Wounded Warrior Derick Carver is an inspiration (and a beast)

By / 03.07.13

Three years ago, Derick Carver was injured in a near fatal IED attack while serving in Afghanistan. But a video of his intense and impressive workout at the 2013 Arnold Classic bodybuilding event — despite missing his left leg — will inspire you.

The effect of the war on Carver was notable. A 2011 Men’s Health profile reveals that attack on Carver resulted not only in a loss of his left leg almost up to his pelvis, but also 50% of his right thigh and significant damage to his reproductive organs.

The fact that Carver rebounded from that 2011 article to these levels of physical and emotional recovery — he’s currently opening a Crossfit location in Michigan — should probably serve as a motivational tool for you to get out there and do something.
