Lewis Byng Deadlifts Huge 400 Kg

Strongman Lewis Byng has already caught some attention from the public, after deadlifting 371 kg (818 lbs) at the age of 19. With this lift, Lewis claimed the British U23 Deadlift Record, but judging by his recent Instagram posts, his deadlift abilities are improving very quickly.

Lewis posted a video showcasing his massive 400 kg (882 lbs) deadlift, done at only 20-years-old. He used a lifting belt, a deadlift suit, and a pair of lifting straps, while his deadlifting stance was conventional. The first half of Lewis’s lift went pretty good, but once he lifted the bar over the knees it required a lot more effort. Furthermore, Lewis had to hitch backwards a lot, which would be illegal in powerlifting, but is allowed in the sport of Strongman.

As he stated in the comment section of the post, Lewis is currently 195.6 cm (6 foot 5 inches) tall, and weighs in at 149 kg (328.5 lbs).
