THE MOUNTAIN MAKES UNOFFICIAL WORLD RECORD BY DEADLIFTING 1058 lbs/480Kg




Hafpór Júlíus Björnsson , born 26 November1988) an lcelandic professional strongman recently deadlifted 1058 Lbs and set an unofficial world record.


Björnsson just hit a personal deadlift record, according to his Instagram. Since he currently
holds the top mark in the world of doing deadlift without the aid of a deadlift suit, that would apparently make this lift a world record.

Even though the lift was made  in absense of any officials to certify  the achievement.  Still the lift is remarkable 1058lbs/480kg. This is a heaviest lift ever done with an elephant bar. For those outside of heavy lifting circles, an Elephant Bar is an
extra large barbell designed by Rogue specifically for the massive loads.

Unlike standard barbells, which weigh 45 pounds and measure 7 feet long. the Elephant Bar weighs 65 pounds and is 9 feet, 7 inches long  with extra long cuffs to hold more plates.

And while the lift may not hit the official record books. Careful onlookers may know that he previously  pulled off deadlift of 473 kilograms (1,043 pounds).


Those who don't know about Hafpór Júlíus Björnsson, he was the first person to win the Arinold
Strongman Classic, Europe's Strongest Man and World's Strongest Man in the same calendar year  Hei.e 2012. He also played  "The Mountain" in the popular HBO series Game of Thrones for five seasons.
