Shirley Webb, 78, Deadlifts 225 Pounds Like It's Nothing

"I'm glad that people are getting inspired," she said.

Shirley you must be kidding.

Watch Shirley Webb, 78, repeatedly deadlift 225 pounds like she's picking up a bamboo stick. Three reps, girl? Damn!

According to For The Win, Graham joined a Wood River, Illinois, health club in 2014 and has developed super senior strength.

She has deadlifted as much as 245 pounds, "Today" reported, and hoisted a state age-group record of 237 pounds at a November powerlifting competition in Belleville, Illinois.

"I've seen such a remarkable difference in myself,'' Webb told "Today." "I'm glad that people are getting inspired by me doing this." 

Shirley is 78 years old but she can deadlift 225 pounds three times! (via @jwright0123)
