    • The steroid intake and his sheer mass will be detrimental to a long life. He’s living it to the fullest though which is what matters and once he quits and diets down he can hopefully go on and have a long and healthy future. Unfortunately pushing yourself so hard will always have repercussions. It’s the same in most sports, few retired top level athletes won’t have a litany of old injuries to deal with.

    • @Simon Roy I think WUS is going to have Deadlift as the first event so Thor will be less worn out. And considering the fact that he's already lifted 480 in training. 501 might be a possibility.

Eddie, although a tad bit smaller than Thor when he set the record, has shorter limbs therefore the distance the bar has to travel is smaller than in Thor's case. Use that dusty brain of yours sometimes will ya

    • I think thor likely does over 501kg in training, on camera he did 480kg while martins was training there (thats not a coincidence, he was showing him who was the top dog) but it didnt look too hard for him, didn't almost die.

      NJK570NJK5708 måneder siden
    • @NJK570 It wasn't a straight bar, stop spreading lies. Eddie had that bar made specifically for that lift, so it was perfectly calibrated to him personally. That's a huge advantage. He also wore a suit, and 8-straps. Eddie's max on the elephant bar is 465, and when he pulled that (2016 and 2017), he was hitching and jerking like crazy. Without the assistance and the personalized bar, Hafthor is the better deadlifter.

      Straight White MaleStraight White Male8 måneder siden

Yesterday they were lifting multiple stones weighing hundreds of lbs, throwing bags over a bar the height of a double decker bus, and then pushing an instrument weighing 20,000lbs as far as possible.
