I was not at the event but I do know James personally and at 44 years of age he is still getting stronger.
A World Record is great but I think we can all see the goal here is a 1000lb pull which is 455kg – I think with a good run of training that’s definitely possible.
It’s impressive to see someone more mature still progressing at what is quite an elite level!
That is beastly
If he’s 44 I’m 21
Very impressive but I shudder to imagine the sacrifices one has to make to reach that level at that age.
Is it bad for ur arms to pull up that much weight just curious if u could pull ur arms off
Always lift with your back!
I thought the record was already over 1000
That guy is 44? Damn
No reds on that lockout? Hips didn’t seem to come forward from this angle.
44 going on 61
Pffft. My buddy Jack can do that easily.
His first name is Hydraulic.
And he still didnt drop the weight like a crossfitter
I see videos like this it makes me wonder what the maximum weight that the bar can carry is, without bending to the ground at least. Assuming it bends rather than snaps.
Those weights look really thin for the amount of weight each of them must carry
Damn and he doesn’t look even half as big as I’d expect him to.
That’s slightly heavier then Guts sword in berserk
Big weight but not sure that would get white lights, no lockout and downward motion
How often do power lifters like that burst a blood vessel?
That’s not even that much.
Honest question but why do people do this?
I mean it’s impractical lifting like that in daily life is quite rare.
Is it just a showmanship type thing?
It’s a lot of weight and quite impressive for 44 let alone anyone.
Doesn’t look that heavy to me
