“Harrison Ford shirtless. He’s 70.”

If we take care of ourselves: yoga or a little stretching, walking and biking even a few minutes a day…we can feel 10 years younger: Answer these 10 Questions and this Site tells you your Body’s Real “Fitness Age.”

A “few” years earlier:

I’m beginning to think that Indy and his father DID find the holy grail.”

“…it’s interesting is that Harrison Ford is an able handyman and carpenter. Early on after he moved to Los angeles to do Radio voice overs he became a self-taught professional carpenter to support his then-wife and two small sons. While working as a carpenter, he became a stagehand for the The Doors. He also built a sun deck for actress Sally Kellerman and a recording studio for Brazilian band leader Sérgio Mendes.

What landed him his big break is funny. In 1972 He was hired to build cabinets at George Lucas’s home. who subsequently cast him in a pivotal supporting role in the 1973 film, ‘American Graffiti’. Lucas and Ford became good friends after that. In 1975, Lucas hired him to read lines for the actors auditioning for the film Star Wars. It wasn’t until he had done line readings for a couple months that George Lucas, with the studio’s ok, gave him the role of Han Solo.

Ford is a private pilot of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and owns an 800-acre (3.2 km2) ranch in Jackson, Wyoming, approximately half of which he has donated as a nature reserve. On several occasions, Ford has personally provided emergency helicopter services at the behest of local authorities. During his assigned duty time assisting the Teton County Search and Rescue he has aided in two mountain rescues…”

With all of my respect the this website, Mr. Ford look like he is on strict training at the gym. He has mussels that you get only by lifting weights! I believe he run too the Kees low fat.. But definitely he is lifting weights!

He doesn’t need hormones or anything. I am 47 and I have been dating a 71 year old man that is in the most incredible shape. He eats whole food, meat, potatoes, vegetables, and eggs. He spends time working outside his home on his property everyday. He cycles, walks, or runs everyday. He downhill skis all winter. I have never seen a specimen quite like him. Constantly amazing and all natural, no hormones, no drugs and it works better then some 40 year olds I’ve seen. It is possible, live clean your whole life.
