Unbelievable! Eddie Hall just lifted half a ton 500kg/1102lbs deadlift and cemented his name in the history books. No wonder they call him THE BEAST! Unfortunately the lift was a little too much for the big man to handle because while he did lift it successfully, he passed out after busting blood vessels in his head, which is not surprising considering the MASSIVE weight! Here’s the footage of the lift:
He uses straps and that’s the reason this isn’t considered to be the world record for the raw deadlift, but it’s still a very impressive lift. At the moment the only man who lifted a close weight (460kg) to this guy without straps is none other than the raw deadlift world record holder Benedikt Magnusson. Click here to watch him do it.
