(ECNS) -- A 73-year-old senior who lives in Hefei carrying more than 50 kilograms load wandered around the neighborhood on Monday.

He is Meng Xiangchun, known as the "fitness pro".

Meng worked as a workman in a factory from 1966. In spite of heavy loads of daily schedule, he never stopped doing exercises.

He handmade two pairs of dumbbells in 1978 in order to better training himself.

The bigger dumbbell is 47 kilograms and the smaller one 31.5 kilograms. He was the only one in the factory who was able to lift these almost 50 kilograms weights at ease.

Meng kept practicing for over 50 years. Either doing push-ups or heavy lift-weighting is a piece of cake for him. It's never too old to practice. "I'll keep on doing exercises even when I'm 90 years old" said Meng.
