The Body Builder Shephard is 76

Super Granny Series #7

I forgot to mention one more person in this series : Ernestine Shepherd.   She is a 76-year-old body builder.

According to Mail Online,  she was a ‘couch potato’ until she was 56 years old.    It seems you can gain muscle mass at any age.    Now she is an instructor at a sport club.   I heard of her two years ago.   Her news encouraged me to work out.   But I trained too hard and pulled my calf muscle(>_<)    After that, I didn’t feel like using any training machines  for a while,  but this month I started out again.   Yeah!    My muscle tone has decreased a lot during this period.   The slate is wiped clean now.

By the way, the current Guinness holder for  the oldest female bodybuilding is another person, Edith Wilma Connor who is 77 years old (might be 78)  She is American too.  She started body building in her 60s.   Such articles make me feel like I shouldn’t waste my time. I’m gonna exercise now!  (I’m not intending to become a body builder-just a healty person)
