Powerlifter Sets Personal Record: Buys Groceries Without Motorized Cart

Amateur powerlifter Freddy Judkins has set a new personal record, completing 20 minutes of personal grocery shopping without the use of a motorized cart.

“I wanted to challenge myself,” Judkins told The Overheard Press. “Climbing the stairs from the basement of my mom’s house where I sleep to the kitchen is usually all I do for cardio.”

Witnesses say a sweaty and red-faced Judkins was first seen shuffling through the produce section. He stopped only once, not to choose from the array of fresh fruits and vegetables around him, but to catch his breath as he moved forward toward the bakery section.

“I’m not sure I’ll do that again,” Judkins admitted. “Walking that far is the kind of high-rep training that kills squat gains.”
