Look at yourself and say, “Self, I officially have no more excuses.”

At least that’s what you should be saying after you watch the story of Sam “Sonny” Bryant Jr., who is currently turning heads as a 70-year-old bodybuilder. After first finding his way to the gym at age 44 following a failed marriage, Bryant has been the model of consistency. Never one to let age deter him, Bryant insists that age is nothing more than a state of mind.

“People have the misconception that age makes you old, but I realized it’s the state of mind that makes you old. If I can achieve this, then anyone can,” Bryant shared.

Check out his inspirational video below, and remember to never let excuses (like age or kids) get in the way of you accomplishing your goals.
