Age is never an excuse for people who know what they want. Sam ‘Sonny’ Bryant says he’s as old as he feels and you’ll never guess his age.That’s because the iron-pumping pensioner has pecks that men half his age would only dream of. His biceps are bulging and his legs are like logs of oak. And the only pills he takes are his vitamins.
At 70 years old, Sonny is a champion bodybuilder from Georgia … and he has no plans of hanging up his singlet just yet.
‘People ask me when I’m going to retire,’ he says. ‘I say “never”. More people die retired than people do working. I love to work, I love to work out. I’ve been doing this for 27 years.’
