This weekend I headed out to Columbus Ohio with Integrated Fitness for the Arnold Sports Festival. The Arnold Classic is one of the most prestigious titles in professional bodybuilding, and 2013 marked it’s 25th Anniversary. While at the Arnold Sports festival, I got to meet numerous fitness models, UFC fighters, and also was able to witness a world record deadlift live as Mark Felix pulled 1128 pounds!
Mark Felix shatters last year’s world record deadlift at the 2013 Arnold Strongman Competition. This incredible deadlift is 1128 pounds the heaviest deadlift in human history. Felix previously ripped off his shirt in celebration shattering the deadlift record by lifting 1122 pounds. He knew he had more in him and he destroyed the record he set just minutes earlier.
Mark Felix is a strongman competitor and regular entrant to the World’s Strongest Man Competition. Felix has won numerous international grip contests, including the Rolling Thunder World Championships in 2008 & 2009, as well as the Vice Grip Viking Challenge in 2011 and 2012. Felix has also held the Rolling Thunder world record since 2008, as well as the Captains of Crush “COC” Silver Bullet world record. Due largely in part to his grip achievements, Felix is widely regarded as having the strongest grip in the world.
