“I’d love to be doing them injury free but there’s a certain satisfaction to doing them when you’re injured too,” explained the National School teacher. “It’s mind over matter in a lot of ways.”
World Gym founder Joe Gold, a mentor to people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Incredible Hulk actor, Lou Ferrigno, said after
he broke his first record: “Eamonn Keane has something I’ve never seen in another human being.”
“His one hour bench press of 305,300lbs is absolutely amazing and is a record that just might never be broken. It proves he is the greatest endurance strength athlete who has ever walked on planet Earth. He is 100 per cent natural and an Irish gentleman.”
