72 year old grandma does 55 pushups

Or at least that's what the summary of the video says. I don't understand/read whatever language they were speaking or whatever language it was subtitled with, so I have no idea if she's 72 or not. But she did do 55 pushups. (wfs)

Re: 72 year old grandma does 55 pushups

she's 72 and started working out at 46, one time a week.
5 years ago she started working out more, about 5 times a week, now she's up to 6 times a week.

She's from the northern part of sweden, atleast what it sounds like to me

pretty strong for a Granny
