Anyone who works out who knows, if you lift heavy and explosively, as soon as you drop the weight you could very well see stars. Well an extreme case of that happened to Eddie Hall, who beasted a world record, but almost died in the process.
Hall was competing in World Deadlift Championships in the UK on Saturday, and managed to get a staggering 500KG off the ground.
But afterwards collapsed.
“That nearly killed me,” Hall told the Yorkshire Evening Post. “The pressure on my body was surreal. I passed out after. I had nose bleeds. It’s not healthy doing something like that. But I’ve done it. I’m sure it will be in the history books for a very long time.”
