Did Nicholas lift weights?
« on: May 24, 2015, 01:00:21 PM »
I read that Nicholas was quite well built and had a solid physique. Pictures show him to be quite muscular and I was wondering what his exercise regime may have been. I know he enjoyed walks but did he do any other exercise besides that? Or any resistance training?

He had a chin-up bar in his bathroom at the Alexander Palace. He took it with him into exile.
