The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    World's oldest man dies at 113

    World's oldest man dies in N.Y. at 113
    Fred Hale Sr. was 12 days shy of his 114th birthdayThe Associated Press
    Updated: 12:37 a.m. ET Nov. 20, 2004DEWITT, N.Y. - Fred Hale Sr., documented as the world’s oldest man, died Friday. He was 113 years old.

    Hale died in his sleep Friday at The Nottingham in suburban Syracuse, while trying to recover from a bout of pneumonia, said his grandson, Fred Hale III. He was 12 days shy of his 114th birthday.

    Born Dec. 1, 1890, Hale last month watched his lifelong favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox, win the World Series again after 86 years.

    Hale retired 50 years ago as a railroad postal worker and beekeeper, his grandson said. He enjoyed gardening, canning fruits and vegetables and making homemade applesauce.

    “He had a routine and he rarely broke it because anyone else was around,” Hale III told The Post-Standard of Syracuse. “He didn’t need a lot to be happy.”

    At age 95, Hale flew to Japan to visit a grandson who was in the Navy. While en route back to the United States, he stopped in Hawaii and even gave boogie-boarding a try.

    At 103, Hale was still living on his own and shoveling the snow off his rooftop.

    He was born in New Sharon, Maine, when there were only 43 stars on the American flag. He married Flora Mooers in 1910.

    Hale lived in his native Maine until he was 109, when he moved to the Syracuse area to be near his son, Fred Jr., now 82.

    On March 5, 2004, the Guinness World Records acknowledged him as the oldest living man when Joan Riudavets Moll, of Spain, passed away at age 114.

    Hale also was a Guinness record-holder for the oldest driver. At age 108, he still found slow drivers annoying, Fred Hale III said.

    Hale outlived his wife, who died in 1979, and three of his five children. He had nine grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren.

    The world’s oldest living man is now Hermann Dornemann, of Germany, age 111. There are 26 living woman older than him, according to Gerontology Research Group.

    This guy is my idol. What a life it must be to live that long and still be able to wipe your own @ss and not have someone do eveything for you. That's the reason I decided to get in shape on my 29th birthday - pre-midlife crisis? My goal is to live to see SuperBowl 100

    has anyone else noticed that these long-living people always die just shy of their next birthday? it seems like they'd try to hold on..but maybe after that long you don't care

    things like this will become more common with successive generations. It's now thought that 125 year life spans will become fairly possible for the average person.
