60-year old bodybuilder, Ustad Abdul Waheed, is a real-life example of the quote ‘age is just a number’. Recently, the muscular man has been crowned Mr. Pakistan after he won the 2021 Bodybuilding Championship.
Ustad Abdul Waheed is a resident of Lahore. While talking to a media outlet about his fitness journey, he said:

I have been looking after my fitness since the age of 16, and I will continue to do so even after accomplishing the goal of being crowned Mr. Pakistan.
The inspiring bodybuilder further shared:
Good health is a gift from God. With Him showering His blessings on me, and with me down here not taking anything for granted and working hard to stay fit, even at 60, I don’t see why I won’t keep winning in bodybuilding competitions even when I am 100 years old.
Previous Winning Titles of the 60-year-old Bodybuilder and the Way Forward
Waheed won the Mr. Punjab title before being crowned Mr. Pakistan. Now the bodybuilder has his eyes on the Mr. Asia title. Talking about the Mr. Asia title, Ustad Abdul Waheed said:
The Mr. Asia competition is likely to be held in India sometime next year, and I am gearing up to win the competition and make a name for my country.
Waheed further shared:
My lifestyle is costly, and I have gone through a lot of hardships in maintaining it. My intake primarily includes minced meat, pulses, porridge, milk, yogurt, eggs, salads, and fruits or dried fruits. We break these into six to seven meals a day, with proper gaps for rest and exercise in between.
Currently, the 60-year-old bodybuilder runs a fitness club in Lahore, aiming to train people, and produce many Mr. Pakistan winners in the future. The main goal of Ustad Abdul Waheed is to motivate the young generation and move them away from drugs and towards healthy activities.
