      Probably can beat me .   It's really nice to see someone who doesn't just sit down and waste away.  I really hope he makes his 100 year goal.

        Benching close to his own body weight is quite impressive.  Even if you lift weight regularly, it is hard to get there unless you train consistently.

            Very nice! When I was doing powerlifting competitions there were almost always one or more seniors at the meets I did (I'm referring to 65+ year olds). In one there was a husband/wife duo competing. I'm pretty sure they were both in their 80s (I can't find the results, it was back in 2004).
