Carmen Caputo-Talk About Setting the Bar High. A 455 lb Deadlift on His 70th Birthday-#189 Carmen is USA Marine Veteran, a Retired School Teacher and has been a Weightlifter for 55 years. Carmen is in touch with his former students and many of them weight lift with him at his home. Carmen’s story is what we all strive for in life and also under the loaded bar. On his seventh birthday he tore a 455lb dead lift off the floor and made it look so easy. Carmen is the standard I like to bring on Motivation and Muscle. He is a man of the iron will, a real old school strength athlete, but most of all he is a humble and one of the most inspiring guests I’ve ever had on my podcast. The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show connects your Brain to your Brawn. Enjoy!
