Locals Stunned By 79 Year Old’s Energetic Workout Routine

“..CCTV Video News Agency
Published on Jun 16, 2016
An elderly man in central China’s Henan Province has become an idol to many fitness enthusiasts for his energetic workout routines.

Zhang Zhuofu, a 79-year-old fitness fanatic in the city of Xuchang in Henan Province, can perform two-finger push-ups, lifting his body weight using only his thumbs and index fingers, and can complete between 40 to 50 push-ups in one go.

Zhang’s other amazing stunts include contortion exercises which show off his extreme physical flexibility, while another of his tricks includes holding his body parallel to the ground while grabbing onto a tree trunk.

“I’ve never seen it before. It’s astounding. He is 79 years old. I would never have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes,” said one impressed resident.

Zhang has performed his workout ritual for nearly 20 years, but says it took him six or seven years to master some of the more difficult stunts.

He said he had never fallen ill over the past two decades, and has dedicated his life to staying healthy.

“The most important thing for a person is not money but health and life. So we must keep fit,” said Zhang. More on: http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20160616…..”

73-Year-Old on the CrossFit Games Open: “I’m Doing It This Year!”
https://youtu.be/xUb6E81YQ6A
“Nancy Hoshaw survived a heart attack at 48 and breast cancer at 60. At 73, she’s entering the CrossFit Games Open, which kicked off Feb. 25. While some compete to be named Fittest on Earth, Hoshaw is competing with time and age—and she’s winning. After seeing decrepit women on a trip to Israel, Hoshaw decided a slow slide into a retirement home wasn’t for her. “My goal is to stay healthy and independent. I cherish my independence,” she says. Her coach at CrossFit Bay Area in Webster, Texas, is two-time CrossFit Games athlete Jordan Cook. Cook describes CrossFit as a lifestyle, noting how the community keeps people active and energized while they preserve and improve function. “The whole point of … functional fitness is not just to get better at fitness but to help us in our everyday life,” Cook explains. While Hoshaw was dead set against doing the Open last year, she’s all in for 2016. When Cook shared an Instagram video of Hoshaw preparing for the five-week competition about a month ago, she inspired people around the world and found more motivation herself. “I feel like I can encourage other people, but at the same time I’m encouraged myself,” she says. “It’s amazing the doors that you can open if you just … give it a try.” Video by Elliot and Lindsay Schrock.

World’s fittest 96-year-old, Charles Eugster, shares diet and exercise tips Apr. 22, 2016 at 3:37 PM Scott Stump TODAY today.com
‘….”Retirement is one of the worst things that you can do to yourself,” Eugster told TODAY from his home in Zurich, Switzerland. …

“We must do everything in our power to see that older people are healthy and productive because if we don’t do that we are facing enormous problems between pension liabilities and our health costs,” he said. “We should have retraining facilities for older people. You are throwing away the skills and expertise of people at 65, and that is absolutely ridiculous…

…Eugster also stresses that you’re never too old to get in shape. He didn’t start doing any serious weight training until he was 87, and he didn’t start running until he turned 95. ..

He began working out three days a week in a gym with a former Mr. Universe to put on muscle and also lost 24 pounds before he turned 88. Eugster is currently working with a trainer to get his “beach body” ready for summer despite a hamstring pull at a race on April 13. …”
