Going to the gym and working out is a big task for some of us. We need to force and motivate ourselves to do so even if we sign up for the membership. And then, we are bombarded with celebrities flaunting their waistline and workout routines all over social media. But what if I tell you there is someone whose workout routine at the gym will put you to shame?
Well, Lauren Bruzzone, a 75-year-old grandma goes to the gym and kills it. She spends time doing hard-core weight training that includes difficult push-up variations, and weighted pull-ups, that also work on her balance, deadlifts, etc.
Although there is this popular belief that old people shouldn’t move around too much or work too much. They are expected to sit and relax for most of the day. There is a myth that if old people exercise too much it can cause stress to their bodies, and they might end up suffering an injury. But what we don’t realise is that our bodies be they old or young are like machines. If you don’t make them work, they’ll gather rust and dust.
Lauren is a professor by profession and likes to spend time in the gym working out in her “free time”. She started her gym sessions with a simple pull-up exercise but now, the sky’s the limit for her. She works out weighted planks, Bosu ball push-ups, bench presses, and extreme planks.
