What is the best age to go for professional sports or do something new in life? You think it’s your 20s or 30s. Well, think again! Ernestine Shepherd has just turned 80, and she became a bodybuilder being 56 years of age!
Presently this girl is the oldest female bodybuilder alive! She was born in 1936 and at that time, a woman could not even dream of becoming a professional bodybuilder or winning titles. This lady decided that the age is no real reason to hold her back from making her dream come true.
She won two titles in sports and entered the Book of Guinness Records as the oldest competitive bodybuilder both among men and women! How come this grandma bodybuilder runs 130+ km per week and sweats for hours in the gym instead of barely moving around with a stick? What’s her secret?
Well, she never gives up! She sticks with her diet, wakes up at 3 a.m. daily and runs, runs, runs! She also drinks up a lot of water and most of all, she stays happy with her life! You can do it, too. Just stick with what you love and believe in and be happy!
