Zydrunas Savickas completed a world record deadlift this weekend at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus. Our friends over at Integrated Fitness caught the world record live! Savickas not only created a new world record, he made picking up 1155 pounds look easy as hell, like a boss! My highest pull on a deadlift was 390…. looks like I’ve got some work to do.
Known better as Big Z in the strongman world, he is a legend who has won it all. Zydrunas Savickas is from Lithuania and was a 2x World’s Strongest Man champion. Zydrunas Savickas is one of the world’s foremost strongmen having won a number of major strongman competitions, including The 2009 World’s Strongest Man.
Apparently he can also pick up chicks pretty easy too….
And here are a couple of unsuccessful deadlift attempts to enjoy:
