A man from northeast China’s Jilin Province is keeping fit in his own way. The 70-year-old Lu Jingfa made a pair of wooden shoes to train every morning.

The shoes are 35 centimeters high and weigh around four kilograms each. Lu said that he can walk around 3 kilometers each day and climb 1,800 steps while wearing the shoes. He started with wooden shoes only 2cm high, but gradually increased the height up to the current 35cm.

"The everyday workout [from] wearing this shoe has helped me with the varicosity in my legs," Lu told the photo agency VCG.-Internet
