damn that is def inspirational!! :)
while back this eldery guy who always wore a shirt saying "senior Olympics"
would bench and squat some heavy weight
he had to be in his late 70s or early 80s
i remember he did 200lbs bench press with 5reps
he did the reps oddly though

Impressive indeed.

getting old should be about having good health and maintaining strength.

CORRECTED

Doesn't look like his legs could handle the squat.
