Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor revealed how quarantine during the pandemic helped him get into better shape in an interview with Kerrang! in addition to setting himself a new goal when it comes to quitting addictions.
As you might know, Corey Taylor had to go through a double knee surgery back on May 10, 2019, as he revealed via a picture from the operating room on his official Instagram page.
Taylor is not a stranger to major surgeries since he had spinal surgery back in 2016, after being aware of the fact that he had basically broken his neck years earlier without realizing the serious situation.
During a recent interview, Corey Taylor revealed that lockdowns and restrictions have been beneficial to him in terms of health and fitness. Taylor stated that he is stronger now that one and a half years have passed since his surgery and he managed to improve his body during the coronavirus pandemic.
Here is what Corey Taylor stated about his current health status:
“As my legs have gotten stronger after my knee surgery I’ve been able to work out more, I’m lifting weights, I’m running 5k every day, so I am trying to stay healthy and stay ready for when everything kicks back. I am actually in better shape than I was before lockdown – I have been able to take advantage of that.”
In addition to his current health status, Corey Taylor also revealed that after achieving his goal when it comes to quitting his bad habits such as drinking, drugs, and smoking, he now wants to quit sugar since he is extremely addicted to consuming sugar. However, he added that quitting sugar has been one of the hardest things to really let go of since there is always sugary food around due to his kids.
Here is what Taylor revealed about his goal in the new year:
“That’s my resolution – to try and get back to zero. I’ll tell you what: it’s been the one thing that’s been the hardest for me to really let go of. I’ve quit smoking, I’ve quit drinking, I’ve quit drugs; I’ve quit all that stuff. But this is the one that’s kind of hanging around.
Maybe it’s because I’m surrounded by it because I have kids – it makes it a little tougher. Plus my sweet tooth is also just so ridiculous: I once filled a red Solo cup with peanut butter and a half bag of M&Ms and ate it like it was a bowl of cereal… this is the kind of person you’re dealing with. I’m not amateur – I’m a professional fat-ass!”
