Joe Weider’s coffin lifted 3 x 10 times before being lowered into ground

BODYBUILDING guru Joe Weider’s funeral service incorporated a bout of resistance training.

In accordance with Weider’s wishes, bearers did three sets of ten repetitions with his coffin before it was buried.

A source said: “Joe wanted the undertakers to really focus on their biceps, standing with their backs very straight and lifting his mortal remains through a 90 degree angle.

“Then family and close gym buddies went back to his house for a simple buffet of protein bars and isotonic drinks.”
