Standing Rollouts At Age 60

Below is a video of a man doing 60 rollouts on his 60th birthday. And while I’ve already seen a few Youtube comments questioning the man’s form, there is no denying that rolling the wheel out continuously for five minutes from the standing position requires a tremendous amount of strength and endurance. This man is capable of more at age 60 than plenty of men half his age.

For those interested in progressing from a kneeling to standing rollout, take a look at the link below for one useful option:

    Wow…wish i could do that from my knees! those youtube commentators/critics should read some of the quotes from Ross’s Quotes Compilation Video about critics.

    Straight arms or not, he is doing at least full ROM roll outs from stand to stand compare to other people. Great strength.

    There is also a vid of a 71 year old man doing full standing rollouts on Youtube. Has anyone ever taken a look at the “form” experts that inhabit gyms. Sometimes their criticism has some validity, but more often than not they haven’t a clue about what they’re talking about. As bad as the gym environment is for attracting these know-it-alls, multiply that times a hundred for the clowns who type out their opinions on Youtube, sometimes seriously, or sometimes just using a perfect opportunity to build up their fragile self-esteem throught criticizing others. Most of the critics probably couldn’t do a full straight arm rollout from the kneeling position if they had to, and are probably half this guys age or even younger.

    Really awesome! He’s doing 60 rollouts at an age of 60 and I can’t even do 5 rollouts at an age of 25.Thumbs up for him.

    Absolutely inspiring! I have to repost on my blog. This is what is possible after midlife if the will is strong. Thanks for sharing.

    He’s making me feel tied watching him. If I’m like that at 60 I’ll be impressed, he’s made me want to work out more!
