Jose Pena is only 17 years old but he already owns a weightlifter world record. It’s not hard to see why.[contentblock id=5 img=adsense.png]
Think back to when you were 17 years old. What had you accomplished at that point in your life? You’d probably gotten your drivers license. Maybe you were on a varsity sports team. Maybe you’d made the National Honors Society. Maybe you’d gotten to second base with a girl. But chances are you hadn’t set any world records in anything.
Now meet Joseph Pena, a high school kid from San Antonio. In 2014, at the age of 15, Pena set a world junior record when he squatted 727 pounds raw, without raps, at the drug-tested USA Powerlifting Nationals. Now, at the age of 17, he’s set another world record by squatting a whopping 875 pounds at the Holy Cross Invitational weightlifting meet. And he made it look easy.

I don’t know about you, but I’m impressed. Hell, I feel macho when I buy the extra large 70-pound bag of dog food and manage to get it to the car without pulling a muscle. So hats off to Joseph Pena. That kid is a beast.
