Excessive exercise is making some celebrities look gross — or foolish, the Times is reporting.

Madonna’s veiny arms and Elle Macpherson’s “saggy knees” are the result of too much exercise, as well as French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s recent collapse during a run, the Times says.


Experts say that excessive exercise doesn’t make you look better and can, in fact, be harmful to your health by diminishing muscle mass and increasing fatigue.

This is indeed timely, important and relevant information. I’m going to go out right now and make sure that I don’t engage in too much exercise. Now, where’s my remote?

There’s something to think about in this report, because Madonna’s arms are looking really sinewy these days. If she were any more sinewy, she could moonlight as a wacky waving inflatable arm-flailing tube man, er, woman.
