    Thor pulls 480kg RAW on elephant bar. 20kg off Eddie Hall record

    Hall used a suit, straps, and a texas power bar for the 500kg. Thor pulls 480 with just straps and an elephant bar.

    Eddie has said an elephant bar is the pussies way out and that "they're having to create bars to make it easier"

    Thoughts on that?

    Actual lift at 8:50

    Starting stats: 5"11, 130lbs @ age 16.

    Current stats: 6"2, 215lbs.

    The 8th and final rule: If this is your first night at Gym Club....... you have to squat.

    Power Bar or Deadlift Bar? The 500kg pull didn't have squat knurling in the center like a normal power bar.

    Never pulled on an elephant bar but will agree pulling a power bar and deadlift bar are two different ball games. To the point that 50+ lbs could go up as an intermediate lifter, let alone elite.

    Dr. Deadlift brah had a vid comparing power bar to dl bar and he mentions no difference up to like 800 pounds. A bigger factor is competition plates vs normal plates.
    Not sure how someone can consider an elephant bar equivalent to anything. Just look at it. It’s a mile long and the collars are extended out towards the end to keep the weight on the ends of the bar.

    Hi. Please pay attention to the topic. It’s deadlift bar vs elephant bar not “is this an impressive lift”. No one is saying it’s a **** lift.

    In 2016 at his peak the same year he hit 500kg he pulled 465kg on the elephant bar with no suit. Hafthor pulled 9kg more for the Arnold record on that bar last year.

    I'm surprised so many of Eddie's nuthuggers are refusing to acknowledge he did not pull 500kg on a "stiff" bar. I'm seeing "Olympic bar" thrown around in the comments of these videos. It was a Texas deadlift bar and yes it flexed a lot before the last plates left the floor. Watch the video. He also used a deadlift suit and figure 8 straps which are not allowed at the Arnold.

    Not that it matters but the guy is also half a foot shorter so he's not pulling it as far to lockout.



    Thor is absolutely at that level and the fact he's doing it without passing out on the floor shows he's got more in reserve.

    It’s equally impressive.

    Eddie should have pulled 500+ on the elephant bar instead of his 465. Eddies 500 was done with figure 8 straps and a deadlift suit using a deadlift bar (so not a powerbar). Imo he should stfu, he’s coming off as really butthurt.

    Impressive, but still not quite there at the level of a 500kg deadlift. Until he does it, he doesnt have the record and thats that. He can keep his copecel records tho
    "The flowers bloom, then wither... The stars shine and one day become extinct. This earth, the sun, the galaxies and even the big universe, someday will be destroyed. Compared with that, the human life is only a blink, just a little time. In that short time - people are born, laugh, cry, fight, are injured, feel joy, sadness, hate someone, love someone. All in just a moment. And then, are embraced by the eternal sleep called death."
