Sanford Bennett, born in 1841, was most famous for growing young at the age of 70. At around 50 years old, Sanford suffered from a wide range of chronic diseases and many wrinkles made him look much older than he actually was.
He tried to solve his health issues through conventional medicine with no success. After that he came up with around 35 exercises which he did before getting out of bed in the morning. Using these workouts, he managed to look like a young guy at the age of 70, which was proven by medical examinations. Strangely enough, his face became free of wrinkles and Sanford’s claimed that the reason for this is quite simple. Judging from his theory, mineral deposits accumulate in our tissues as we get older, causing them to become inelastic and stiff.
Therefore, his exercise routines are focused on contraction and relaxation of every muscle in the body in order to get rid of accumulated mineral deposits. All these exercises are explained in his book “Exercising in Bed” written in 1907. After five years, he published one more book entitled “Old Age – Its Cause & Prevention”, to be used along with the first one.
Take a look at this video to find out how to do thirty exercises from his book:
Bennett would probably live a very long time if he hadn’t been killed in an accident around 1926, at the age of 85.
