Here’s another amazing feat by Karl Norberg (The Mighty Norseman). Karl is not only lifting a deep-dish 45-pound York Barbell plate by the hub, but also performing a muscle-out with it at chest height. That’s basically TWO World-Class feats performed at the same time. It should be noted that Karl was over 70 years of age when this shot was taken.

Karl Norberg ~ The Mighty Norseman

Here’s one you can try at home: do a front hold out with an Olympic barbell, then, by wrist power alone twist it from horizontal to vertical and back again. At 70 years of age, “The Mighty Norseman,” Karl Norberg could do this with ease.
