Well, some days I *feel* like I am 91! Thanks for the compliment about my weight lifting. No way could I bench press 187 pounds, though. Actually I don't ever do free weights, so it's hard to know exactly what I could lift, if I did. But 187 pounds? I think not.
The reason I don't do free weights is that I am concerned about sports injuries and my understanding is that the machines are a little bit safer in that respect.
We have an 85 year old guy at my gym named Larry who does a serious
45 minutes on the elliptical, and then lifts as much as I do, at least three days a week. I see him at the gym every time we go there. He is amazing! He walks with a bounce in his step and looks like he is in his early 50's but I know that he isn't. I got to know his wife, Pat, who comes to the gym with him.
Thanks for the inspiration!
