Benedikt Magnusson, from Iceland, is the world record-holder for deadlift, lifting 1015 lbs/460 kg. Andy Bolton was the man he beat – the strongest European powerlifter ever, the first man ever to dead lift over 1000lbs / 453kg, whose PB at squat is 1213.6lbs/550.5kg. For guys who train to add size or sculpt aesthetics, these powerlifters illustrate a different approach to lifting weights, like never training to failure, and eating huge amounts of calories. These beasts of the gym may not be on the cover of the magazines, but as athletes, they are the best in the world at what they do.
