Ernestine Shepherd defies nearly every physical stereotype for an 80-year-old woman. For one thing, she’s ripped.In fact, she’s a record-holding bodybuilder who spends more than 30 hours each week exercising.
But get this: she didn’t so much as pick up a dumbbell until she was in her 50s! Now she’s training other women and completely embodying her nickname, “Granny Six-Pack.”
Now the female bodybuilder has celebrated her 80th birthday and has no plans on slowing down when it comes to keeping fit.
She wakes up at 3am, she runs about 80 miles (130km) per week and she lives off a calorie-controlled diet of boiled egg whites, chicken, vegetables, and plenty of water.
