This weightlifter passes out after "forgetting to breathe" during a 245-kilogram deadlift.

Raymond Heaton was filming himself in the gym as he attempted two heavy deadlifts.

The fitness enthusiast drops the weights and promptly collapses. Nearby gym-goers quickly check on him.

Heaton said: "It was the last day before gyms closed over Christmas in my small town and I wanted to go pretty heavy to make it count.

"Also, I recently purchased a mouthguard and this was my first time using it and I was not used to breathing through it.

"Additionally, I had just started to implement the hook grip, which is quite painful to use but more efficient/safer which only added to me not remembering to breathe at all on my 245-kilogram x 2.5 deadlifts."

This footage was filmed in December 2020.
