Meet the 74-Year-Old Bodybuilder Breaking Age Expectations: 'You Don't Have to Fit that Stereotype'

Meet the 74-Year-Old Bodybuilder Breaking Age Expectations: 'You Don't Have to Fit that Stereotype'
- For almost 20 years, the former psychologist has been competing in bodybuilding competitions around the world, while putting a dent in ageist stereotypes.
“A woman my age, 74, is expected to be a certain shape and a certain degree of frailty and the idea is to show, no, you don’t have to fit that stereotype,” Lorraine told the Australian Broadcasting Company. “I’m trying to set people free from the idea that a woman should be a certain way at a certain age.”
Lorraine said she’s up at 5 a.m. each morning and walks nearly five miles a day. Along with hitting the gym three times a week, Lorraine does dozens of pushups and other workouts in the mornings, according to ABC.
