World Record Deadlift 1128 pounds- World's Strongest man- Footage

Mark Felix shatters last year's world record deadlift at the 2013 Arnold Strongman. This incredible deadlift is 1128 pounds the heaviest deadlift in human history. Mark previously ripped off his shirt in celebration at shattering the deadlift record by lifting 1122 pounds. He knew he had more in him and he destroyed the record he set just minutes earlier.

Jason, its not so much the bar height, only looks an inch higher that traditional but I watched the video in slow-mo and there is so much bar bend with the weight being so WIDE that the last tire comes off the ground when the bar is above his knee, so we would call them lock outs.
Nevertheless, impressive strength and I think he's in his mid 40s so he also has oldman strength.

gotcha. and that's the next variable that I was going to mention!!

Very impressive. Not a competition deadlift (way too much bar bend, straps, etc) but an extraordinary display of strength. And as for that "oldman" thing, I pulled my best deadlift ever a little over a year ago, at the "young" age of 49. My first competition was at age 20

great job ! but i have a question he is a very tall man if you were a shorter lifter say 5ft 6 how would you get the last tire off the ground due to the bar bend, anyone ever think about this?

When a shorter lifter has issues they can opt to stand on a platform

Yes, but there has never been a 5'6" guy who qualified for this contest and there probably never will be!
