I Felt Bad When I Learned He Lost a Leg… And Then He Deadlifted 675lbs!

Even Arnold Schwarzenegger Tweeted About It

Damn son. Derick Carver lost his leg while on patrol in Afghanistan. He hit an IED and much of his right thigh and his left leg were pretty much destroyed. Three years later he was competing and is an inspiration to us all, Arnold Schwarzenegger included. If one man can prove to us that devastating events in one’s life don’t define a man, it’s Derick.

Check out Arnold’s Tweet on the next page, he’s absolutely right.

What up dawg? Marcos here. I live for the iron. I do what I can to stay jacked and get bigger and better and I talk about all of it here. Maybe one day I'll be on the Mr. Olympia stage. If you share that dream you're in the right place. Walk proud bro.
