That is 4 pounds over Bolton's record, but it's not a competition lift. It looked pretty damn easy for him though.

Holy smokes. That would pass in any comp. That looked way too easy. I'll bet he could pull a grand.

****. Talk about inspiration. That makes me want to cut out of work early and go deadlift.

yeah, he pulled that fairly quickly. No big form breakdown either.

22, jesus. that guy can't be natty, can he?

No, he's certainly not, but that takes nothing away from his pull.

Awesome!

Is he getting an extra inch from the bumper plates he's using on the inside? That'll help for a few pounds.

Regardless, unreal strength!

So thats what, three, maybe four full-grown members of his species he can pick up? Yea. Weightlifting is good.

i like how he takes a big ass handful of chalk and knocks the thing over while he's getting pumped up then tip-toes/prances to the bar haha

jack_of_all
10-19-2005, 04:07 PM
i wonder how much he'll be pulling in a decade.

WillKuenzel
10-19-2005, 04:47 PM
The only thing I wonder about is that he pulls the bar back and you can still see the plates rolling as he pulls it up. I wonder if there is anything saying that you have to pull the bar from a stopped position. Hate to see a lift like that get red-lighted for a techinicality like that. Either way, that is a helluva lift. Like to see what he'll be doing in a couple of years.

I'm pretty sure its legal to lift like that.
I had a vid before of _______(Garry frank?) doing a lift like that and it counted.

It might vary by federation, but as far as I know that's legal in all that I've seen.

Cool video, what a great lock-out, massive grip strength !!

Adam
10-19-2005, 08:10 PM
And the scary thing is that he is still a junior!
He's got another 1+ years to do some record smashing......then he can smash the mens open records:D

biggimp
10-19-2005, 09:34 PM
wow he must have grip from God Himself. a lot of the other top deadlifters could be up there if it werent for their grip. thats just sick.

That guy is my hero. Deadlifting is my specialty....I now have something to push (or pull in this case) for.

You can pull/roll the bar back. The only rule I know of is that it can't go down once it starts to go up.

what hurts me the most is looking closely at his shins. He slips that weight down his quads and shins like it was nothing.

10-20-2005, 09:54 AM
That's amazing. I had no sound though when I watched it because I watched it at school. That was pretty funny too the way he psyched up. I'm gonna watch it again at home with sound.

maybe you dont have the right codec? It worked for me just fine


OMG that guy is crazy, i cant beleive he hit that pull and than held it while looking around as if to say yeah this **** is lightweight.. One of the most insane pulls ive ever seen

David

That kid puts Ronnie Colemans's deadlifts to shame.

Gives the phrase "ightweight" a whole new meaning.

Watched it again at home. That was awesome. How did he hold onto it for so long after the pull?

Someone said thats Magnus ver Magnussen in the background. WSM champ, competitor..... and this guy is the cousin or something. I would get close to exit door if he where lifting at my gym... what would he do if he missed?

I can deadlift 939...In one set!

MixmasterNash
11-07-2005, 11:09 AM
From Ironmind:
Magnus ver reported, "Benedikt Magnusson deadlifted a new world reckord 440kg/970lbs the biggest deddlift in histori at the Helsinki WPO event. He took token openers on the squat and bench and opened the deddlift with a new reckord 426 kg, then Andi Bolton broke Benidikts new set reckord by pulling 427,5 kg but had no answer to Benidikts 440, Benidikt even pulled 455kg/1003lbs! Up to the knees. So Benidikt Magnusson is the worlds strongest deddlifter."

Not to take ANYTHING away from how amazing Magnusson is, but Andy Bolton pulling 427 is just as incredible assuming he had three heavy squats and three heavy benches before it.

MixmasterNash
11-09-2005, 07:52 AM
2nd highest total ever, for Bolton, I believe.

You are correct sir, I am not 100% sure of his numbers But i believe he hit a 640 bench and 1100 squat.. So yeah these were no token lifts by Bolton..

He was playing AC/DC in the backround, that is just hilarious..

I can't remember off the top of my head, but Bolton broke a 2700 total. Ridiculous.

Donnie Thompson cleared 2500 with plenty to spare, too.

yeah borris that sounds about right since he pulled around 960 and with his other 2 lifts that puts him right at 2700, Although I believe it to be more like 2760 total.

To be honest that pull Benedikt had is amazing but I wonder if he would have been able to get that pull If he had put up lifts like Bolton..

11-10-2005, 09:36 AM
bennie did token lifts on the squat and bench press. and no bolton didnt total 2760 it was more like 2717

Rex

Whats a token lift? 400 bench 700 squat?

body
11-10-2005, 03:11 PM
Whats a token lift? 400 bench 700 squat?

I thought he lifted a benni lifted a little less on the bench and squat.

But those lifts are token lifts when bolten did 633 bench and 1146 squat.

not saying a 400 bench or 700 squat is light. But he probably lifted a lot more on the bench and especially the squat.
a 300 pound deadlift higher than squat is rare especially when equipped.

Rex
11-10-2005, 03:26 PM
So this Benni guy didn't even press 400, squat 700?

I'm serious, that is what I would consider "token" from a man who can deadlift close to 1,000 pounds...

He was only there to break the world record in the deadlift.

The song in the background of the Benni vid is Prodigy - Voodoo People. Good song.

Anyway, that DL is freaking IMPRESSIVE. Over twice what I can do, and some people would actually consider ME strong!!!
