Powerlifting grandma hopes to secure 300 pound deadlift by May

January 3, 2018

When Shirley Webb walked into the gym for the first time, a little over three years ago, she was scared, intimidated, and wouldn’t have gone if it wasn’t for her then 16-year-old granddaughter, Dorian.




At the time, the now 80-year-old grandma couldn’t get off the floor without using a chair for support or walk up and down stairs without holding onto the handrail. Her granddaughter didn’t want to brave the gym alone and insisted that Webb join her. When her trainer asked her to get down onto the ground for an exercise during their first session Webb looked up at him and said, “I can’t because I won’t be able to get back up.”
