If we can prevent some illnesses and wearing down of our bodies just by USING them - and we CAN - then why not? There are no rules on when you get old you can't work out or run, paddle, ski, wheel, bike, or whatever you want to do....
this book (and the next one in the series) is awesome for that motivational push!
If they can, I can...and if I can...you can!
This book; more than all the books I had on bodybuilding including those by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Pearl and Mike Mentzer; help me to joyfully resolve to stay fit at least into my 80's and maybe beyond.
My favorite story was about an 81 year-old grandmother who won a power lifting contest for 45-50 year-old men because there were no women in her age group to compete against.
I am not surprised to see that it has become so prized and expensive to purchase.
It is well-worth the price for the beauty and vitality it will inspire you to achieve and maintain:)!!Growing Old Is Not for Sissies: Portraits of Senior Athletes (Bk. 1)
