In the words of Dr. Terry Todd, no lift is better at measuring an athlete’s absolute strength than the deadlift. At the Arnold Strongman Classic, the Hummer Tire Deadlift does just that. Athletes pull weights ranging from 800 to 1100 lbs. in the form of Hummer tires attached to a 15-foot barbell. In this event, the best of the best are quickly separated from the rest of the pack.
