I am impressed and inspired by a young woman who had a stroke some time in her 20s, and as part of her rehab did a lot of weight training, now she competes in shotput. She is one of only four women in the gym training for serious strength, though of course her training is specialised for athletics.
I am impressed and inspired by a former client Stacey, who went from being able to do 3 knee pushups very roughly at 75kg and 30% bodyfat to 69kg and 20%, powercleaning (roughly) and then front squatting for some reps 75kg, and able to put 40kg overhead.
