Exiled Philippine leader Ferdinand Marcos makes workout video

HONOLULU -- Exiled Philippine leader Ferdinand Marcos has made a 10-minute workout video in which he is seen working up a sweat while jogging in place, shadow boxing, and lifting dumbells. He also takes the opportunity to denounce his successor.

The video, made in Marcos's hillside Honolulu home and dated Dec. 30, 1986, was broadcast Wednesday on KGMB television in Honolulu. It was supposed to have gone to loyalists in Marcos's homeland, but was intercepted in Manila and sent back, officials at the station said.

The 69-year-old former Philippine ruler also appears wearing sweat pants and a military camouflage jacket while sparring with an imaginary boxing partner.

In another shot, Marcos strips to the waist as the camera zooms in on his naked chest. Marcos proceeds to lift dumbells with his chest muscles jumping.

He also gives a 20-minute address while standing alone in his living room, denouncing the administration of Philippine President Corazon Aquino, who replaced him in a civilian-backed military coup on Feb. 25.
