Female Bodybuilder, 82, Takes down Home Intruder (VIDEO)

An 82-year-old female bodybuilder fought back against a man who broke into her home on Thursday night as she was getting ready for bed, using her daily workout regimen and various household items to overwhelm the intruder.

Willie Murphy, who attends the Maplewood YMCA in Rochester, N.Y., on a daily basis, was getting ready for bed around 11:00 p.m. when a man started banging on the door asking for an ambulance, while declaring “I’m sick, I’m sick.”

“I hear a loud noise,” she told WHAM-TV. “I’m thinking, what the heck was that? The young man is in my home. He broke the door.”

The award-winning bodybuilder told the outlet she hid under the cover of night — picking up the nearest object — as the thief crept through her home.

“I picked up the table, and I went to work on him,” said Murphy, who can deadlift 225 pounds. ‘The table broke.”
