A 74-YEAR-OLD woman living in the United States was recognized as the oldest female bodybuilder by the Guinness Book of World Records, the Daily Mail reported on Sunday.
Ernestine Shepherd has 'six-pack' abs which look unbelievable at her age and tries to motivate other people to lead healthy lives as she teaches at a Baltimore fitness center.
"If you try to motivate people, you have to live this party," said Shepherd, who has kept a tight training schedule and diet for 18 years.
He wakes up at 3:00 every morning to meditate and short 16 km at a local park before lunch. She avoids sweets and maintains a fairly strict diet of brown rice, chicken breasts, vegetables and a glass of raw egg three times a day.
She said in an interview that he was "couch potato" was until I was 56. Since then, he ran nine marathons and has won two bodybuilding contests.
