Brit smashes Guinness World Record for heaviest deadlift with a finger - lifting 129.5kg
Guinness World Record that had stood for a decade after deadlifting nearly 130kg with just one finger, and he's got his sights set on 150kg. Steve Keeler, 48, a retail manager, from Shepherdswell near Dover in Kent, managed to lift 129.5kg with just his middle finger for eight seconds, beating the previous record of 121.7kg.Mr Keeler only came up with the idea when he was “playing around” with some weights with a pal in a home gym he had built during lockdown.READ MORE: 'First human to live past 150 years has already been born', claim scientistsHe explained: "In lockdown we were doing some gym work and after messing about with some of the weights I moved a weight that was quite heavy with one finger."We set challenges to see how heavy we could get and I wondered what the world record was."It wasn't much more than what I'd lifted."Mr Keeler began training for the challenge and managed to lift 7.8kg heavier than the previous record, which had stood for 10 years and was held by Armenian Benik Israyelyan.His strength training consisted of lifting six iron weight discs at the same time: a smaller one measuring roughly 10 kg, one 20 kg, three measuring a little over 25 kg each and one measuring 26 kg.He said: "It’s incredibly painful, but my fingers are strong and I am proud of my lift.To get more stories from Daily Star delivered straight to your inbox sign up to one of our free newsletters here . “It's not the weight that's the hard thing to lift, it's getting through the pain and if you can do that then you're fine."It's such a random record but it is mine.
'First human to live past 150 years has already been born', claim age-stopping scientists
150 years old has already been born, an expert has claimed.Currently, the world's oldest human is just 118 years and 137 days old.Lucile Randon lives in France and was born in February, 1904.READ MORE: Putin health mystery deepens after claims Russia faked president's latest appearanceBut an expert in computational biology has claimed that this record could be smashed in just a few generations.Dr Andrew Steele, the author of a new book on longevity and living longer, told MailOnline that there is no reason why a human couldn't actually live to the ripe old age of 200.He said: “I don't think there is any kind of absolute cap on how long we can live.“Studies come out every few years that propose some kind of fundamental limit on human lifespan, but they're always missing one crucial piece: we've never tried treating the ageing process before.“I can't see physical or biological reason why people couldn't live to 200 — the challenge is whether we've can develop the biomedical science to make it possible.”Dr Steele did not, however, explain how that could happen – something he has probably kept for his new book Ageless: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old.So far, the oldest ever recorded person was Jeanne Calment, who was born in February 1875.She died in August 1997 at the impressive age of 122 years and 164 days.The oldest verified male was Jiroemon Kimura, who died in 2013 having been born in 1897.Another expert, Dr Peter Fedichev, a Russian molecular physicist who runs a biomedical AI firm Gero.He said: “Such life extension would increase their lifespan past the end of their health span and thus reduce their quality of life.“Only addressing the root causes of ageing may help bring humans closer to
