Traditions preface: For inspiration on staying strong and healthy well into your 80s and 90s, we turn to Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, otherwise known as the Notorious RBG.
Originally published on NBC News:
The 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice isn't leaving the bench anytime soon — and maintaining her physical fitness keeps her on top of her game.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, aka, the Notorious RBG, is nothing if not perseverant, and no matter where your politics lie, there’s no arguing that this associate Supreme Court Justice of the U.S has overcome great obstacles (personal loss, poverty, sexism and anti-Semitism to name a few) to make historic strides for women’s rights and gender equality.
While most people would be retired by her age, the 85-year-old feminist pioneer is committed to spending at least another five years on the bench.
How does she do it? In part by maintaining a challenging fitness regimen. If you’ve tuned into CNN Film's "RBG" documentary featuring the two-time cancer survivor in her “super diva” sweatshirt working out with her longtime personal trainer Bryant Johnson, or checked out Johnson’s new book, “The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong…And You Can, Too”, then you know these exercises aren’t for the faint of motivation.
Plank poses, squats and push-ups and are integral to the justice’s twice-a-week workout.
