Why Do You Train?

As we've said many times on this site....if there is a fountaini of youth, it is exercise and resistance training is the king. There are many different reasons for training and motivation is an individual thing. This guy has found something that works for him.....
Dr. Charles Eugster has a simple reason to stay in shape: for the ladies. "The idea is to turn the heads of the sexy young 70-year-old girls on the beach," the beyond-ripped 93-year-old says. That's why the former dentist works out for two hours at a time (pausing only to politely ask his fellow gym members if he can "add a few kilos" to their machines). Our new hero didn't turn to bodybuilding until he was 87, but after six years, he can bang 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."
