VIDEO: An Ohio man is proving even though his body is different, he can do what everyone else can and more. Four times a week, Mike Diehl walks into Powerstation Gym, loads up the rack, concentrates on his breathing, and engages his core while working out.
He continues to push the limit with every press, pull and squat. With only one arm, he’s already stronger than most.
He holds the title of the second strongest disabled man in the world.
In March of 2015, the former firefighter was in an accident on duty and his arm was crushed by a firetruck. Four months later, he became an amputee.
It was only about three and a half years ago when Diehl decided to start competing in the sport of disabled strongman. He competes in a class with others who only have use of one arm.
