93yearoldbodybuilder 245x153 93 Year Old Bodybuilder Beats Others Decades Younger (Video)Can you perform 57 dips, 61 chin-ups, 48 abdominal crunches and 50 push-ups? How about if you only had 45 seconds to complete each one? In an inspiring display of what the human body can do when properly nourished and challenged, a 93-year-old bodybuilder recently did just that during one of his many championship performances. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is that his strength actually surpasses many 20, 30, and 40 year old individuals whose body he describes as an ‘old car’ that hasn’t been taken care of.

At the age of 93, exercise enthusiast and bodybuilder Dr. Charles Eugster became passionate about improving his body only six years ago at age 87. Proving to the world that you really can change the way you feel at any point during your life, the retired dentist gets in 3 or 4 workouts per week. While he includes a significant amount of strength training to build and maintain muscle strength and mass, he also gets in around 150 minutes of aerobic activity such as fast walking or cycling every week.

And it all started when Dr. Eugster decided that he wanted to change his body image. Plainly stating that he was ‘getting fat’ and wanted to do something about it, he hit the gym and hired a professional personal trainer to get him started.

Since then he has won several world titles thanks to his activities and has even gained a few rowing medals. Once a competitive rower in his younger years, Eugster was forced to put away his athletic life in favor of putting in extra time at his dental practice. Time he now seeks to regain through his training.

But is Eugster a rare case, a genetic super human with tendons of steel? Dr. Eugster will be the first to admit that absolutely anyone can decide to change their body and commit to a routine. In his words, it’s like trading in an old car for a new one. If you have maintained your used vehicles properly through oil changes, tune ups, and so on, then you will receive a larger amount for trading it in. In the event that you have treated your used car badly, you will receive a lower price. In the end, it’s varying degrees of difficult to get that new shiny car.

But you don’t have to workout for hours in the gym to make a difference when it comes to your physique and overall health. Even brisk walking can slash your risk of heart disease, stroke, and extend your life. As Dr. Eugster states, anyone can do it.

    Hello, I am a 75-yr-old woman doing pretty well, vegetarian for 25 years, vegan for some of those years,a walker, yoga student and qi gong exerciser (but I admit, need to do more of those activities). This article and the Natural Society site inspire me to do more. When I went through the tsa at the airport, nobody would believe I was 75 and thereby exempt from taking off my shoes and jacket, lol. They were so impressed with me. That was an unforgettable moment. Thank you for this great and inspiring website naturalsociety.com

    I did 150 pushups yesterday during a CrossFit training session, I'm a 78 yo female! Yes, I take supplements and yes, I ate Halloween candy (just a little).

    Thank-you for this, Anthony—this man is SUCH a major inspiration—and for me,at just the right time,too! "Form follows function" has never been more exemplified—-He made a decision-a choice—and he BECAME IT…..He is a wonderful reminder of our ability as humans to effect change! Great article—-M.A.

  • joyce

    so if you have a low income you're in the oven, all those supplements are quite pricey.

      Having a "CAN'T DO" attitude is also damaging and toxic to your health as much as anything else!…….

    I would add to the list the following:

    Vitamine C – especially L-ascorbine;

    Vitamine B17 – ask your doctor about it and he will make a face, saying that he never heard of it – you can find it in natural form, just look for it in the Internet;

    Omega 3;

    Magnesium with vitamin B6

    Multi vitamin B complex, especially in natural form such as yeast;

    Minerals;

    All the above plus healty diet full of fresh fruit and vegetable, lots of groats, little sugar, little fat and you may live almost forever. I also do not eat meat but if you cannot part with it, you may try to eat only seafood.

    I have not seen a doctor for 10 years since I have lived such life style.

    Cheers.

    Adam from Warsaw, Poland.

    Hey 'ed the grocer'!

    Would you explain what you mean by 'etc,'? This is to inquire if you have a listing of those chemicals specifically? Personally I categorize in terms of eight parameters, but I'm curious if you might share a little more definition of terms…

    Blessings!

    Although I am 74 and suffered many heart attacks and continual angina over 20 years, walking like death warmed up.It wasn't untill I threw away all drugs, stopped eating denatured refined and processed food threw away started taking high potency supplements, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, stopped going to the Doctor I turned my whole life around. I have never been as healthy as I am now.To make sure I remain free of the flu, colds and any sort of infections I take liposomal Vit C, Vit D3 and colloidal Silver when neccessary and have not been ill for 7 years.If I can do that at my age anybody can. When I tell people about it, they just look at me as though I live in cloud coocoo land and carry on eating their usual junk food,make their usual doctors visits and swallow the usual intake of toxic drugs that make them feel miserable and send them to an early grave. I realy believe most people are so indoctrinated, dumbed down and enslaved and frightened that they will never learn or believe they are being poisoned by the very people that claim to heal and protect them. More fool them.

      You hit the nail right smack dab on the head, Emanuel. "…by the very people that claim to heal and protect them."

      Emanuel! I took my mom home from the nursing home/rehab, etc… after 5 months of their mistakes. I reduced her medicines from 12 to one in one month. It took about a year for her to eat table food, using her feeding tube only for water and vitamins to be crushed, after that. It took almost 2 years to remove the cathetar. My mother used to be a Masters Bridge player and when I asked her doc for a better formula to put in the feeding tube…he said "Nutrition has nothing to do with a stroke." Her neurologist said: the brain can never recover. I have learned to keep from bragging, because the health profession does not want a bunch of geriatrics living longer healthier lives. (I was investigated for withholding medicines. I told the case worker that her sugar levels and blood pressures were better than most people). In fact, my sister died this Spring because she refused to eat organics or do anything different from what the "experts" told her. She saw 1st hand our mother's recovery process. My advice: stay off the grid when helping others. My friend who never listened to me when her daughter was dying, told me that I should go into the natural healing profession. I helped her through something that 2 trips to the doctor and emergency room made worse. The sad thing is, you might be able to help about 3 out of 50 people… but there are haters out there, beware. It is very sad when you have the resources to help someone and the best they can do is roll their eyes at you.

    Way back in 1960 a 76 year old man bench pressed 475 pounds and he did not start weight training until he was 60 ! Of course he was unusally stong to begin with.

    THANK YOU.

    Consider two areas. First, each cell needs a complete list of chemicals to operate successfully. Second, that list of chemicals goes to the hardest working cells first ( usually the hardest working muscles ) and therefore you need a surplus of all chemicals at all times. Vit B,D,E,K,Q,selenium,chromium,sulfur,etc, etc,
