A 70-year-old man living in Chongqing, China, boasted surprising muscle mass and stamina. He has enjoyed running for 45 years and has been training his strength through mountain climbing and handstands.

Recently, Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post (SCMP) and the American media outlet New York Post reported on Zou Heping, a ‘fit grandfather’ living in Chongqing, southwest China. He has a body and stamina that make it hard to believe he is 70 years old. His abs are clearly visible on his stomach. Even his hair is rich and black.

He uses Gele mountain as his gym and runs shirtless, rain or shine. When climbing a mountain, you use your limb muscles like a frog jumping, and when coming down, you use your limb muscles like a crocodile crawling. He explains that this is a method he learned to strengthen the movement of his limbs without hurting his knees. His exercise routine includes running, hiking, handstands, and pull-ups (an exercise that strengthens the back and arm muscles).

His love for running began in 1979. He was moved into action after reading about his importance to running in a magazine. He started with uphill running and continued exercising as part of his daily routine for 45 years. In the beginning, he built up his stamina by carrying heavy loads. He woke up at 5:30 a.m. every day, built up his stamina by carrying 20 kg of water, and went to work at 8 a.m.

Along with exercising, avoiding alcohol and cigarettes for 40 years and going to bed early also played a role in maintaining a healthy body. He said, “The secret to maintaining a young body is exercising such as running and creating good lifestyle habits.”

Joo Ha-pyeong’s story inspired many people on local social media. One netizen said, “It’s surprising that a 70-year-old grandfather’s physical age is the same as a 17-year-old.” “I’m not even 30 years old yet, but I think this grandfather will knock me out with one punch.” “Age is never important, exercise and a healthy lifestyle keep you young.” “It helps maintain .”

Muscle decreases as you age… It is important to strengthen muscles throughout the body, such as hiking and running.

Joo Ha-pyeong’s muscles show how well he has been taking care of his body. Muscles peak at the age of 30 and then decrease by 3-5% for about 10 years. Starting in your 40s, you lose 1% every year, so building muscle becomes more important as you age. Loss of muscle increases the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, falls, and fractures. It also puts a strain on your bones and joints. This is because muscles play a role in supporting the body’s joints to prevent them from colliding with each other.

Running and hiking, which he enjoys, are effective in strengthening muscles because they use the muscles of the entire body. It is also good for developing cardiorespiratory endurance because it leaves you breathless.

However, people who do not exercise regularly or have weak knees should be careful when hiking. If you climb or descend a mountain without considering the condition of your knees, inflammation and pain may become worse. The same goes for running. If you do not relax your body before and after exercise and run too hard compared to your physical condition, it can lead to ligament damage and muscle rupture. Stretching before and after exercise should increase the flexibility of muscles and ligaments to protect joints.

Even in Korea, there is an ‘80-year-old woman with a great body’… 1st place in the senior division of the body fitness competition in May last year

There are several cases similar to the above story in Korea. Among them, Lim Jong-so (81), known as the ’80-year-old grandmother with a great body,’ took first place in the bikini category in the senior division of the WNC Signature Body Fitness Competition in May last year. In 2019, at the age of 75, she won the spiral competition for the first time in four years after taking second place in the over-38 figure division at the WBC Fitness Open World Championships.

He has been going to the gym since 2018 for rehabilitation after suffering from spinal stenosis. He focused on pain relief by exercising his muscles for an hour, three times a week. He said that after about three months of exercise, he was invited by the gym to participate in a bodybuilding competition. His story was featured not only on domestic broadcasts but also overseas, including on the BBC in the UK and ARD in Germany. It is said that he, who won the senior bodybuilder title, is also working as a senior model.
