I see this elderly guy at my gym, he must be over 50, he is built and strong!! He was repping out deadlifts with over 150kg raw like it was light weights! I love seeing stuff like that!
Its great when you see the same people at the gym every week, they are dedicated to working hard, they may not be the biggest or strongest people, but they have a lot of heart, and thats what counts.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
