    I don't know I think it's less than that.
    Unless I'm missing something, I counted 16 45lb plates, and in the second lift, those extra weights can't be more than 2 x 25lb plates, if not 10lb.
    I'm guessing he lifted about 810lbs...but like I said I might be missing something.

    Regardless, thats ridiculously insane. Out of every exercise I do, I do the least weight on deadlifts. I'm too afraid of injury, so I just do enough weight to strain to about 10 per set.

    Edit: Just realized, the weights might be different sizes where he's lifting.

    thats crazy. Pretty sure Olympic bars are made to handle MAX 1000lbs too, so he's basically pushing the limits.
    I saw a guy at the gym doing 4 x 45lb plates on each side the other day and thought that was nuts...

    That's no biggie. I heard GG did that at the grand opening of his new GNC store.

    This guy is wearing a deadlift suit which will give you about 275lbs on your lift...

    Fuck man I can't imagine doing that much. I like to lift heavy, but when it comes to deadlifts I never push it. I'm always afraid im going to pull my back. I usually just keep it at about 275 for about 10-12 reps per set.

    I can't deadlift to save my life. I don't even try it cause my form is bad and I hurt my back doing power klines (spelling) one time. What are the benefits of deadlift? Aren't squats more functional? I started lifting a little again. I want to keep my strength up but I want it to be functional since I grapple. I love when a body builder comes in and you just chew them up when you're about half as strong as them of course a guy who deadlifts probably had more functional strength then the guy from the gym who focuses on biceps.
