I’m convinced — Eddie Hall clearly isn’t lifting weights, he’s just pushing the earth down with his legs.
The reigning UK’s Strongest Man clocks in at a massive 182 kg. (that’s 401 lb.) and is in peak physical condition but even he found the 500 kg weight he needed to break his own previous world record daunting. Still, on July 9th, Eddie Hall managed the massive 500 kg strongman deadlift, shortly before collapsing in front of the cameras.
500 kg., folks. A whole 1102.31 lbs., to be exact. That’s the average weight of a female giraffe.
