An old man who is 93 years old has a biological age of 30 and is studied by science

Awesome! A 93-year-old man, the biological age of a 30-year-old man, is being studied by scientists at the University of Limerick in Ireland. They discovered that Richard Morgan's physique would be the envy of any big boy.

At this age, it is 80% muscle and only 15% fat. His “air engine” is like that of a 30 or 40 year old, with a lot of verve.

He has won four world rowing championships and amazed scientists with his impressive levels of endurance and strength. In detail: Morgan started exercising only 20 years ago, when he was already 70 years old.

what is the secrete?

Morgan says the secret to longevity is simple: exercise and eat healthy.

Known as the “century-old athlete”, he rows about 30 kilometers a day and also trains with weights to improve his strength.

The Irishman still follows a high-protein diet to maintain his metabolism and build muscle.

And look at this: He's already rowed the equivalent of 10 laps around the world.

More than heart health

The researchers recorded the activity of Morgan's heart, lungs, and muscles while he rowed.

During the test, Morgan reached a peak of 153 beats per minute, which exceeds the maximum heart rate expected for his age.

This shows that his heart is very strong and healthy, even at the age of 93 years.

“Very happy to do this”

Morgan was a battery maker and baker. Until he was seventy years old, he did not engage in any physical activity regularly.

“I started with nothing, and then suddenly realized there was a lot of fun in doing this,” Morgan told The Washington Post.

Today, it has become a case study as an example of healthy aging and fitness.

The effect of physical activity on aging

Getting just 20 minutes of physical activity a day can reduce your risk of cancer, dementia and heart disease by about a third, and is more effective than some medications.

A 2004 study showed that people over 65 who exercised were 28% less likely to die from any cause.

Moderate physical activity for 150 to 299 minutes per week also reduces mortality by 20 to 21%.

Morgan set an example that it is never too late to start taking care of our health and dedicate ourselves to physical exercise!
