72 year old powerlifter

Interesting video of a 72 year old powerlifter. It wouldn't be surprising if some of you have heard of him.

Re: 72 year old powerlifter

That is freaking amazing. More power to him, and he almost goes low enough in his squats

No but really, that's some serious dedication.

Re: 72 year old powerlifter

What a fantastic story!

Jay had an article on Fred Glass on his fridge door, which I read over coffee, eggs, and brisket at MeatFest. It was a great read, and gave me a new goal; to be moving at least as much weight at 80 as I can at 40.

Seriously, guys like this are an inspiration.
