Strongman Kim Ujarak Hits 425 kg (937 lbs) Deadlift PR With Ease

Kim Ujarak 425 Kg Deadlift

Many people are unfamiliar with Kim Ujarak, but he is a great strongman and a static powerhouse. Kim is a 5x Greenland’s Strongest Man. A strongman legend, Laurence “Big Loz” Shahlaei, is also his current coach. Kim’s partnership with Big Loz seems to be going well, as he just hit a new deadlift PR of 425 kg (937 lbs), which is also a Greenlandic Record.

The most fascinating part is the speed of Kim Ujarak’s pull. He did not struggle at any point of the lift, and made it look like he could deadlift a lot more weight. Kim deadlifted with a conventional stance, using only wrist wraps and a lifting belt. Just 10 days ago, he weighed in at 143 kg (315.3 lbs), meaning he pulled 3x his bodyweight.

In the video’s caption, Kim expressed that he set his sights on 1000+ lbs (453.6 kg) for this year. His coach, Big Loz, replied with a comment:

“We’re pulling a big, big number this year buddy,”

Kim Ujarak’s Career And Achievements 

Kim has not spent a lot of time competing in major competitions yet, but his future looks bright. His greatest success came in the 2021 Arnold Strongman Log Press And Deadlift Championships UK.
