Her neck & face resemble a 20 year old! And her husband of 56 years is so cute and her biggest fan. Any time I look at myself in the mirror and wonder if I ever will make it to my goal, I think of Ernestine. She has won the Guinness World Record for bodybuilding and runs 10K every morn when she is training for a marathon. Truly inspirational!

What happened was that the 56-year-old version of Ernestine went bathing suit shopping with her sister, Velvet. While trying on the suits, they found themselves laughing at each other. Then and there they knew it was time to get in better shape. Ernestine and her sister joined a gym and started working out together. A short time later, Velvet died suddenly from a brain aneurysm. Devastated, Ernestine stopped going to the gym. After some months of mourning the loss of her sister and on the advice of a friend that her sister would have wanted her to continue what they had started, Ernestine returned to the gym with a reignited determination to get fit.

Starting slowly and building her body step by little step, Ernestine over time completely transformed not only her body, but her life, too. She has never been happier. She trains mostly senior women five days a week and “live(s) to inspire senior women to reach their physical potential.”

Personally, she likes to compete in 5K and 10K races and run marathons. She’s up at 4 A.M. to get in her 10-mile runs and puts in upwards to 80 miles a week when training for an upcoming marathon. Ernestine also strength trains four or more days a week. In 2007 (at age 71) she asked Yohnnie Shambourger (former Mr. Universe) to train her to compete as a bodybuilder. Seven months later she entered her first bodybuilding competition. In this first contest she took first place in her class at the Natural East Coast Tournament of Champions bodybuilding competition – out posing women decades younger.

Despite all the exercise, Ernestine says that she has no aches or pains whatsoever and has never been injured — not at all — in the 17 years of her new improved life. This 5-foot 5-inch, 130-pound dynamo sports 9 to 10% bodyfat; these single-digit percentages are usually reserved for elite-professional male athletes in their prime! She takes no medications. She loves her new life’s work, enjoys more energy than those decades younger and has never been more successful. What’s her secret? Let’s look at some of what allows Ernestine to defy “normal” aging:

Ernestine is my inspiration and hope she can help you to see that we are never too old. She was 73 when she began body building.

One more suggestion, if you have never tried Kettlebells, they are wonderful for the torso and arms. Very easy. I keep one at the office and take mini breaks just for my arms. One word, start w/ 5 or 10 lbs and work up. I enjoy walking/jogging with arm weights and have been doing so for years. Callanetics arm exercises, so simple and easy to do anywhere.
Wow, just watched the youtube footage of her and that's incredible!

Thanks a lot Sunday, for the inspirational story and links! Gives us all a hope!
P.S. My DH and the beauticians I go to for waxing, say that the scars they see from arm/thigh tuck surgeries are awful!
