Chris Duffin Is Deadlifting 880 lbs Every Day for a Month for Cancer Research

Earlier today, we opened an email from Chris Duffin and Kabuki Strength informing us of the new mission they’re talking on over the next month. At first we thought we had misread it: it said that Duffin plans on deadlifting 400kg/880 lbs every day for a span of 30 days.

Kabuki Strength and Duffin have teamed up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help bring awareness and raise money for the foundation with feats of strength and their sizable social media platform. Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a foundation that is dedicated to raising money for research towards children’s cancer treatments.

In Duffin’s Instagram post documenting this legendary strength feat and action for charity he writes, “Staring today, I am going to be deadlifting 880lbs (400kg) every day for 30 days.

We are partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a kid’s cancer charity that raises money to fund cancer research specifically for children. It was started by a little girl named Alex when she was 4 years old. She raised over 1 million dollars by age 8 when she passed away from a cancer called Neuroblastoma. Our whole team was heartbroken when we heart Alex’s story from her mom Liz on a call. You can read more about the story at 880everyday.com or on the ALSF website.”

▪️DAY 1▪️ – Staring today, I am going to be deadlifting 880lbs (400kg) every day for 30 days. – We are partnering with @alexslemonade Alex's Lemonade Stand, a kid's cancer charity that raises money to fund cancer research specifically for children. It was started by a little girl named Alex when she was 4 years old. She raised over 1 million dollars by age 8 when she passed away from a cancer called Neuroblastoma. Our whole team was heartbroken when we heart Alex's story from her mom Liz on a call. You can read more about the story at 880everyday.com or on the ALSF website. – Why are we doing this, and why am I using my platform and my company’s platform to do this? – Because Kabuki Strength's 4th pillar is Charity, and we believe that making the world a better place through strength should involve giving freely and generously of our time, money, attention, resources, and platform. – Rather than simply drawing attention to ourselves, we’ve found that we can use feats of strength like this to create attention and awareness around a specific cause and have a call-to-action that encourages people to support the cause. – My ask of you is simple – please donate whatever you can, if you can, and share one of the daily videos on your platform as a way to reach more people with this cause. – Head over to 880everyday.com and you will be able to follow along as well as donate directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand on the event page. – 880everyday.com Link in Bio – #880everyday @alexslemonade @marksmellybell @therock @timferriss @joerogan @garyvee @mobilitywod @steficohen @kabukistrengthlab @smith.julian @jujimufu @thorbjornsson @schwarzenegger @danalinnbailey @shawstrength @mikeohearn @realworld_tactical @barbend

A post shared by Chris Duffin (@mad_scientist_duffin) on

If you recall, a couple months ago Duffin and Kabuki Strength worked to raise money for the Special Olympics when Duffin squatted 363kg/800 lbs for a month. Over the span of full month they ended up raising a solid $6,500.00 on their GoFundMe page and that was all donated to the Special Olympics.

This 400kg/880 lb deadlift month is an absolutely insane strength feat and it’s being used for a great cause. It’s going to be interesting to see how Duffin handles the weight, as he wrote in the final days of the 362kg/800 lb 30 days of squats that they were getting increasingly tougher towards the end of the month.
