After Pulling 492kg Peiman Maheripour Vows to Break Hafthor Bjornsson’s Deadlift World Record

Iranian powerlifter and strongman Peiman Maheripour vows to break Hafthor Bjornsson’s deadlift world record.

When Hafthor Bjornsson set the deadlift world record last year the strongman world was put on notice. Since then many have set their sights on breaking the record. Now Iranian powerlifter and strongman Peiman Maheripour is throwing his hat into the race with a recent 492kg deadlift.

The Iranian powerhouse has been hard at work in his training in the gym. He’s already shown some pretty incredible strength with his deadlift training. He even took a page out of the Larry Wheels book of lifting and lifted so much weight he bled from the nose.

Peiman Maheripour has already claimed to have set a world record. In another deadlifting video the Iranian strongman lifted 477.5kg for two reps, declaring that the feat was a world record. His reasoning? No one else had done it before or laid claim to the feat.
