Sy Perlis broke the bench press world record for individuals ages 90 and above.  At 91 years old, he lifted 187.2 pounds shattering the previous record of 135 pounds!  He broke the record at National Push-Pull Bench Press and Dead Lift Championships in Phoenix on June 8th.

He only started lifting in his 60's and now works out 5 days a week.



And that's what's good,

Jon
