Tom Jones turned 80 last June but the singer doesn’t look a day over 70. He does however, have a secret to his good health – and that’s hanging upside down like a bat. The Voice judge claimed that hanging upside down keeps him fit and healthy.
You put your feet in the thing and you flip and you hang
In a recent interview, he discussed the bizarre action known as “inversion therapy”, where individuals flip upside down on a special frame.
He said: “In 2030 I am going to be 90 years old.
“I hang upside down. You know on one of those frames.
“It’s great. You put your feet in the thing and you flip and you hang.”
The method is believed to help prevent back issues and tackles poor circulation, by shifting the body’s gravity and easing pressure off the back and spine.
Those with chronic lower back pain, poor circulation, sciatica and scoliosis can benefit from it but it has been noted by medical professionals that it could be risky for anyone with high blood pressure, heart disease or glaucoma and urge those to consult their GP before trying it out.
Despite his age, Tom has been in relatively good health following being admitted to hospital in 2018 with a bacterial infection, forcing him to cancel two concerts and the year before he had to cancel his US tour following medical advice.
He recently revealed he has received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine and felt “bulletproof”.
Appearing on The Graham Norton Show recently, the Welsh star told the host: “I’ve had the two and I’m now bulletproof!
“It’s a great feeling.”
He added that now he’s been totally vaccinated for the deadly illness, he was looking forward to getting back to doing live shows but was hit with the sudden realisation that crowded gigs won’t be taking place any time soon.
Tom said: “I thought, ‘I’ll be able to go out and do some live shows now,’ but then I thought, ‘You’ve got to have an audience for that!’
“If they haven’t had the jab, what’s the point.”

Instead, he keeps the music alive but performing for an audience of one.
“I sing around the house; I sing even when I don’t get paid for it!” he chuckled.
“I love to sing; I really do and any chance I have to get up and sing I will.”
Now feeling on top of the world, the She’s A Lady vocalist revealed he’s also taken up boxing and enrolled with a personal trainer.
“I’ve got a trainer who comes to see me. A lot of stretching and boxing thrown in. It’s a good cardiovascular workout,” he continued to explain in his recent interview with The Sun.
Tom added that cutting down on alcohol has done wonders for his body appearance.
“Just wine with dinner – a pint of beer once in a while. I try to watch my diet too,” he grinned.
“I’ve got a 12-pack. But health is very important and that’s a lot of luck.”
He added: “You’ve got to take care of yourself.”
