If you’re going to break a world record in weightlifting[1] at the Arnold Classic, it only makes sense for Arnold Schwarzenegger to be there himself to cheer you on. Meet Eddie Hall!


Like former U.S. Marine officer George Hood who held the longest plank ever and the 99-year-old woman who ran a race, Hall also showcased some incredible physical capabilities when he lifted a shocking 462kg (or 1018.5lbs.) at the Arnold Classic event in Australia. (Yes, you read that correctly!)

What made the achievement even more monumental was having former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger right by his side.

“That moment when you pull a WORLD RECORD dead lift 462kg and @Schwarzenegger is cheering you on. PRICELESS!” the English strongman competitor tweeted after the event.

Watch this monumental feat in the video below. Congratulations to Eddie Hall!
