    Awesome! This is the stuff that makes me happy! Makes me think there is hope for me too.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

          Color me inspired. What a cool story. I find it kind of funny and kind of depressing how, as Dr. Eugster puts it, "people have been brainwashed to think that after you're 65, you're finished." It's sad but true for a lot of people.

              Drat, no place to leave comments on that article. I wanted to give him a big high-five, and also to give a thumbs-up to his trainer's opinion about working on the flat butt. Nothing says "old age" to me like flat, wasted-away glutes.

                      LMAO! There's a Sex & the City episode where one of the girls is seriously considering dating and sleeping with an elderly man for his money & connections, but decides she can't have a relationship with someone with an old-man butt.
                      Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                      If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                        I always wince when I see one of those scrawny little old ladies with no butt trying to look hot by wearing tight leggings as pants. Equating skinniness with sexiness is a hard habit to break, I guess. At least the men aren't wearing tight pants! On the contrary, they usually have the over-sized pants with the waist-line hiked up to their nipples.

                          That man is epic!

                          Until Mark's recent post about old age, I hadn't thought about the possibility of being fit and healthy at an old age. I feel so much more positive about growing old and still being healthy and mobile, and this man confirms it.

                            Wow I love so many things about this article, some great quotes:

                            Then, at last year's event in Germany, I triumphed, scoring higher than any contestant in any age category for my 57 dips, 61 chin-ups, 50 push-ups and 48 abdominal crunches, each in 45 seconds. As I'm over 70, they did make allowances – I could do the push-ups on my knees, for example – but I proved I wasn't past it.
                            WHAT?! Even with “bad” form (half-reps) those are great numbers!!

                            I'm not a particularly talented sportsman, but I've always been a great trier.
                            Everything I learned was tailored to help my body cope with old age. I took up judo to teach me how to fall properly. My circulation and posture improved, and I was told that there was a chance more muscle mass could protect my brain from Alzheimer's. I stopped thinking about dying. As I approached 90, my focus was on getting my body back.
                            To me, a 65-year-old is young. I turn 92 this year. It is a frightening prospect – the law of averages is against me, and, yes, one day something will happen and that will be it. But until that day comes, I'm going to carry on working on my abs.
                            This man is awesome.
                            I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
