    Default Sub 200lb bodyweight 1000th deadlift?

    Does anyone know if anyone has done this? Deadlift 1000lbs while being 7 del 200lbs bodyweight wise? If no one has do you think it's even humanly possible?

    I love the deadlift and always dreamed of being able to pull a half ton but it doesn't seem like anyone who has is anywhere near 200lbs. Most are 240+

    861lb is the most a sub 200lb lifter has ever pulled, and I'm willing to bet he didn't do it in a drug tested federation.

    Edit: May be a lot higher on a hummer tyre deadlift, but can't be arsed trawling through the strongman records too.

    I don't count the hummer deadlift. Strictly convention or sumo style in any federation.

    It just seems like to get that extra 200lbs from 800 people have to almost be 100 lbs heavier. I would love to see a sub 200lb person pull a half ton but my research has come up with no one thus far.

    I wonder if it is even possible? Even with drugs.

    I suppose it could be, the problem is with drugs, people can be pretty damn lean at 200lbs (and a lot higher), why would someone want to sacrifice additional gains to stay below that arbitrary limit?

    I'm sure steroid technology will improve to the point where someone under 200lb deadlifts 1000lb, and if that's the case, you can be certain the squat and bench records will go out over 2000lb, all you need is a big enough spring (aka bench shirt, squat suit).

    It might be an arbitrary limit but it'll still be one impressive feat if ever done. I just think it's a lot more impressive for relatively lighter guys to lift heavy weights vs really big guys. It's like seeing an elephant push a tree over. It's impressive but at the same time it's an elephant , kind of expect that kind of thing from something so large.

    I'm just personally fascinated by power to weight. There are a couple guys benching 400 at my gym but at 300 lbs + it doesn't impress me as much as my friend who is a power lifter benching 350 at 205lbs.

    The only man to significantly break 1000 pounds is Benedikt Magnusson with 1015. Bolton hit 1003. A 200 pounder is not going to hit a grand.

    I don't think 200lbs guy could deadlift 1000lbs.
