Sri Chinmoy Lifts His Bodyweight

Sri Chinmoy often used his ability to lift his own bodyweight as a benchmark of his personal level of fitness.

In this video, he lifts his bodyweight of 160 pounds in a supported partial military press style one hundred times.

Later in the clip, he lifts his students’ cars on a modified standing calf raise platform. Finally he lifts a stack of his books on a modified seated calf raise platform.
