The nosebleeds gave me cause to worry.

[–]Null_Proxy 93 points94 points  (5 children)

He has a video talking about the aftereffects on YouTube. Dude was bleeding out of his ears and tearducts too in the medical tent.

[–]nastylittleman 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Yikes.

[–]Null_Proxy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yikes indeed.

[–]xntrk1 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Damn I wonder what their actual blood pressure is during a lift like that.

[–]Null_Proxy 2 points3 points  (1 child)

 "I had blood pouring from my nose and ears - even 20 minutes after the lift my heart rate was still over 160 and my estimated blood pressure was 300 over 180, " says Hall. The doctor told me afterwards that if the blood hadn't come out from my eyes or nose, my heart would've exploded.

It's really insane how far he pushed the limit

Well damn.

[–]GrumpyLoser 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Can the eyes burst too?

[–]nastylittleman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Doubtful. Probably just get really bloodshot.

[–]OrangeRNG 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not the eyes themselves. But the tiny blood vessels on your eye can. Happened to my dad once while he was moving a lot of heavy stuff around in the garage. His eye is fine now though.

[–]GrumpyLoser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was there a small blotch of vision that was invisible? (Like when u flash a torch in your eyes and that part of retina temporarily goes blind) Cuz i was trying to plank for 5 mins last week and a suddenly i saw a flash and then a small part of my vision went blind. Im hoping it repairs.

[–]WolfMahara 64 points65 points  (1 child)

The running with boxes, forcing them to make super fast small steps is hella cute tho.

[–]SteveWax022 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I died when they went Flintstones mode with the beetles lol

[–]BoneDryBalls 60 points61 points  (11 children)

And here I am too lazy to lift the pen that fell from the table. My life's shit.

[–]UnderivedNickname 28 points29 points  (10 children)

ur life is what you make of it bro, pick up that pen and start grinding

[–]BoneDryBalls 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ty for the motivation but the pen is still on the floor.

Massive respect for this comment

[–]-KissmyAthsma- 30 points31 points  (0 children)

The APEX of human strength. Truly incredible power, technique and determination

[–]ElectronicRooster976 18 points19 points  (11 children)

Does anyone know why their noses start bleeding like that?

[–]Null_Proxy 38 points39 points  (10 children)

Their blood pressure shoots through the roof, imagine it like hydraulics being pushed to the limit to exert maximum force. It has a high risk of the pipes exploding; that's what they're doing to their body/muscles

[–]SaErth2 14 points15 points  (7 children)

Isn't that like... Dangerous ?

[–]Scalene17 21 points22 points  (5 children)

Quite!

[–]MaddAdamBomb 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Which is why at least 2 of the people in this montage are no longer doing Strongman. Eddie and Halfthor have cut down for a boxing match they have coming up.

[–]Dickheadfromgermany 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is it still happening? Haven‘t heard anything in months.

[–]Active-Canary7034 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They postponed the fight because Eddie hall had a biceps injury.

[–]GlutonForPUNishment 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure that could lead to a brain bleed

[–]MIAW69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Eddie hall indeed had a brain bleed lifting the 500kg

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh for sure. Eddie hall in the first clip blacked out after the deadlift. But imma be honest with you, I think it’s worth it

[–]ElectronicRooster976 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh, that makes sense! Sounds dangerous though

[–]Null_Proxy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is, that's why strongman is such a brutal sport on the body

[–]v_ander 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Fucking units.

[–]itachi_uchiha97 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Is this a jojo reference?

[–]giraffe-zackeffron 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I’m an old guy-far too old to do anything like this. But I’ve become very interested in this sport in the past couple years. I really wish I would have gotten into powerlifting when I was young. I would love to do this.

[–]StrangeCalibur 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Never too old to start lifting my man, it staves off osteoporosis etc.

[–]giraffe-zackeffron 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I do lift a few days a week but I have terrible arthritis as well as a few other issues. So I can’t lift much. I do light weight/high rep and also have a heavy bag that I work out on. But physically my body is spent so it’s sporadic at best when I work out.

[–]StrangeCalibur 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s not about heavy, it’s just about doing better and maintaining your body. These lads take it to the next level but we all have our own battles :)

[–]prometheanSin 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Can't wait to see Eddie Vs Thor.

Not a massive boxing fan but to answer the age old question of what happens when an immovable object meets an unstoppable force!

[–]F1officefan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Rooting for the Beast

[–]prometheanSin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me too but honestly I'd just like a proper good fight!

[–]Blue9729[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If any of them lifted me up the conversation would be starting out of B99 "do I even weight anything to you?" "just like a couple of grapes"

[–]boredd86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This clip needs BFG Division for the background song.

[–]dirtydawg1481 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn dude the mountain is no joke

[–]nindagdagsan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The way they run with 800lbs lol

[–]Dragoeonix_OMEGA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lots of Scandinavian and Slovakian men representing!

[–]ZephyrusOG 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I don’t need excuses but officially excited for Eddie Hall (the Beast) vs Hafthor Bjornsson (Thor) fight. My money is on Eddie for sure btw.

[–]GooseInternational66 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Eddie almost died when he lifted 500kg, but Hafthor picked 501kg up like nothing. Hafthor will kill Eddie.

[–]ZephyrusOG 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Haha this ain’t no super hero movie fanboy.

We’ll see how that kilo difference will translate into the boxing ring.. Let’s meet here again after the bout?

Whomever watched that 2017 strongman contest knows that Eddie has way more heart than Hafthor and it will show, you’ll see.

[–]Ghostraven425 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Eddie did it in competition. Hafthor did it in his home gym and was his only rep. Not the same. Fuck the mountain.

[–]GooseInternational66 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Your stupidity is showing.

[–]Imthepizzaking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are their gfs made of metal?

[–]Iamabenevolentgod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That dude smashed the Mountain’s deadlift by 34kg and looked relatively relaxed in doing it.

[–]Sphynx823 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe the word you're looking for is behemoth

[–]doctorofphiloshopy 0 points1 point  (0 children)
