Jay Fein served in the United States Army and was seriously wounded in Iraq 10 years ago. His injuries were so critical that he had to have his right leg amputated. Despite having only one leg doesn’t stop Jay from weightlifting, even deadlifting, where so much power and balance is derived from the legs.
“One day about a year ago I started dead-lifting with one leg because I’ve never dead-lifted before and I have a natural ability to be strong there,” Fein said. “This deadlift was 275 lbs and it took me almost six months to get to that point but I’m working to get more hopefully 300 lbs or more one day and I am almost there.” Keep at Jay and 300 pounds is right around the corner with your incredible motivation.
Wow, just wow.
