OK, but:

1) He did compete as a powerlifter.

2) What does 'he doesn't lift' mean? Presumably he does the lifting that's appropriate for his sport.

3) He's competed at a higher level in his chosen sports than most people throwing advice around on the internet. I think you're perhaps dismissing the blood and sweat that goes into training for events other than bodybuilding/powerlifting? 26K mile skating events don't sound too easy to me.
