This incredible weightlifting grandma trains in the gym more than SIXTEEN hours a week (RAW)
Meet one of the world's toughest grandmas - an international powerlifting champ who says she looks and feels better than she did 30 years ago. Mary Duffy, 71, took up gym work outs aged 59 in a bid to lose weight, and soon got hooked on lifting weights. Now she spends around 20 hours a week pumping iron and exercising, and has more than 30 state and world records to her name. The pocket rocket can lift more than many men a quarter her age - but is regularly told she's "too old" to be hitting the gym.
