In what has to be the coolest way to ever finish up two things, for the final time in your life, this Florida firefighter decided to combine the two.
Ed Kranski is in his 30th year as a firefighter and he’s ready to call it quits, but not before pulling off one of the craziest stunts ever.
50 yo firefighter. "Lights the Deadlift World on Fire" After 30 amazing years I retire this week so this will be my last deadlift and most likely my last fire as a firefighter so I thought it a fitting tribute to make some noise and "Light the Deadlift World on fire" 600 lbs of burning steel. It was MUCH harder with over 80 lbs of gear most of which was pushing down on my back. I also did not anticipate how much extra drag the thick puffy pants and pockets would cause. Unlike most fires I do not wish to extinguish this one. Help it grow into a raging inferno by liking, sharing and reposting. Captain Kranski is clocking out. Still the strongest deadlifting firefighter Florida has ever seen. Follow me as I will now focus on my lifting full time in pursuit of the over 50 World Record. https://instagram.com/p/BNp_J_zjZJb/ @deadlifttillimdead @pwrlft_community @mansports @powerliftingmotivation @pwrlft #deadlift #power #powerlifting #strongman #bodybuilding #crossfit #olympia #uspa #weightlifting #alphamale #fitness #gymlife #gainz #flex #train #muscle #fire #firefighter #fitover40 #fitover50 #motivation #inspiration #liftangry #justbringit #identifireusa
According to his Instagram, Kranksi is a national dead-lift record holder, which he is also bringing to an end. So, what better way to do so than to deadlift a 600 pound barbell, with the weights fully engulfed in flames. Oh, did we mention he’s decked out in all of his firefighting gear, which weighs 80 pounds?
The 50-year-old is definitely going out on his terms, and on those terms, who can compete?
