75-year-old grandmother presses the bar along with the pitching: “If I can, then you can”

Everyone’s life is different, and the 75-year-old Iris Davis considers her life to be quite normal. The fact that she continues to receive bodybuilding awards at her age, and she celebrated her last birthday by pulling herself 21 times on the horizontal bar, she also considers normal. “If I can, then you can,” she says to everyone she helps in the gym.

Iris Davis now lives in Melbourne, Florida. In the 1960s, in this city a woman was still not allowed to go to the gym – this was inappropriate, and sometimes simply forbidden. Now, according to Iris, she herself is the best proof that times have changed – she is a woman, she is 75 years old, and she teaches other people, including male bodybuilders, how to properly perform certain exercises and workouts.

And so, almost immediately after giving birth, her husband died. Iris was in such a terrible state that depression literally fettered her Continue reading
