Generation Iron Hugh Jackman Deadlift


Who says movie stars only rely on special effects? ¬†Hugh Jackman is a staunch and dedicated actor who pushes himself to the limit for all of his roles. We posted his Wolverine workout some weeks back, serving as an example of the actor’s determination in building his body to match the iconic superhero’s physique.

Lately, videos have been surfacing of the Aussie actor getting prepared to play Black Beard in a new Peter Pan adaptation – and just as he did for The Wolverine, Jackman is pushing himself to the limit in order to turn himself into a figure of menacing might.

Jackman is a fan of adding Olympic lifting into his regular workout routines, one of which is the universally popular deadlift. Over the summer he posted a video of himself lifting just shy of 400 lbs. A recent video has surfaced of Jackman pushing past 400 to 435 lbs. Take a look.

Getting closer to my PB. 435 DON’T TOUCH IT!!

Jackman is in total beast mode in this clip, screaming out “Don’t touch it!” when his training partners try to offer him some help. The best part is, that’s not even his personal best.
