Back Lift by Derek Poundstone – 2008 Fortissimus

by Kilo on May 10, 2011

A 2,500 lb back lift from strongman Derek Poundstone at the 2008 Fortissimus. As I’ve looked back at this lift, I see claims of men like Louis Cyr lifting upwards of 6,000 lbs. I’ve also seen it called the thigh and backlift, with variations in the height of the weight’s placement.

Regardless, this is some crazy strength. I wonder if you just feel wrecked the next day? I suspect I’ll never know.
