57-year old Scottish Man Stronger and Awesomer Than Ever
One of the most gratifying things for me is to hear from someone who’s considered over the hill – which in our Western society is 40 – and act age-inappropriately.
I’m not talking about an 80-year old dude chasing 18-year old girls. No, I mean doing physical things you’re not “supposed” to do at a certain age.
Here’s a note from a 57-year old Scottish man who’s disregarding the common BS that he’s too old, and taking matters into his own hands:
I just wanted to write and thank you for emails and your programs. Over the years I’ve done my fair share of circuit training, sports conditioning. My main hobbies were back packing, rock climbing and skiing. I had got a book on Body weight exercises for phenomenal strength–but they were really just a step too far and I could see no way of getting there.
I then recently got your Gymnastic Abs program. I am impressed. Your approach is for every one, not just the elite. You make it actually possible and achievable. Because I’m starting from a reasonable base I’m making gains in some of the exercises quite quickly, but I have some way to go on others- but at least I’m on the way, and I know with perseverance I will reach the goal.
I was also very gratified that they are not “just abs exercises”. They are far more “holistic” than meets the eye. After 3 weeks I was seeing improved endurance and power when pulling through over hangs on rock climbs.
You and Matt Furey have opened doors for me that I had only dreamt of in the past. Normally at my age (57), folk expect to lose muscle bulk and strength; but I have never been stronger, and my physique continues to develop. I want to still be doing it at 85.
The sense of well being that comes with this is priceless. I also enjoy your realistic advice in you emails which accepts that we are not perfect, but that we can still make the journey.
Thanks so much for writing. You’re awesome. I’m thrilled to see you’re getting stronger and fitter than ever. Most importantly, I’m really happy to see you had the belief to do it. You’re right, most people consider 57 too late for strength. But you defied this BS and proved ‘em all wrong.
Just as the 85-year old German Gymnast Granny did, you’re proving my point that your attitude, not your age, matters. And that health, strength and fitness is for everyone. Stellar work, brother. Keep it up and let me know how it goes. Can’t wait for you to reach the next level.
Whether you’re Scottish (or American or Australian or Asian or African or European), you can gain supreme physical supremacy. Where you’re from doesn’t matter. Only where you’re going does.
Set course for your strongest body yet by going here.
All the best,
