You do not give much information. We would like to know how your disks are partitioned by the output of
(and please computer output between CODE tags).
But most important you tell that you “attempt to resize the 70.57 MB partition, it tells me that 70.57 mb is the max …”. But you do NOT tell us what you use trying this, nor what IT is saying exactly. How can we make any comment about IT, your usage of IT and IT’s answer without either using a crystal ball or sitting behind you looking over your shoulder.

Short answer: NO.
Long answer: Yes. How? Delete the entire disk (ALL), create all partitions again.
Doubtful and long answer: resize using a resizing tool.
Assuming you are going to give it space coming from sda3, then that tool has to: 1) make sda3
smaller. 2) Move the start of sda3 up. 3) move sda2 up. 4) Move the end of sda1 up (it is not the
only combination). 5) and do that while maintaining filesystem consistency for all, including the
LVM setup. Good luck with that. >:-)
(Advise done by using my propietary (ie, miiiine!) crystal ball. The exact partition layout that hcw
requested would serve to confirm or disregard this).
