the World's Oldest Female Bodybuilder

the World's Oldest Female BodybuilderKocim news - Take a good look at this woman.
Does she look 74 to you?

This is Ernestine Shepherd, the world's oldest female bodybuilder -- and she regularly competes with women half her age on the Musclemania circuit.

I bet she could out-lift, out-press and out-tough plenty of younger men, too.

Certainly, I don't know any dudes who can keep up with her routine: The 5-foot-5, 130-pound grandma wakes up at 3 a.m., runs 10 miles and then puts in her time in the gym -- going through a full regimen of pushups, pull-ups and free weights.

"I feel younger now than I did 20 years ago," Shepherd said.

What's her secret?

Aside from a diet of egg whites, chicken and brown rice, she's got good genes and a strong sense of commitment.

"Ernestine has both, or she wouldn't have gotten as far as she has," said he trainer, former Mr. Universe Yohnnie Shambourger.
