Powerlifter Nearly Dies Breaking World Record
Over the weekend, human-bear hybrid Eddie Hall grabbed a metal bar with 1,102 lbs. fastened to it and lifted the damn thing off the ground. That's like picking up an entire Smart Car. That's like deadlifting a walrus. That's like, well, as it turns out, not a great idea.
"That nearly killed me," he said afterwards. "The pressure on my body was surreal. I passed out after. I had nose bleeds. It’s not healthy doing something like that."
Hall dropped to his knees as quickly as the weights he was holding, causing the crowd to go silent as medical personnel rushed to his aide.
So, uh, ya. As if you needed another reason, here's definitive proof that powerlifting the equivalent of four Dwight Howards isn't worth it. (You're better off dropping a few plates, dressing up like a grandpa and blowing everyone's mind.)
