Video: Strongman deadlifts world-record 462kg; leaves Arnold Schwarzenegger hanging for a high-five
Don’t worry Arnie, we’re sure he’ll be back.
If you’re going to celebrate a weightlifting world record, we can’t think of too many better people to celebrate it with than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.
It would be akin to scoring the winner in a World Cup final and bumping chests with Lionel Messi afterwards.
English strongman Eddie Hall understandably got a little carried away after breaking the world record with a 462kg (approximately 73 stone!) deadlift at the Arnold Classic Australia 2015 event recently.
So carried away did he get, in fact, that he left Arnie hanging when he went for a high-five, only for Arnie to immediately recover in textbook fashion by turning it into a thumbs-up instead.
Arnie didn't seem to mind anyway, he even put the video on his Facebook page.
In fairness, would you take issue with a man who can deadlift a frankly obscene weight like that?
We didn’t think so.
