79 Year Old Bodybuilder Ernestine Shepherd is still going strong and she is most likely the world's oldest female bodybuilder!
She started bodybuilding with her sister Mildred at age 56 because she thought they could get a world record. Her sister died though and Ernestine kept on going! Eventually she did get a world record for the oldest female bodybuilder still competing!

I say to my senior ladies and my men, age is but a number, and you can get fit.





Ernestine Shepard:
I wake up at 2:30 every morning. I say my devotions, I eat 10 egg whites … 16 ounces of water, and a handful of walnuts.

I am glad that she is keeping herself spry by lifting weights and dieting, it really is an ispiration. She got started at a really young age though so I wonder what she would look like if she started in her twenties.

Well way to go for this guy. I am less than half of his age and I cannot help but think that he is probably in better shape than I am in. I wish I had the dedication and the motivation to stay on top of my routine that well, and for all of those years, but clearly I am just missing something. Or maybe he just has something special, or maybe a little bit of both, which is probably the case. Either way, congrats to him and it is very impressive, and inspirational. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not trying to be a dick by any means but did you read it all, this is a female.
