The video that follows is great to watch! One of these amazing guys is my nephew, Tim Parker, and he’s also narrating this video. You’ll find him on YouTube as “mrrrflorida.” Tim is over 50 years old – and as they say, “Still going STRONG!” We’re all very proud of him. I don’t personally know the other guys, but I feel proud of all of them for their accomplishments.
note from Merillion: I guess I’ll pick up my 1½ lb. weights & try and lift what is falling. 🙂
October 30, 2014: Here’s more exciting news from Tim’s brother, Jack Parker:
“My Brother Tim destroyed the Florida Bench Press Record for over 50 year olds a month ago.
I watched him bench 440 Lbs last Saturday (Raw- no bench shirt or elbow wraps) at Oviedo.
Here is a video of him doing triples of 405 as he prepares to set a new American record of close to 470 lbs. My money is on him doing it, then he has his sights set on the world record.”
Good luck Tim!
