Her Daily Workout Routines Are Quite Impressive – For Her Age
We're all going to live to a nice, long, healthy age. Healthy, right? Well, I want to help you figure out how to do exactly that, because if you're going to live into your 70s, 80s, 90s, 100s, you want to make sure that you're healthy for as much of it as you possibly can. We have long and long lifespans, but we don't tend to have a very long healthspan. We tend to live the last 12 years of our lives in a state of declining health, and that's not really what we want to do. We want to be super healthy all the way up to the day we die. Right.
Well, let me share with you the story of Charlotte Sanddal. Charlotte has a workout routine. I want to share it with you because it's something you might want to consider emulating. Charlotte starts the day with a plank pose for one minute. She then does a wall set for one minute. She does that twice a day. She goes to a health club three times a week. She uses the leg press and the chest press and she swims four times a week, typically a half mile each day. She does all four strokes and she says, 'If I do too much, I'm wiped out and I need to come home and take a nap'.
She walks around her block twice a day and she uses walking poles, which makes it easier and also provides upper body strength. She stretches every day, does yoga twice a week. She drinks protein shakes with chia and flax seeds. Supper? Usually a salad and some wine, which she loves. She also loves chocolate milkshakes and hot fudge sundaes.
Why am I talking about Charlotte? I mean, that workout regimen doesn't sound all that extreme, does it? It certainly sounds like something you too could do, especially the chocolate milkshakes. Charlotte has competed in 400 swimming races. She holds five world records, 10 swimming records, and she's been in the top 10 300 times. And she's currently training for the 2023 world championships that are going to be held in Japan.
And Charlotte, in case I forgot to mention it, is 100 years old.
