My dad walks several miles every evening, and on his walks he stops by the fire station to do pushups off the curb. It started out innocently enough, until some of the guys at the station saw him and started egging him on. Of course with a bunch of healthy twenty and thirty year olds watching, the old man wasn't about to quit until he collapsed. That was a few years ago and he hasn't quit showing off by the fire station. Last I heard he was up to a little over 500.
Dad just turned 80 this year.
Some of these old guys put us all to shame.
Excellent. Just turned 60 myself and have been working on the body in a regular and semi-serious way for the last three years or so, although I was never in really bad shape like most of my friends (one of which is 62, 5'6" and over 250 lbs. Don't know how much longer he's going to be around after he's had two heart attacks).
Staying in good physical condition affects your whole mental state as well. Makes me want to be a survivor just to meet the challenge.
I'm an old fart in the making, and seeing guys much older than me keeps me going.
Keeping active does make you feel well mentally, not just physically.
500 pushups?! Are you kidding me?!!!
I started a six years ago when my son was in the Army and I agreed to workout with him while he was in basic. We'd talk regularly and he passed his PT test and I was up to 50 pushups. (When I started I could do only 6) I let it go a few years back and now I need to jump back in. This post may be my motivator!
It makes my mom insane. "He's OBSESSED!" she frets. The doctor even got onto him, made him stop for a while, but he said he felt really bad when he did so he went right back to it. It's funny to see him. He's over 6 ft, and skinny like old men get with chicken legs and no butt to hold his pants up, and then he has these big pecs and shoulders.
For the record I'm young enough to be their grandchild.
