I Did the Impossible… AGAIN!

On Sunday the 17th November 2013 I did the impossible… AGAIN!

For seven years I have been working out and lifting weights. This by itself is amazing because of my genetic skin condition.

You see I was born with an incredibly rare and debilitating genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa (more commonly known as Cotton Wool Babies or Butterfly Children).

My skin is in the medical books as having the strength and consistency of tissue paper. Until just a few short years ago I could not lift anything more than a 2 litre bottle of milk and even then I had to be careful as any pressure or weight or sharp edge would just slice through my skin.

However when I discovered that my body could handle a controlled and managed gym program including lifting weights I started defying all medical logic and all expectations as I began to thrive in the gym. With the assistance of a few very close friends who are sporting superstars all over the world I began to achieve some amazing things.

Culminating on this past weekend when as I said before I achieved the impossible with a new bench press record of 145kgs. That’s roughly 320 pounds in the old scale.

What is even more amazing is I weigh in at just 71kgs which means I just bench pressed well over double my body weight. Disability aside lifting double your body weight on any level is a massive achievement. The fact that I have a severe disability that needs constant management, add to it the fact that I had a life expectancy of just 5 years when I was born and I’m now 34 years young…you begin to understand why this is such an amazing milestone.

I hope this inspires all who watch the video.

When you believe in miracles and ‘Expect A Miracle’… it is amazing what you can achieve.
