Not so for Jennifer Thompson, who just benched a personal-best 325 pounds in front of the entire Liberty University football team without breaking so much as a sweat, according to SELF.
Let’s give it up for Thompson: When she isn’t busy being a mom or teaching a high school math class, the 43-year-old spends her time breaking weightlifting records at powerlifting competitions. She stands at 5’5” and competes in the 138-pound weight class, so naturally, she was probably pretty stoked to show up a bunch of beefy college football players.
And judging by their raucous applause in the clip, they were also pretty hyped to witness Thompson’s fitness feat.
