Thrillist turns weightlifting champion Kenneth Leverich into an old man and sends him to Muscle Beach - the legendary open-air gym in Venice, CA, where Schwarzenegger used to train - to confuse young bodybuilders.
Our double age-ent: Kenneth Leverich, a former Junior Olympic weightlifter and top SoCal Crossfit competitor who does even lift, bro -- 535lbs dead, precisely. We tapped Hollywood special effects guru Dan Gilbert to subject Leverich to 4 hours of prosthetics and make up. Then we made him wear a cardigan.
Watch as he puts Muscle Beach regulars to shame with feats of strength and other insane tricks, all in front of an ever-growing, ever-more-amazed crowd.
