The longest duration deadlift with a 100 kg weight is 9 min 56.53 sec, and was achieved by Marcello Ferri (Italy), in Pesaro, Italy, on 11 April 2021.
Marcello trained for his attempt by lifting a range of different weights, from 80 kg (176 lb 5.9 2 oz) to 200 kg (440 lb 14.79 oz). However, despite the rigorous training, Marcello actually takes great enjoyment from his records. When asked if he faced any difficulties on the day he replied
"(It was) not difficult at all. Quite the contrary. I had fun. In fact my philosophy in weight lifting has always been "let's see if I can lift it""
Marcello is also a vegetarian and wants to show that you do not need to eat meat to achieve your strength goals.
