Circular breathing champion Kenny G has trained his body like a machine. Every part of him serves a purpose. His lungs? Sustaining the world’s longest E-flat note just to say that he could.

But what about Kenny G’s hands? The Grammy Award-winning artist finally let the world know on Saturday.

Yep, it’s true! Kenny G can only use his bike with his legs. His hands are strictly reserved for playing sax. Imagine all the things you use your hands for. Kenny G can’t do any of that shit unless it involves making sweet, sweet music on his saxophone.

Fellow Twitter users seeking a higher purpose for their hands found inspiration in the tweet, turning Kenny G’s ridiculous humblebrag about having decent core muscles and the balance to bike handsfree into a meme.

Kenny G’s tweet, of course, negates all the times he’s been seen doing other things with his hands that have nothing to do with music. Truly 2016 has changed him. Forget the charity golf tournaments, all the times he’s embraced someone, and whenever he’s dropped anything on the ground. From here on out, his hands are going nowhere near that shit.

As of this writing, Kenny G has yet to tweet what his feet are for.
