Any 3x Bodyweight Deadlifts Over Age 70?

Create: 10/20/2007 - 09:53

Does anyone know of any Masters Lifters over the age of 70 that currently do 3x their bodyweight in the deadlift? My workout partner is 72 and he is closing in on deadlifting 3x his bodyweight of 180 lbs. Presently he is at about 515 lbs.

Your workout partner is very impressive. Can you give us details like his name, which fed he lifts in, where he is from, what upcoming meets he is doing. I think 3x at over 70 is just super ad inspirational.

He is from Michigan, and has mostly lifted USAPL doing full power meets, but says his squatting days are over, so his goal now is the 181 LB.(M68-74) WABDL World Record Deadlift of 524.5. Here is a video of his recent 510 in training: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p75IKlfvroc
