Evan Singleton Makes An 855-Pound Deadlift Look Easy For A Double

Evan Singleton is healthy and back to moving some huge weight in the gym.

Evan Singleton suffered a bicep tear in 2020 that kept him out of action for quite some time. It looks as though “T-Rex” is back to full strength and he recently showed it off with some massive deadlifts. Singleton completed two reps of an 855-pound deadlift and made it look easy.

Singleton joined Nick Best for a training session where the two were moving some serious weight. He stepped up to the bar with a lifting belt, knee sleeves, and wrist straps. The plates had to be secured with resistance bands because of the number on each side. Singleton not only completed two reps, he did it with relative ease.

“I can’t express how much I love training with nick. The man is such an inspiration and it’s seriously humbling hearing so e of the kind and motivational words he says to me. They’re appreciated more than you know and I’ll take them all to heart. Thank you so much nick for inviting me out here
P.s. again, the hype up is real and not for the cameras. Proof that I’m kinda hitting g my head really hard lol. Haven’t busted myself open in a while.”

Evan Singleton is not preparing for any competitions in the upcoming months. He is still putting the finishing touches on gaining his regular strength back. Singleton is scheduled to appear at the 2022 World’s Strongest Man competition, which will take place from May 24-29 in Sacramento.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2018, Singleton has won three major competitions. He is a former professional wrestler who got a late start in powerlifting. It is clear that he has elite strength and is a threat at each competition. His career began at the 2018 Giants Live North American Open. Singleton won his first major show at this event in 2019.

In 2021, Singleton had his best year winning the Arnold Strongman Classic UK and Giants Live World Open.

Evan Singleton will not compete until the WSM competition but he will attempt to break the Circus Dumbbell world record at the Clash on the Coast Record Breakers on April 22. This is a chance for Singleton to gain some momentum heading into the summer months.
