    I went to this last year and some monster from Iceland pulled a 1015 deadlift.There were several others that were also impressive as Hell too.Guys benching 500 for their warm ups it was crazy.I never felt so small in my life.If you`re from Texas any where close to the Metroplex you should check it out.See you there

    sally and i will be there covering all the action. MHP really stepped up for HCP and put some cash on the table for these guys.

    last year saw benedikt magnusson pull the biggest deadlift in history (raw or equipped) in history with 1,015lbs. shorts, a tshirt and a belt. that it.
