Strongman Nick Best Deadlifts 500 Pounds for 50 Total Reps at Age 53

Every so often, an elite strongman reminds the world just how unique the top athletes in that sport really are. Since recovering from a torn tendon in his left lat sustained during a world record deadlift attempt of 370 kilograms (815.7 pounds) in the Masters Over 50 division at the 2021 Kern US Open (where he ranked third overall), Best’s recovery appears to have come along smoothly. So much so that he decided to perform a massive deadlift session in the home gym in his garage.
