Turning 50 and Entering a Bodybuilding Competition
He warms up and then he pushes a 100 pound dumbbell in each hand for 10 repetitions. He does over 800 pounds on the leg press for 10 repetitions. He stands 6'2" tall at 215 pounds sporting a 46 inch chest and a 32 inch waist. Most people think he's thirty something, but he's not. He's Darvis Simms and he turns 50 this year and he's entering a bodybuilding competition in June.
Darvis is a personal trainer who believes that strength training is the key to staying healthy and fit as you age. Darvis says, "I've been weight lifting for over 20 years and I know it's the reason I feel as good and strong as I do now. I'm actually in better shape now than I was when I was 30."
Darvis says he is entering a bodybuilding competition to inspire his clients and others to make strength training a part of their fitness program. "If I can motivate one person to start working out regularly because they see me competing in a bodybuilding show at age 50 then it's worth all the effort I'm putting into my training," Simms says.
Darvis is the author of Ageless Fitness, The Ageless Fitness Daily Workout Journal, and downloadable strength training e-books all of which can be found on his website at http://www.darvissimms.com .
