A Breakdown Of Hugh Jackman’s Dead Lift TwitPic

Buzzfeed takes an otherwise cool picture of Hugh Jackman during a workout and turns it into humor. Seriously, though, Jackman got big to play Wolverine the first time and he kept the workouts and the diet. He does hardcore, basic, multi-joint lifts (like dead lifts) and that's why he looks like a superhero.

The X-Men actor tweeted a photo of himself dead lifting an immense amount of weight, but the photo becomes even more insane the longer you stare at it.

Here’s the original tweet:

Hugh Jackman

If the bar ain't bendin, then you're just pretendin #xmen #daysoffuturepast

9:29 AM - 30 Jul 13

1. First of all, the bar is indeed bending. 

So, holy shit and all that.

2. His body is the color of a summer ripe tomato.

Which obviously works on him, because he’s Hugh Jackman.

3. He’s making the “Y U NO” face.

As in, “Y U NO put that weight down, dude? Looks heavy.”

4. His chest is literally frowning from the pain.


5. This isn’t a vein it’s a tunnel the government built that allows his awesome-juice to travel throughout his body.

Common misconception.

6. He’s doing all this without breaking eye contact with his trainer.

If I were his trainer, I’d be shitting my pants right about now. Wolverine, eye lock, dead lift, run.

7. These neon toe shoes

are perfect.

8. And in case you were wondering, he’s lifting approximately 460 lbs.

According to these astute Redditors.

9. Which is roughly the equivalent of four Shakiras.

Just so we’re clear.

So is Hugh Jackman Wolverine? Or is Wolverine Hugh Jackman?

You be the judge. I’m too scared.
