    Haha, i know someone who can do 40 (Without weights) While this is true, dont take this comment seriously.

  • 19ninetynine

    oh no! Magnus is bench-pressing again :-P amazing job all around by everyone! with the deadlift, you could bring your feet closer in or maybe try sumo-deadlift. your back could be a bit straighter and you were quite rough pulling it off the ground, but you still did a good job :-)

    Oooo, next time you should challenge them to a ski race. Because you all can and it would be terrifying to watch 90kg+ soldiers going full steam down xc ski trails. That guy would be like the video of the moose running through the snow drift, but faster. Ok I'll go now, lol.

    Captain Denis Amesbury of the now disbanded Canadian Airborne could do 23 1 armed pullups (switching arms) in his early 50s, he was built like Magnus. Never made it passed Captain because he would shag General's wives.

    The average Joe or Jane cannot do pull ups... at all. So if you're regularly doing bodyweight chin ups / pull ups you're ahead of most people. And I'm guessing not 1 in 10,000 of the general population can add 30 kg to their pull ups.

    Did that thomas guy actually bench with his ass off the board? its pretty bad form if i remember it right..

  • BulbasaurUseVinewhip

    with good technique you'd be strong as fuck you should give Olympic lifting a go for a week or something with a good coach & see how strong you get, I would not be surprised if you could easily clean & jerk your bodyweight in such a small time

    Magnus cam bench 225 he just needs to learn how to setup he benched 198 flat back
