At 77-years-old, Willie Murphy refuses to slow down.
In fact, she's doing quite the opposite. Murphy, a native of Rochester, N.Y., is a competitive weightlifter who recently attended the World Natural Powerlifting Federation (WNPF) World Championships.
At just 105 pounds, Murphy says she self-taught and self-trained herself to lift 215 pound weights and can do one-handed pull-ups, one-handed pushups and fingertip pushups, among other impressive exercises.

"She is so spunky, sweet and inspirational," Lisa Greer, director of administration and member services at Murphy's local YMCA told 'Democrat & Chronicle.' "I couldn't do half the things she does."
And, in case you were wondering, Murphy insists her strength is all natural. "None of those steroids for me," she said.
Last month she handily won her division in the deadlift competition at the WNPF championships and received first-place awards in the power curl, bench press and bench press repetitions categories. She was also given the coveted 2014 Lifter of the Year award.
"They see I'm old and I'm not being pushed around in a wheelchair," Murphy said of her strength. "I can shovel my own snow. And I can push my car if it gets stuck in the snow... I'm almost 80 years old and I am still living life."
