Hafthor Björnsson raised £ 1,104 relatively easily on Saturday.

Björnsson, the man who plays “The Mountain” on HBO’s “Game of Thrones”, set a world record for deadlifts on Saturday when he was the first man to lift more than 500 kg. He broke Eddie Hall’s nearly 4-year-old record of 1,102 pounds.

Just look how easy this 501 KG deadlift was.

There are many men and women who have been lifting for a long time and can only dream of gaining 500 pounds, let alone 500 KG. And Björnsson looked like he also had a handful of pounds in the tank.

Is it a legitimate world record?

Don’t hesitate, what Björnsson did on Saturday is one of the most bizarre forces in human history. But is it a ‘real’ world record?

the coronavirus pandemic, he completed the lift from his home gym in Iceland rather than during a scheduled game in Bahrain that was canceled. And Hall doesn’t think the conditions of Björnsson’s lift are worth a record as it didn’t happen during an actual match. “Data-reactid =” 24 “> Because of the coronavirus pandemic, he completed the lift from his home gym in Iceland rather than during a scheduled game in Bahrain that was canceled. And Hall doesn’t think the conditions of Björnsson’s lift are worth a record as it didn’t happen during an actual match.

Björnsson followed the competition rules, taking 15 minutes between each deadlift on Saturday, but Hall’s point is that only lifts that take place during competitions should count as records.

Hall told about Men’s Health in April. “He has had many opportunities – he could have done it in Dubai at the end of last year, in the strongest man in Europe [and at] Giants Live, it doesn’t feel right to me. Why not wait until this is over, until, I don’t know, October? “” Data-reactid = “26”> “We are entering this pandemic and there is nowhere to run and now he is going to do it in his home gym,” Hall told about Men’s Health in April. “He has had many opportunities – he could have done it in Dubai at the end of last year, in the strongest man in Europe [and at] Giants Live, it doesn’t feel right to me. Why not wait until this is over, until I don’t know October? “

It is worth noting that Hall and Björnsson have been arguing for a while. If your world record lift was officially or unofficially broken by a man you disliked, you would probably be salty about it too.
