Thanks Diane, good for him. I feel his family are wrong,the training is what has helped him keep going even after various health set backs,and is probably slowing down senescence.Without the training he would most likely deteriorate much quicker,like he says it is part of who he is. Hope he is lifting for many more years to come.
Regards,Peter.
