I`d imagine those tires are there for protection. So the floor doesn`t get damaged when he drops those weights.
I imagine they used the tires to lift the center (the bar) off the ground, making it easier for him to pick up just a teeny bit. Plus, it looks more impressive. I guess.
Either way, props. I don`t mind a little showmanship in the record attempts.
Well, if you weigh less that 550 lbs. (250 kg.), I`ll just bet he could.
I would point out, though, that he could not do this in a competition. By using tires instead of barbell weights, he starts with the bar higher off the ground than it would be for a regulation lift. Also, because of the flex in the bar, he`s not lifting the entire weight till the last two tires clear the ground, by which time he`s standing nearly straight. Still, the guy`s got stones.
also anything`s possible on steroids.
that`s not what a deadlift is.
Yeah, must`ve been like, 1100 lbs or something eh?
Very strong people need to be more cautious in order to avoid hurting people by mistake.
His technique may be unorthodox, but it clearly works.
It doesn`t look very safe, though. The health and safety people at my workplace would book him in for a training session on manual handling :)
Maybe he`s got a back like a gorilla and knows he can take the strain without injury.
damn he used a lot of back in that!!!
He probably crushed two of that guy`s fingers in that handshake.
You`re not supposed to use your arm in deadlift..However, was that a deadlift variation? He used a lot of back.
...following suit with the tyre puns :-)
