Video and More Pics After The Jump

Ernestine Shepherd may have a few gray hairs on her head, but she's in better shape than most people in their twenties.

The 74-year old grandmother will be added to the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest female bodybuilder.

 

Suffering from depression, high blood pressure and acid reflux, Shepherd began working out 20 years ago and hasn't looked back since

Shepherd gets up every morning at 3am and runs 10 miles, before hitting the gym.

"I may do some push ups, pull downs, shoulders, biceps," she says of her workout routine.

At 5-foot-5 and 130 pounds, she maintains a healthy diet of plain brown rice, chicken breasts, vegetables and three glasses of raw egg whites a day.

The Baltimore native remembers her 1st bodybuilding competition like it was yesterday. "I was so happy to be out there with these people. And boy, just to be out there in that [swim] suit - I just felt so great. And I thought I looked good too."

Shepherd, who has been married for 54 years to 80-year old Collin Shepherd, has a 54-year old son and a 14-year old grandson. All of whom are amazed at her accomplishments, which include nine marathons and two bodybuilding trophies over the past 18 years.

This is definitely one lady who proves that age is nothing but a number.
