The Mountain eases into Day 2 of the 2020 Arnold Strongman Classic with an opening statement in the Elephant Bar Deadlift, making quick work of 961 LBS. Having won the Arnold the past two years, Hafthor Bjornsson remains the man with the target on his back in these final events, and as his competitors will learn, 961 LBS isn't even close to his ceiling.

  • I wonder how they ramp up their steroid cycle when coming up to these contests. Doubt you could blast year round unless you where shooting grams of gear. You only peak for so long in strength on a cylce and with the way the contests are spread out it just doesn't make sense

    • Opeon1 - just ask him next time you bump into him. Forget those silly stories about his volcanic temper off camera! Also, don’t sweat any of that chatter about him being big or able to really hurt someone ... the guy is a big cupcake. As a matter of fact, he also likes to be called cupcake ... yeah ... that’s his nickname see? Yeah, that’s the ticket ... he likes to be called cupcake. Lemme know how you make out ...

    • Nah strongmen have big bellies because they eat an ungodly amount of food to maximize their strength.

      KragatarKragatar8 måneder siden
    • It's not like his belly could be "popping out" because he eats over 10.000kcal per day, huh?

    • @New New He's actually 200kg at the moment. If you follow his channel, he's been gaining weight over the last few months for this contest, WUS and WSM. He's not this heavy all year round. And let's not kid ourselves, Captain Wolf, nearly all sports have an issue with PED's

  • Mark my words he will not do 501 at WUS, not this year and i would bet on it. Speeking as a true Eddie Hall fan 💪😁

    • @Mirza Čaušević You are not a true sport fan if you dont want an athlete to achieve a new world record. Stick to watching videos on youtube, people like you are a cancer to the sport.

      Marcos CaboMarcos Cabo8 måneder siden
    • Of course you're an Eddie Hall fan(boy), otherwise you wouldn't even mention it 🙄 Thor is definitely in reaching distance of the 501kg, he already did 480kg on an elephant bar + powerlifting plates (less flex), and that without a suit. Speaking as a fan of the sport.

    • @Abc it is easy as one two three i hope he dont do it, i like eddie hall more than him 😅

      Mirza ČauševićMirza Čaušević8 måneder siden
    • He will do it, eddie did it with suit, suit is allowed in wus, it gives you like about 30kgs, but it will be a different bar, the same that eddie used when he pulled 500

  • Kids need to stop with this 500 kilo or nothing nonsense. Eddie's record was not up for grabs here, this was an elephant bar. And just because the lifts were under a thousand doesn't mean it was a bad event. Anyone who thinks it was boring is not a lifter, don't watch, quit lifting and stop taking up space in gyms, if you thought it was boring your going to quit anyways do it now.

      BTICronoxBTICronox8 måneder siden
  • To all the non-lifters complaining about that he did not attempt 501 - this is a full comp, the deadlift is the 4th event and therefore 465kg is just an unbelievable lift.

      Gian SanguinettiGian Sanguinetti8 måneder siden
    • The problem is that he said that he wold break the 501 record on the elephant bar at Arnold and in Dubai going for 501 on normal bar. That's why all the complaining. Check his video.

      Jorge LourençoJorge Lourenço8 måneder siden
    • @Gian Sanguinetti He didnt need to lift any heavier, he had already won the event. He wasnt going to try the 501, so there was no point in going any heavier than 465.

      Mr.762Mr.7628 måneder siden
    • @El Chapo he said he would not attempt the 501 with this bar due to him being depleted as it's day 2. The other upside in doing it at WUS is the bar would be the same as Eddie's, getting rid of any debate over which bar is "easier" I guess.

  • Lol he lifted more in training than the competition. Kinda boring. That happens when you have the Arnold without Brian Shaw.

    TraylayTraylay8 måneder siden
    • No, that happens when you already won the event and when you had 3 events the day before. People like you lack brain cells.

      Marcos CaboMarcos Cabo8 måneder siden
    • He's smart. You only do what you need to do and no more. Save your big lift for WUS and possible $100k.

    • @Erick P Its not that easy when you are above 2m height. Probably bjornnson (2'06) has to lift the bar more than eddie (1'90). Also, everyone knows eddie wont lift over 500 never more...
