    You`re not supposed to use your arm in deadlift..
    However, was that a deadlift variation? He used a lot of back.

    "However, was that a deadlift variation? He used a lot of back."

    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.

    Take your legs out of the equation. Add a quick twisting-motion at the top.

    for my school`d deadlift, you stand in the middle of a rectangular bar with weights at the end. so the weight surrounds your body and its alot more physically hard than what he did. (form-wise, not wieght-wise)

    honestly, he didn`t lift it past even 180 degrees so it wasn`t even arm strength. I can lift a lot two by just hanging on and un-squating

    A deadlift is supposed to be leg and lower back strength. Nobody should be talking about his arms because they aren`t relevant to this lift.

    @moefreak "He could just like pick me up with one arm. Scary."

    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.

    Did they use tires to make the barbel look more impressive, since they`re less dense than weights and therefore a larger tire is needed for the same poundage? Or is there a reason for it?

    Either way, props. I don`t mind a little showmanship in the record attempts.

    "Did they use tires to make the barbel look more impressive, since they`re less dense than weights and therefore a larger tire is needed for the same poundage? Or is there a reason for it?"

    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.

    I`d imagine those tires are there for protection. So the floor doesn`t get damaged when he drops those weights.
