Hugh Jackman posted this on his Twitter account a few hours ago. I guess staying in shape to sing Broadway showtunes play Wolverine is pretty demanding. According to the calculations I’ve seen that’s 460 lbs. That’s about twice what I work out with on the bench press so for me this seems pretty damn impressive.

I know he’s not bench pressing it but knowing that if he got pissed off he could basically pick me up and toss me around like a rag doll is a scary thought. My normal fighting defense of curling up into a ball until the threat is over would be virtually useless here since I’d be in the perfect rag doll like throwing position.

I don’t have the greatest back as it is so I haven’t done deadlifts in years. Any gym rats out there want to chime on what a normal deadlift workout consists of? Is 460 lbs. as impressive as it seems, keeping in mind this guy is 44-years old.
