Ernestine Shepherd - Check out those guns!

Dear Ernestine “I Rock Buff & Stuff With My Abs Of Steel” Shepherd,

Bravo! You look amazing! Thanks for providing yet another example of “black don’t crack.” Your story I’m sure has inspired so many people. You’ve even inspired me to get into some other shape other than round. For those of you who haven’t heard, Ernestine is currently the Guinness Book World record holder for oldest female bodybuilder. She’s 74 years old, and has obviously aged like a fine wine.

Ernestine is a grandmother who has been married for 54 years, and the article said that her husband makes all her meals for her and runs her errands so she can train, if that ain’t sweet, supportive, and loving I don’t know what is.
