As those of you who keep up on the workout routines of author/philosopher/risk expert/scholar/and consigliere to Socrates know, Nassim Nicholas Taleb's physique is in no way a product of randomness. In the past, he has discussed the intense diet and exercise regimen he practices to keep his bod in chiseled Adonis shape ("I lift stones and do weightlifting. I don’t go to the doctor except when I’m very ill, and when I go to India, I drink a drop of local water...[I] avoid fruit that does not have an ancient Greek or Hebrew name and drink no liquid that has not been in existence for at least 1,000 years.") But until recently, we've only been able to picture in our minds what it might look like to watch NNT engage in a series of deadlifts. Then, on Saturday, everything changed.
Could this be the first step in a series of steps that culminate in Taleb releasing workout video entitled Squatting with the Gods? Obviously we're all hoping and praying the answer is YES.
