Eddie has shared some “behind the scenes” footage and info from the legendary day when he became the first human to deadlift 500kg.
The story off Eddie’s deadlift has been told, re-told and re-told again thousands of times by now. But, since you are already reading this, let’s refresh our memories. In 2015, he pulled 463kg like it was nothing for a then-world record and set his sights on larger goals.
