Greg Norman’s Latest Workouts Reveal How To Stay Ripped In Your 60s

Chomp through life like The Shark.

Greg Norman’s latest workout routine proves middle-age doesn’t have to come with a rig as sloppy as your putting. To the contrary: The Shark’s transition from young buck to casually ripped 64-year-old proves that – even though you might not have the ‘bulk’ of your twenties – there’s no reason to let yourself go in your 50s or even your 60s.

Greg Norman’s experimental fitness attitude (the Sydney Morning Herald once likened him to Gwyneth Paltrow) also reveals the secret to maintaining your muscles while your compatriots revert to walking frames: avoiding activities that stress your body, even if they are the ones you love. For Greg that has meant giving up golf (or at least, playing less than once a month), and finding new outlets which work your body (and break down cartilage in areas that haven’t been rubbed raw for the first 50 years of your life).

As the recent (and highly varied) workouts on the Australian golf legend’s Instagram page attest, this could involve anything from wobble board exercises (with battle ropes)…

The golf legend, who earned more than $1 million five times on the U.S PGA tour and was the first person in history to surpass $10 million in career earnings, mastered the art of classic Aussie charm (and attacking life) before Chris Hemsworth was even a ~thing~, and made a name for himself by looking stylishly masculine, as well as, of course, his insane golf achievements.

This attitude has kept him more shredded than most young bucks into his late fifties and sixties (he turns 65 on the 10th of February next year) – something which has prompted his fans to make such comments (below the Instagram posts of his workouts) as, “My pops wants your doctors number,” and, “Thank god for the gains.”

“Inspirational.”

    You left out the part about daily testosterone hormone replacement therapy, which is the primary reason why you see so many “beefcake daddy” baby boomers these days. I’m sure Norman’s endocrinologist is very proud.
