Thanks for the link, it's very inspirational! Just think what he might still do if he adds CF to his training...

Re: Oly. lifting at 71

Thanks for that link. I'm putting that on my blog!

About 1/3 of my clients are in the 60+ category and I think sometimes they think I'm nuts for coaching them on OLY and strength lifts. I can't wait to show this!

Re: Oly. lifting at 71

Thanks for the great responses to this video!
I love Oly. lifting & will be 59, GOD willing , in a few more months.
It helps having Coach Lansky (he's on the video, too) just a few miles away for my gym. He's friends with Coach Burgener and has been a big help to us!

Re: Oly. lifting at 71

He could pass for twenty years younger, I think.

Re: Oly. lifting at 71

Ditto. Compared to the average 71 year old American he looks younger than he is, and could pass for mid 50's or at least 60's. Even his face just looks younger. I wonder if the O-lifting was the positive contributing factor...?
