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:
As of now, Benedikt Magnusson holds the world record for the raw deadlift with a lift of 1015lbs/460kg. Yes I am aware of the 462kg lift of Eddie Hall but he used straps for that. Benedikt lifted 460kg with his bare hands and with no equipment aside from the belt.
