PRESIDENT BUSH: “FIT FOR DUTY”

At least that’s what his physical says, which was signed off on by Dallas’ own Kenneth Cooper. Click below for the gory details.

His resting pulse rate dropped to 47 beats per minute from 52. Well-trained athletes typically have resting pulse rate of between 40 and 60 beats per minute.

His body fat percentage fell to 15.79 from 18.25. It was 14.5 percent at his physical in August 2003.

A prostate screening test registered at 0.5. A desirable level is anything under 4.

Bush suffers from occasional reflux of stomach acid after drinking coffee or eating peppermint, two items that doctors recommended he reduce or eliminate from his diet.

He has a history of injuries related to physical activity, including scrapes and bruises when he has fallen from his bike. In July 2004, for instance, he escaped serious injury when he sailed over the handlebars during a ride at his Texas ranch. He fell this month and collided with a police officer when he took a spin on his bike in Scotland where he was attending an economic summit.
