They say age is only a number, that you only feel as old as your mind feels. By the looks of 70-year-old man-of-steel Sam "Sonny" Bryant Jr. from Georgia, those sayings must true.
Whenever you think you’re not “young enough” to start chiseling away fat and becoming a healthier person, watch this video and snap out of it. I mean, have you seen his abs? This “old” man can definitely out-lift a 25-year-old.
According to this video by the Augusta Chronicle, Sonny didn’t start working out until he was 44 — he started bodybuilding soon after. His philosophy: “If you start thinking you're old … your body is going to feel that it's old. Then you'll start acting old, feeling old, you’ll be old.”
That’s good advice for any age, especially for people who are still in their prime.
“A lot of young guys, they go home, sit around, watch TV and do nothing; I've seen a lot of young guys who are older than me,” he told the Chronicle.
