The one two folks to ever deadlift that a lot weight are 2017 World’s Strongest Man Champion (WSM) Eddie Corridor and 2018 WSM Champion Hafthor Björnsson. Notably, each achieved their legendary pulls from a standard stance whereas sporting deadlift fits and lifting straps — which is allowed in a strongman competitors.

Given his fast progress of late, Wierzbicki’s entry into the 500-kilogram deadlift membership appears inevitable.

Lastly, in what’s more and more turning into a typical deadlift step up for Wierzbicki, he just lately pulled 461 kilograms (1,016 kilos) throughout one other exercise

All 4 of Wierzbicki’s talked about pulls had been from a sumo stance. His newest 490-kilogram deadlift (1,080 kilos) coaching feat is one other huge step towards that lofty 500-kilogram (1,102-pound) objective. 

Again and Forth 

The 110-kilogram powerlifting weight class seems to have a two-person deadlift tug of warfare for the report books. Whereas Wierzbicki continues to cost alongside towards astonishing, seldom-seen numbers, American powerlifter Jamal Browner has usually saved up with the meteoric tempo.

An approximate month later, on April 20, 2022, Browner locked out 409.6 kilograms (903 kilos) for 2 reps.

Within the 110-kilogram weight class, Browner additionally possesses an all-time deadlift world report — a 440.4-kilogram pull (971-pound) from the 2020 World Uncooked Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) Hybrid Showdown II.

Magnùsson competed within the tremendous heavyweight class (319+ kilos; unrestricted weight).

Wierzbicki nonetheless has to make progress along with his standard deadlift (not less than in public), however at any time when he decides to compete once more, he would possibly beat Browner to the punch and break Magnùsson’s report. Membership to the 500-kilogram membership doubtless gained’t observe lengthy after. Discuss killing two important strength-sports birds with one stone.
