Default Andy Bolton beats his record deadlift...

A few days ago Andy Bolton beat his old record deadlift (1003 lbs) by lifting 1008 lbs.

Here's the clip on youtube:

He kinda looks like fred flintstone

Btw, all the gymnastics/skinny people/strength-to-weight ratio people are just going to say it's only a 2.72xBW lift, since he weighs about 370 lbs :P

Awesome lifter, king of deads, king of WPO SHW division... I think, Donnie Thompson competes in the IPA these days? At least that's where he set his 2905 lbs total a while ago... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qROD-wQ4SKg
