His name is Lazaro Almanaras, he is a champion bodybuilder and he is A LOT older than he looks. Lazaro, who lives in Ealing, London, has been training since he was 25-years-old and he has no plans to ever take his foot off the gas pedal. But before we get to how he stays looking so young, can you guess how old he is. Go on, take a look at the next few pictures.
Any idea yet?
O.K. I’ll tell you. He is (cue an agonizingly long drumroll)………… 62-years-old. Sixty Two. Sixty. Fucking. Two. SIXTY MOTHER FUCKING TWO.
Color me impressed.
According to his interview with Daily Mail:
People ask me when I’m going to retire. My response? “Never”. This is my passion and I will continue developing my body for as long as I can. I love my job, I love to train, I love competing. I’ve been doing this for 37 years and love every minute of it.’
I believe that if you have the right mind you can just carry on going and continue to get better. Age is just a number to me and I would not let my age threaten my career.
‘Age gives people an opportunity to lie back and take a step back. They will never believe how old I am when I tell them. As soon as I reveal my age they are in total shock and ask me straight away what the secret behind the body is. I just tell them determination, goals and persistence. The more active you are, the younger you will feel, it’s that easy.’
Goddammit. I was going to take today off from working out. Now I can’t do that thanks to this son of a bitch who drank the fountain of youth dry.
