Rauno Heinla breaks 400kg (881lb) world record with 6 repetitions in 2020 World Ultimate The strongman “feat” event. He’s also one of the few professional powerhouses, including Thor “The Mountain” Bjornson and Eddie “The Beast” Hall, to have pulled 1,000 pounds. Heinla, the six-time Estonian strongest man champion, now has his sights set on the record 505kg: that’s a staggering 1,113lbs.
In his new video YouTube channel strongman Martins Licis – who has won the World’s Strongest Man and the Arnold Strongman Classic – travels to Heinla’s hometown in Estonia to meet He trained together for a few days to prepare for his next record-breaking attempt.
“There’s hardly an easier way to show the world what you’re really capable of,” Licis said. “Breaking a deadlift world record isn’t just about proving yourself to your peers; it’s about carving your name into the history of all power…I’m eager to get a sneak peek at the world record holder’s deadlift practice.”
Reinla was hoping to break his record while filming with Licis, but he ended up at 460 kg (1,014 lb) due to a previous log stress workout that exhausted his back result failed.
“It seemed to me that I was ready, but my body wasn’t ready for what I wanted to do today,” he said. “Okay, not bad, 450 [kg]…how many people can do that? But in my opinion, I plan to [lift 505] by tomorrow…I just need to take a week off and then we’ll do What I want to do today.”
