[quote]Undoubtedly impressive, however if they were able to use a bar that had no flex I doubt he`d get it off the ground. Because the bar flexes he isn`t lifting the full weight until the top of the dead lift. Lifting the full weight from the bottom of the lift would I suspect be too much.[/quote]

Possibly, although he does have to lift the full weight for much of the lift. Is the initial part of the lift significantly harder than the rest? I don`t know.

It`s still a valid comparison though, since anyone lifting anything like that weight has to use a bar that bends. It`s far too dangerous to use a rigid bar.

In case anyone is wondering why, it`s this: If a flexed bar fails it will bend, whereas a rigid bar might snap and may hurl splinters of metal with great force or impale the lifter with a suddenly jagged end of bar forced upwards by the suddenly falling weight on the end.

I was curious, so I looked for some measurements.

His chest is 58 inches. That`s almost 5 feet! He weighs 175-180 Kg. That`s two big men. Who he could probably lift with one hand.
