The 74-year-old grandmother, Ernestine Shepherd, is a regular on the Musclemania circuit, and her achievements has made her one of the featured record holders in the forthcoming 2012 Guinness World Records book, due out in September.
Suffering from depression, high blood pressure and acid reflux, Shepherd began working out 20 years ago and hasn’t looked back since that time.
The 5-foot-5, 130-pound grandmother wakes up at 3 a.m. every morning, and runs 10 miles a day, before hitting the gym for pushups, pull-ups and a heavy regimen of free weights.
“I feel younger now than I did 20 years ago,” Shepherd told AOL Weird News, at BookExpo America 2011 in New York City’s Jacob K Javits Centre this week.
