Pat Robertson Reveals the Secret Behind How He Stays Fit: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-11-26 at 4.18.14 PM

On a segment related to exercise and ageing on today's 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson shared with his viewers his very own fitness "secret."

Said Robertson:

"A few years ago I did some pretty heavy stuff, I used to, my leg presses, warm up with 500 lbs. and I went up from there, I did 30 reps of 1,000 lbs."

Right Wing Watch reports that back in 2006, Robertson made similar outlandish claims that he could leg press 2,000 lbs even though he was 76 years old at the time and the current world record for that age is 1,335 lbs.

Robertson, as usual, remains blissfully unaware of any delusions of grandeur on his part.

  3. I thought his way of exercising was spewing hatred, pumping out vicious lies and counting money.

  4. I think perhaps he's confusing his workout with the lead weight between his ears.

  5. In Bible numbers, that's only 65 pounds.

  6. Further proof of his dementia.

  7. The old coot has been barmy for years. Any question he's asked is like a game of Dementia Roulette; there's no telling what he'll come out with next.

  8. @Caliban -- "Dementia Roulette"! LOL ... and just in time for the holidays! I have some relatives for whom it is soooo appropriate.

  9. He couldn't bend over to pick a quarter off the sidewalk, let alone do squats at the gym. LIAR!

  10. Mr. Robertson missed his calling as either a fiction writer or a comedian because what he is saying is pure FICTION!!!!

  13. Whatever muscles Patricia has was gained by lifting the sacks of diamonds and gemstones he brought back from the African continent in exchange for the poor work of fiction he distributed in the name of conversion.

    Got get those gems off the plane as soon as they return from the continent!!!!

  14. Pat, just because you painted two extra zeros on the 10 lb. weight doesn't really make it 1000.

  15. He is confusing pounds and ounces I think.

  16. He's a little disoriented, having just arrived back from 1988 in his DeLorean time machine after saving the US from the Cuban nuclear missile menace:

    No, wait, Kennedy prevented that in 1962... nevermind.

  17. And god (assuming you are brainwashed) cried!

    Posted by: ToThePoint | Nov 27, 2013 11:02:12 AM

  18. All this time I thought he was drinking the blood of small children.

  19. Some trainer in some bible gym is lying to him about what he's bench pressing.

    That or he's simply insane.

    I vote BOTH.

  20. Anyone else see shades of Kim Jung Il in this?

    Posted by: Scott | Nov 27, 2013 12:43:28 PM

  21. God will get your for that Walter! Seriously, don't make stuff up, you are going to make baby Jesus cry!

  22. It's possible that his trainer is lying to him, or he does not understand how the weight machine works. More likely is that he's trying to demonstrate that his piety results in better health and fitness. In his mind it's one of many white lies to help build up his flock.

  23. Hmmm I always figured it was the embalming fluid that kept him so limber.

  24. Given how these religious nuts scale some 13 billion years to 7 days, it isn't surprising that they may have trouble with numbers.

    Posted by: Bill | Nov 27, 2013 6:03:32 PM

  25. maybe he meant grams, the metric system can be difficult to deal with when they're used to imperial
