Elon Musk says he doesn’t like working out but needs to do it anyway — just days after the barrel-chested billionaire’s father criticized his son for “eating badly.”
“I gotta work out and be in better shape,” Musk said. “I actually don’t really like working out, but I gotta do it.”
Musk said that his current morning routine consists of waking up at 9 or 9:30 a.m., then looking at his phone. He called it a “terrible habit” and said he wants to work out instead.
“I’m gonna switch from looking at my phone first thing when I wake up to working out for at least 20 minutes then looking at my phone,” Musk said in an episode of the Full Send podcast released late Thursday.
The Tesla CEO’s candid comments came days after his father, eccentric South African engineer Errol Musk, said he was not proud of his son and wanted him to take diet pills to lose weight.
