    strongest man according to...what source?

    pretty impressive, makes me wonder if those in metrx's world's strongest man competition can do that since they are theoretically the world's strongest men..

    I'm gonna go ahead and call bullshit. There's some kind of trickery involved because theres no way that your bones, especially in your neck, can handle that kind of load.

    it looks like a hollowed out car frame with plastic panels though. Given that it's on a forklift... it's almost certainly under 1000 lbs. The fact that they chose a fat ass instead of some ripped model guy makes me belive more that it's not rigged just for show. But on the other hand, he's not walking like someone with much weight on his body. He looks nothing like someone walking out a squat rack with 700lb on his back

    I've seen that guy on TV before, he puts fridges and shit on his head. But a fucking 2000lbs car? That can't be real.

    your average car is going to weigh about 3000 lbs, and a forklift is usually weighted in the back around 10k lbs... so that's definately possible.

    It is a mock up of a car. A fake shell. Notice the wheels are still tucked high into the wheel wells. A vehicle with a suspension will have the wheels pressed downwards from the springs expanding without the weight of the car compressing them.

    techinically, its still a "car" cause of its shell. but im sure its gutted out, any reason why the windows are tinted/blacked out?

    and like lurker111 said, i doubt there is even an suspension set-up on that vehicle.
    that shell + wheels = 300-500 lb? still a lot of weight on a neck

    i saw an article or special on tv with this guy and that lift in it. It is a gutted shell of a car, which weighs like 500 pounds. Still 500 pounds on top of the head is pretty crazy. As far as that being a measure of strength.....not rly

    :wtf:

    People can do 500lb squats. Putting it on top of your head means didly.

    Although I would guesstimate your figures to be wrong. When stripping a car for SCCA competition, the shell of even the lightest cars weighs around 1200lb.

    the ariel atom weighs about 1000lb with an empty tank :dunno:

    if you gut a normal car, I presume you can probably clean out 1000lb.
