Marcello Ferri "500kg Deadlift"

Ok guys, I haven’posted in a long while, but I really must share this.
After many years I thought that I’d seen it all, from quarter squats to doped 13 years old cyclists, but yesterday I bumped into something special.
This guy’s videos are a goldmine.
I don’t know whether one should be happy to admire this funny show, or terrified at the thought of the delusions he suffers from. It’s like watching a lion kill a gazelle: it’s fascinating and horrible at the same time.
I wish you all knew Italian, to grasp the captions, the live comments of the videos.
There you go, I hope it makes you smile.

500 kg Deadlift…

200 kg Good Mornings…

Edited for grammar.

I pushed against a tree today while mowing the yard.
Pretty sure it was equal to an 800# incline press without a bench shirt.

Sorry no pic as l dropped phone pulling starter cable.

To be fair, he was training to break a deadlift world record in which he had to hold 100kg max time

Is this a serious post on what he was doing? Because he wasn’t training right for that goal either.

And that was with only a few months of training.

I like how he locks out but the bar never leaves the supports.

“To be fair, his end goal was even more disconnected with this nonsense than you could possibly imagine.”

All I see in here is a bunch of haters :stuck_out_tongue:

One thing that surprises me is that “standard” barbell didn’t snap in two with that kind of weight.
