Bodybuilder Sam “Sonny” Bryant, Jr., has mastered the art of staying mentally and physically fit. Sonny is a 70-year-old bodybuilder from the state of Georgia. A body building champion even at the age of 70.
Sonny says, “many people fall victim to the idea that age makes people old, but he says its a state of mind that makes you old”.
Sonny started working out at the age of 44-years-old. Within 11 months of working out everyday, while in a troubled relationship, a man approached Sonny about entering into a body building competition. Sure enough he won two trophies. He said it was then that working out and body building became an addiction.
Sonny, says inactivity and a persons thought process is what makes a person old. If your subconscious believes you are old, then you will start feeling old. That’s pretty good advice from a man, who first started working out at the age of 44-years-old.
He said, young people who sit around watching TV, not staying busy, will lead to a feeling of old age.
