A deadlift is arguably the most universal exercise for determining strength, as it is used in all disciplines, including Strongman, Powerlifting, CrossFit, Bodybuilding, as well as among everyday gym goers. So, it takes a lot of effort and sacrifice to become one of the greatest deadlifters in the world, but Sean Logan is one of the few that made it to the top. Sean is recognized for his stationary strength, most notably the deadlift. Having said that, he has just achieved a huge achievement, having set a new 1,003-pound (455-kilogram) deadlift personal record (PR).
Sean Logan set the 1,003-pound (455-kilogram) deadlift PR at the 2023 New Zealand Log and Deadlift Championships. In addition, Sean shared video footage of all six attempts on his Instagram page.
Judging by how Sean Logan approached the barbell, it seems that he used a deadlift suit. His other pieces of equipment were a lifting belt and lifting straps. Sean also warmed up with 425 kilograms (937 pounds) for his first attempt.
“Super pumped that I’ve finally made the 1000lb club I’ve knocked on the door multiple times only to miss out 🔥”

After setting a new deadlift PR, Sean Logan also attempted to lift 480 kilograms (1,058.2 pounds). Even though he was not successful, the fact that he was able to lift the massive weight from the ground indicates that he will be able to lock it out in the future.
Sean Logan also competed in the other portion of the competition, the Log Lift. Due to a shoulder injury he sustained some time back, Sean wasn’t able to perform as expected. Sean’s heaviest successful attempt came out to 150 kilograms (330.7 pounds).

During his Strongman career, Sean Logan’s greatest success was winning the 2018 England’s Strongest Man competition. However, he is mostly known for his deadlift. Now that Sean resides in New Zealand, he also holds the country’s record for the heaviest deadlift.
Sean Logan recently also took part in a powerlifting competition for the first time and walked away with some massive lifts. His 410-kilogram (903.9-pound) Squat W/Wraps and 405-kilogram (892.9-pound) Raw Deadlift proved that he has major potential in powerlifting as well.

Having set the new Heaviest Deadlift In New Zealand, Sean Logan will now continue climbing the ranks of deadlift leaderboards. If he makes some additional improvements, Sean will be a World Record contender in no time at all. It seems reasonable to expect him to achieve this outcome, especially since he is able to deadlift even more than 455 kilograms (1,003 pounds) at the moment.
