Looking for some motivation to finally get off your butt and get in shape?
Well if a 93-year-old from Britain can’t motivate you to better yourself, nothing well.
Dr. Charles Eugster is being called a medical marvel
The eldery body builder began weightlifting six years ago as a way to get the attention of younger women in their 70s.
“The idea is to turn the heads of the sexy young 70-year-old girls on the beach,” Eugster told BBC News. ”I’m extremely vain. I noticed I was getting fat.”
According to the Inquisitr, the retired dentist even hired a former Mr. Universe to aid his training.. After six years, he has a daily routine comprised of more than two hours, where he can put out more than 60 pullups and 50 pushups at a time.
“I am of the opinion that no age is too old,” he says. “Aging has become an enormous pleasure, a delight, a joy.”
Most seniors anywhere near 93-year-old are advised to avoid strenous activity like weight lifting. Anyone interested in following a similar routine should consult with a doctor.
“[Eugster] is unusual and there is a small minority of the population that can undertake that sort of vigorous activity into their 90s, but that’s not true of most of us,” said professor of primary senior care Steve Iliffe, according to thepostgame.com. “Within reason it is never too late to start exercising, but you do have to remember there is a difference between exercise and physical activity.”
