Feel the burn

We're going to file this one under, well, interesting, but according to the YMCA of Beaufort County a Guinness world record for weight lifting could fall this Sunday right here in Port Royal.

According to the Facebook post Richard Armstrong is looking to set the record for the most weight lifted over the course of an hour. 

We haven't been able to find the existing record, but according to the post he'll have to lift 180,000 pounds to set the record, that's 3,000 pounds per minute.

If you, like us, think this will be too good to miss, you can cheer Richard on by showing up at the YMCA at noon Sunday.
