Joe Biden's Current Health Status Revealed

President Joe Biden is healthy and in good shape, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. During a White House press briefing on Monday, Psaki was asked about Biden's physical fitness and personal workout regimen (via Twitter). While she did not go into too many specifics, Psaki assured reporters that the president is physically fit and in good health. "I can tell you, having traveled with him a fair amount, sometimes he's hard to keep up with," she said during the press briefing.

The reporter's question was prompted by a recent report from The Washington Post, which revealed that Biden follows a daily fitness routine. According to the report, the president lifts weights every morning and frequently works with a personal trainer. Although he used to ride a Peloton exercise bike prior to his inauguration, it is unknown whether or not he still uses the interactive stationary bike at the White House.

Joe Biden's past medical assessment

While he was still on the campaign trail in 2019, Joe Biden's campaign released an extensive medical assessment of his health. Conducted and written by Biden's personal physician Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the summary concluded that Biden was healthy and fit to perform the duties of the presidency (via NBC News). The report revealed that Biden is prescribed acid reflux and cholesterol medications, as well as blood thinners and something for seasonal allergies. His doctor partially attributed his good health to working out five days per week.

Decades ago, Biden had two brain aneurysms, one of which did not rupture, as well as a pulmonary embolism, or a blood clot in the lungs, and deep vein thrombosis. Although Biden experienced these serious medical conditions, O'Connor noted that there were no serious threats to his health at the time the assessment was published. And according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, he appears to have remained in good health since (via Twitter).
