Age is nothing but a number for rocker Bob Weir, who turned 72 last week and remains dedicated as ever to a serious exercise regimen.
The founding member of the Grateful Dead opened up about his passion for fitness in a new interview published Thursday, explaining that “at my age, if you let it go, it ain’t coming back.”
“[Exercise] is something guys my age can do, and it will make an immense difference in what they call your golden years if grace and happiness are goals of yours,” Weir told Men’s Health. “I remember looking in the mirror in my 20s and thinking, ‘Holy s—. I’m ripped!’ That was probably the peak of it. I’m getting to a place now where I’m rivaling that. I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got going now.”
