This 78-year-old woman can now lift 225 pounds two years after struggling to climb stairs

Mustard Minute: 78 Year Old woman Deadlifts 225 Pounds Like a Boss

In 2014, Shirley Webb wasn't physically able to lift herself off the floor, and needed help walking up a simple flight of stairs. According to a profile by ESPNW, her only exercise came from mowing the lawn every now and again.

Then, she joined a gym -- Club Fitness in Wood River, Illinois, with her granddaughter. Fast forward two months, and she was lifting 200 pounds on a regular basis. Don't believe us? There's video proof.

These days, Shirley goes to the gym twice a week. She'll turn 79 in August.

She's currently training to break a deadlifting world record, which is guaranteed in June because the record for someone her age doesn't yet exist. But she's not only lifting to break records.

"I have no intention of stopping right now," Webb said. "When I go to the gym and work out, when I leave, I feel so much better than I did when I went in, and I just feel so good. I feel tremendous."

You go, Shirley!
