Interesting, Im assuming, hoping, that the article is factual. I find stories like this encouraging.


102-year-old push-up king

[08:39 November 30 2010]

A 102-year-old man in Xiaoshan, Zhejiang Province is so fit that he can still do push-ups on his fists.
Former postman Shi Xiaochun can even do push-ups on one hand, reported Zhejiang News.

He works out at home every day, also doing dips between two chairs and a series of Tai Chi-style exercises, as well as his push-ups.

Shi puts his fitness down to his former career, explaining, "The traffic was not as developed as now. I walked the whole town to deliver the packages and letters."

His daughter Shi Guangyu agreed that her father's amazing fitness was most likely down to his hard working life, as well as his healthy lifestyle.

"My father loves meat, fruits and tea. He never touched cigarettes or alcohol," she said.

Mind has a great power.

I have to agree...this is truly inspirational.

On November 29, 2010 my mother -in-law celebrated her
100th birthday. Her mind is sharp, and she is in good health.
But she cannot do a single pushup ....LOL.

Hey Friends,


WOW! I wish they would have shown a picture of the old boy to go with the article. I truly enjoyed reading about him. This statement resonates with exactly what we teach: "He works out at home every day, also doing dips between two chairs and a series of Tai Chi-style exercises, as well as his push-ups."

Great stuff GB, thanks so much for posting it.

I think that is what most of us hope for, that when we reach old age, whatever that is for each of us, we will still be mobile and active. That’s one of the reasons we workout today.
