Meet Ernestine Shepard, the oldest female body builder

She survived the death of a loved one and in 71 began a sports career. Shocked the world with motivational photos and was listed in the Guinness book of records as the oldest female bodybuilder in the world. She’s Ernestine Shepard and she’s 82 now💪

.

For the first time in the gym Ernestine came when she was 56. It brought back a sister Mildred, who was incredibly close! All they wanted then was to get in shape to wear short shorts.

.

But one day Mildred shared his unusual dream: to become a couple with my sister the age of women bodybuilders, about which I shall write in the record books!

.

Then Ernestine and not supposed, that in the time Mildred was already very seriously is sick…

.

The quick loss of her sister crippled Shepard so much that she fell into a deep depression, she began to have panic attacks and heart problems began. Later she told me that she did not know how to survive that period, until one night I saw in a dream sister who asked her to get up and continue to go to their common dream 🌟

.

During his lifetime, and after the death of Mildred was Ernestine for the main incentive. Thanks to her sister, she began to run, eat healthy and, having resumed training, won her first bodybuilding competition at the age of 74!

.

She’s 82 now! Her day starts at 02: 30 with prayers, Breakfast and Jogging. Having got rid of all diseases, she has not taken any medicine for a long time. And her husband, with whom they together for more than 60 years, continues to support a beautiful wife!😍

.

“I will not get tired of telling all the girls and young people that age does not mean ANYTHING except numbers! You are how you feel,” says Ernestine.
