Graham Hicks – 400kg x 3 partial deadlift

Graham Hicks or “Hixxy” came up from the under 105kg ranks in the UK in the last couple of years and exploded onto the open scene in 2013 – his momentum carried him all the way to the World’s Strongest Man. Not too shabby.

Most well known for his impressive log press – see him pressing 202.5kg overhead here – he has recently started to develop a reputation as a bit of a deadlifter too.

Posted to youtube yesterday, Hixxy shows off 3 reps of a 400kg partial deadlift. We’ve noticed his full deadlift videos usually show the smallest of hitches at the top – perhaps this is his way of working on a smooth lift top to bottom?
