77-year-old Willie Murphy, of Rochester, New York, is able to do feats of strength that are very difficult for people of any age. One-handed pull-ups, fingertip pushups and one-handed pushups are no problem for Murphy, the Mirror reports.

The 105-pound grandmother can also deadlift 215 pounds, a feat that recently won her the coveted World Natural Powerlifting Federation 2014 Lifter of the Year at last month’s WNPF World Championships in Riverdale, Georgia.

Murphy started lifting just a few years ago when she saw a sign at her local YMCA for a weight-lifting competition. When she asked if she could participate, an employee said, “Go for it, granny,” according to the Rochester Democrat And Chronicle.

“None of those steroids for me,” she told the paper while setting down a barbell.

Murphy works out three days a week,and says it’s important for younger people to see her at the gym.

“They see I’m old and I’m not being pushed around in a wheelchair,” she said, according to USA Today. “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.”
