Shaw is a monster. When he came to our gym this summer, he pulled 900 lbs. without much of a struggle. Considering you can probably count the number of 900+ lb. raw (no deadlift suit) on two hands and have fingers left over, he makes it look easy and bets are on that he'll likely be the first to do 1000 lbs. without any assistance gear if he stays injury-free for the next few years.

The hummer tire deadlift is also quite impressive, but to note, the shortened ROM due to the tires definitely lets most people pull at least 100 lbs. over their conventional deadlift, as it's similar to doing a pull in the rack from a low pin setting. Not to take anything away from it, of course, just stating why the weight he did for that one was considerably higher than his other clips :)

Benedikt Magnusson actually pulled 1015 in just a belt about three years ago at Clash of the Titans. One of the most impressive feats of strength ever, IMO.

Correct, Benni did pull 1015, just that it doesn't hold as the "official" record as it wasn't at a sanctioned meet and sadly, the meet director who was there has a reputation for possibly using weights that aren't a heavy as they read (could possibly still be rumor, but it has been circulating for a few years now among many in powerlifting).

Regardless, Benni is by far one of the strongest out there, but I completely neglected to mention Andy Bolton's amazing 1008 lb. pull that may well hold as the world record for a very long time. Though, Coan's 901 pull @ 220 lbs. ranks as my favorite, you can't go wrong with DL that's over 4x bodyweight!

Benni's 1015/461 kg is respected as THE deadlift WR among powerlifters pretty much everywhere.
With those millions of federations, non-affiliated comps etc out there you just have to count whatever people do that gets passed in those meets.
Otherwise you'll end up having a lot of huge numbers not being accepted as WR despite being totally legit.

You'd be surprised how many people in the USA who compete don't hold Benni's record as official due to who put the meet on :wink: Katterle has a pretty bad reputation for not having accurate weights at competitions, it's still debated after all this time as nobody weighed out the bar + plates to make the weight official as happens often when there's question over legitimacy. Had he simply heeded that request from people who wanted to be sure everything was accurate (other competitors at the same event said that they were pulling PRs beyond expectation, and that the weights truthfully felt as though they may have been slightly light). I preferred how it was decades ago where ever world record lift had to be weighed out to ensure the integrity of it considering how often records claim to be broken, but either way, strong pull and I won't lose any sleep over it :D
