If you’re a Georgia fan and you miss the gym, there may not be a better follow on Twitter than Herschel Walker.
The greatest football player in UGA history is going to start providing exercise tips that people can do from home, Walker tweeted out on Sunday evening.
There’s probably not many better people on Earth to give that type of instruction on home workouts than Walker – even if you’re not a Bulldogs fan. If you remember, Herschel famously built his Greek-godlike physique while doing thousands of push-ups and sit-ups from home every day.
Here was Walker’s message while sitting on an exercise bike on Sunday:
“This is Herschel Walker. Hey, let me tell you – I know there’s some tough times out there. But tough times make tough people. So over the next couple of days, I’m going to give you some exercise tips. Tips you can do at home. (I know) you can’t go to a gym … well, I never went to a gym. I know all of you (are looking at this video) and say, ‘Hey, you’re on an exercise bike.’ And you’re right. But I grew up in the country. You don’t need a gym. I’m going to teach you some things you can do at home, off the couch. Or at home, on the floor. The way I worked out when I was growing up.
“(Also) I’m going to tell you to continue to pray. Pray for whatever belief you have. I love the Lord Jesus. So I am going to ask Jesus to bless this country, my family, the leaders, and this world — because it’s going to get tougher. But we will overcome this. I’m also going to give you some CDC tips. Some things … that keep you healthy, people around you healthy, and we’re going to overcome this.”
Back to Walker’s legendary workouts: They are built around three main things: Push-ups, sit-ups and sprints. It all started when Walker was a short and chubby kid, and got bullied at school. Walker approached a track coach after sixth grade for advice on how to get bigger and stronger, and the rest of history (you can read about it here).
Walker reportedly still does more than 3,000 push-ups per day at the age of 58 years old. He certainly still retains a chiseled physique that makes him look decades younger.
This past January, ESPN named Herschel at the No. 2 all-time greatest player in college football history, trailing only former Syracuse standout Jim Brown.
