    Default Eddie's fitness level

    Not sure if this has ever been seriously discussed but does anyone know if Ed ever worked out when he was younger, under 30?

    I've been always amazed at how cut and defined he is. With Roth you already knew by his stage moves and offstage hobbies he was into fitness activities. But Ed was never just some skinny guy like Angus or a malnourished Page. You can't attribute it to alcohol and drugs, both are bad for you and would show up somehow, but jesus fuck Ed must've had less than 10% body fat percentage plus a super defined 6 pack as well as every other muscle. I can see genes being part of it but did he really never hit the weights?

    Its genetics. If you look at Al after he stopped drinking he's cut and ripped too and looks like he put some time in in the weight room.

    Al's son and Ed's nephew is a national class runner. If you watch what Ed was able to do on stage there's no question that he's also got some athletic gifts as well.

    unfortunately for Wolf it seems that he got the majority of mom's genes.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Al has said after he got sober he got into swimming and eating a lot of fish, both excellent things for your health.

    So, this is where we are at now.....
    Ed being white and his, "Genes"

    Got it.

    On a related note, someone with the name, "Gene", got involved with the band and helped cut a demo tape. Odd, I know......

    Coke burns body fat like crazy (what I've been told, never tried it...lol). Smoking and drugs cake kill your appetite.

    This might be a hippa violation.

    Gary turned him onto an aerobic workout which stimulates the largest muscle in humans. The gluteous maximus.
