Most senior citizens at age 77 are not frequenting the gym let alone dead lifting 215 lbs. Not so for Ms. Willie Murphy who can also do 1-handed push-ups and pull-ups with ease. As you can see, she is not your typical senior citizen. She started weight lifting a few years ago after seeing a sign posted for a weightlifting competition at a YMCA in Rochester, NY. She asked if she could compete and a worker told her, “Go for it, Granny! She did and the rest, as they say is history!  This grandmother competes regularly, and was named the World National Powerlifting Federation 2014 Lifter Of The Year. Murphy feels it is important for young people to see her in the gym to inspire them to better health in their later years. Click here to read more.
