The Double Backlift!

Posted on Tuesday, October 20th, 2015 by John Wood
Here’s a strength feat that we’ve never seen before: The Double Backlift! This was performed by Erik Petterson and Arvid Andersson who were both great Swedish strongmen in the 1920s. I count 23 people, so a conservative estimate of this lift would be around 3500 lbs. ~ which ain’t bad at all.
