Can you perform 57 dips, 61 chin-ups, 48 abdominal crunches and 50 push-ups? How about if you only had 45 seconds to complete each one? In an inspiring display of what the human body can do when properly nourished and challenged, a 93-year-old bodybuilder recently did just that during one of his many championship performances. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is that his strength actually surpasses many 20, 30, and 40 year old individuals whose body he describes as an ‘old car’ that hasn’t been taken care of.
At the age of 93, exercise enthusiast and bodybuilder Dr. Charles Eugster became passionate about improving his body only six years ago at age 87. Proving to the world that you really can change the way you feel at any point during your life, the retired dentist gets in 3 or 4 workouts per week. While he includes a significant amount of strength training to build and maintain muscle strength and mass, he also gets in around 150 minutes of aerobic activity such as fast walking or cycling every week.
