Chinese Man Who Has Been Exercising Every Day For Decades Shares His Strict Exercise And Eating Regimen – And You’ll Be Amazed At His REAL Age
- Yang Xinmin is in his 70s, but the experienced bodybuilder looks like he is 30
- Mr. Xinmin was one of China’s first bodybuilders in the early 1980s
- His daily workouts and a diet strictly based on fiber and protein are key
- The ‘iron grandpa’ said he ‘wants to push the limits of the human body’
A Chinese man who has been bodybuilding for 40 years has revealed the secrets of his ageless physique.
Yang Xinmin is 72 years old but looks better than most 30-year-olds, squats 170 pounds and has the bone density of a much younger man, according to his doctor.
The fitness trainer was one of the earliest exponents of bodybuilding in China, competing in the country’s first competition for the sport in 1983 with 38 other participants.
‘We made our own barbells, dumbbells, horizontal bars and parallel bars [to train],’ he said.

“I am convinced that I can continue to train until I am 75 years old,” said Mr. Xinmin

Inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. Xinmin won more than 100 trophies and medals in his career.
But it’s his dedication to preserving his competition-era physique into old age that is most impressive.
‘My body shape, muscle strength and strength are better than most young people, even though I am [into my 70s] now,” he said.
“Sport is the most important part of my life. Due to my years of experience, becoming a champion is no longer my goal.
“My goal is to stay healthy and fight aging to have energy to do something else.”
YANG XINMIN’S SECRETS FOR AGELESS FITNESS
* Strict diet focused on fiber and protein that Xinmin has followed for the past 10 years.
* 6-8 eggs for breakfast, as well as tomatoes, cucumber, oatmeal and chicken breast.
* Morning jogging every day.
* Followed by strength training for an hour and a half a day.
* “When doing strength training, remember three things,” Mr. Xinmin said. “Make sure the movements are standard. Build muscle and lose fat. Try to improve your balance.’
* Self-discipline and perseverance.
“To maintain my health and body status at my age is only possible through the accumulation of years and years of daily workouts,” said Mr. Xinmin.

Mr. Xinmin said he wanted to push the limits of the human body by training well into his 80s
It’s an achievement for which the online bodybulding community has dubbed him the “Iron Grandpa.”
A strict diet based on fiber and protein, a regular daily routine, self-discipline and a good night’s sleep are the keys to Mr. Xinmin’s appearance, he said.
“I’m confident I can keep training until I’m 75 years old,” he said.
“Then hopefully I can keep training when I’m 80. And then 85.
‘I want to push the boundaries of the human body.’
