Lift 38

Lift 38 Pec deck lift Dan Lurie: 234 lbs. Apparatus: 69 lbs. Total: 303 lbs. Mahasamrat Bill Pearl next called up his old friend Dan Lurie, a legendary bodybuilder and strongman from the golden days of bodybuilding. For more than a decade, Dan and his son Mark have offered Sri Chinmoy tremendous encouragement and support. Much of the equipment on the stage had been modified from original Dan Lurie machines — even the pec deck machine on which he was lifted!

Two days after the event, Dan sent the following message: “What an enjoyable evening I had! I felt sorry for Sri Chinmoy. He worked so hard doing all those amazing and unbelievable feats of strength.”
