This guy with big muscles should have spent more time working on athleticism, rather than focusing only on size. All that bulk just slowed him down and made him tire easily.
54-year-old Mark Jordan of Texas, has set a new Guinness world record for most pull-ups done in one day with an astonishing 4,321. “My mission … is to let everybody know that it’s never too late to start to make a difference as far as improving and optimizing your health,” said Jordan, who trained for a year for his record-setting feat.

Researchers at King’s College London, in the United Kingdom believe exercise can slow the ageing process. Their study compared participant’s telomeres – sequences of DNA found at the end of a chromosome that protect chromosomes from damage. Telomeres get shorter and can’t play their role of protector as well as people continue to age and cells die off. Shorter telomeres mean older, more tired cells. However, the telomeres of participants who exercised more in their leisure time were longer than the telomeres of people who didn’t get as much physical activity. That led researchers to conclude that people who exercise regularly are biologically younger than those who are sedentary.
