If you're contemplating skipping the gym today, just watch this video. This 105-pound senior citizen, 77-year-old Willie Murphy of Maplewood, NJ, is a world champion powerlifter. While she's not the only elderly fitness hero we've seen this year, Ms. Murphy's 215-pound deadlift record is hugely inspiring. "I don't need help carrying the groceries," states the muscular senior, who proudly steers clear of performance-enhancing substances. Many people might never expect to lose an arm-wrestling match to a little old lady, but this granny's got some serious guns! Murphy is showing no signs of slowing down and has gathered quite a following in the fitness community — we can't wait to see where this all-natural lifter goes from here.
