Strongman Athlete Eddie Hall Sets Deadlift Record While Arnold Schwarzenegger Cheers On



World’s Strongest Man athlete Eddie Hall, known widely as The Beast, was cheered on by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger as he set a new deadlift world record, lifting over an incredible 462kg, at the Arnold Classic event in Australia, a weight lifting convention organised by the seven-time Mr Olympia winner-turned Hollywood A-lister.

Much to The Terminator’s delight, Hall was able to hoist the gargantuan weight up to a vertical base, with a new record being set at a knee-shattering 462kg.


Once Hall’s straps have been untied form the bar, he too explodes into a bouncing mass of jubilation, but then does the unthinkable. He leaves Arnie hanging.


Afterwards, Hall said: “I had Arnold Schwarzenegger cheering me and he gave me a high five to congratulate me after the event – even though I left him hanging at first, oops!”
