Deadlift Record Broken by the Mountain

In the News

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52512211

Game of Thrones actor Hafthor Bjornsson has set a world deadlifting record by lifting 501 kg (1,104 lbs) - not bad for someone who previously won the World's Strongest Man competition in 2018.

Do you deadlift? How much can you do? I’ve been told most should be able to do at least your own weight...not sure I can do that, as I’m unable to even do a chin up

The ‘Mountain’ is 31 height 2.05m/6’9” and weight 205kg/452lb lifts 501kg/1104lb

My OH is 63 height 1.77m/5’10” and weight 84kg/185lb and lifts 170kg/375lb - think he’s doing ok.

Wow your OH is strong! That’s an impressive amount to deadlift! I’ve tried so many times to get into weight training but I’ve always preferred cardio

I don’t think he’ll like you telling people he’s only 1.55m!

Johnny You're obviously the only one who actually reads nobody else noticed the typo. He is 5'10 (I'll stick to 'old' money)

I once lifted a TV but Curry's security caught up with me in the car park.

CRT or Slim? I doubt you'd be able to lift a Samsung HD CRT TV (I can't it's too much for me). Those things are ridiculously heavy, but great for older devices.

PhilipMarc I wouldn't able to walk today if I'd tried to lift a CRT TV. Those things just before LCD became the norm were insanely heavy as you say!
