got was sex! Today, he combines surfing with swimming in chlorine-free pools, long jogs with his dog in the Hollywood Hills, drinking a lot of water in the morning, acupuncture, dinner before 6, and a mostly vegan diet (although he eats sustainable fish). He has said of his previously hard-partying ways:

“I spent most of my life looking for the quick fix and the deep kick. I shot drugs under freeway off-ramps with Mexican gang-bangers and in thousand-dollar-a-day hotel suites. Now I sip vitamin-infused water and seek out wild, as opposed to farm-raised, salmon.”
