Sean Hayes made this lift official during his last outing.

Sean Hayes continues to impress in the sport of powerlifting. On April 2, he took a new step forward setting the Silver Dollar deadlift world record at the 2022 Strongman Corporation Canada King & Queen Of The Throne event. Hayes loaded up 560.2kg (1,235lb) on the bar and completed the lift during his second attempt.

The Silver Dollar deadlift gets its name because of the setup. This is a partial deadlift (18 inches) that has the stacks of plates on a plate tree and enclosed in boxes attacked to the barbell. Hayes took to Instagram to shared his record-setting lift.

“SOOOO I DID A THING

ALL TIME WORLD RECORD IN THE SILVER DOLLAR DEADLIFT & HEAVIEST DEADLIFT OF ANY KIND IN ANY COMPETITION EVER.

1235LBS

THIS WAS MY 2ND ATTEMPT, I ATTEMPTED CLOSER TO 1300LBS ON MY 3RD BUT SHE WASN’T THERE TODAY.”

Sean Hayes attacked the weight without shoes wearing a lifting belt and straps. Hayes weighed 330 pounds at the time of this lift meaning he moved nearly four times his own body weight — and he still had some left to attempt a heavier lift.

Hayes decided to load up 589.7kg (1,300lb) on the barbell but failed his final attempt. This is a number that we will likely see Hayes attempt in the future.

Anthony Pernice held the previous record of 550kg (1,212lb), which he set at the United States Strongman Farm Strong Record Breaker event in July 2020. Hayes was able to break this record at just his third professional strongman contest.

In 2021, Hayes made appearances at the 2021 Official Strongman Games (7th place) and 2021 Canada’s Strongest Man (3rd place). Since making this list official, Hayes contracted COVID-19 and was forced to take some time off from the gym. He will likely be back soon and it will be interesting to see where he goes from here.

Sean Hayes competed in just the deadlift potion of his most recent competition. It was a show that featured five events but he decided to put all of his energy into setting this deadlift record. It is likely that he tries to set a higher mark next time out, even if it is the 1,300-pound mark that eluded him just two weeks ago.
