Sy Perlis didn’t lift weights until he was 60 years old. Over twenty years later, he decided to enter his first lifting competition. That was around five years ago. He’s now 91 years old and a world record holder. Last week, he bench pressed 187.2 pounds, the most ever in the 90-and-over division.
You can see him in action at the video below.
If you ever thought you were too old to try something new, think again. Sy Perlis just shattered every possible excuse. I would have guessed him to be in his 70s. He looks incredible.
Hats off to him for the inspiration.
