The New Yorker magazine put together a slideshow of historical exercise photos. The bizarre line-up includes this underwater ping pong match (being observed by a sand shark at the marine studios in Orlando, Florida, 1947), playing golf in medieval armour and making the bed on one leg. See the full slideshow here.
