New Deadlifting Record at the Arnold


#1

Zydrunas Savickas did an 1110lb deadlift at the Arnold


#2

Video????


#3

Regular plates or those tires or whatever they do?


#4

It was a combination of tires and plates... I don't have a video but I'm positive one will be up soon.


#5

So...cool?


#6

It was awesome... I think he could have even hit 1150lbs.


#7

Droopy eyed armless children can deadlift 1110 with tires....


#8

Tires = a pit crew record, not a dead lift record.


#9

So misleading...


#10

#11

You can see the lift a bit better in this vid, looked easy!


#12

kinda sucky vid really


#13

??


#14

This was more impressive:


#15

With bar flex the lift, where the weight leaves the floor, basically starts at the knees. So, it is analogous to an 1100lb rack pull, kinda.


#16

Even then it takes a lot of strength to pull/bend the bar up to your knees like that.


#17

Disappointed because at first I thought Savickas had pulled a WR in the real deadlift. That doesn't feel too unlikely actually, he's a good deadlifter.


#18

I love how the clips pop off.


#19

Can we get this thread bumped to the Strongman forum? Theres no tires in powerlifting bud.

Who gives a shit? I believe you're looking for the Strongman forum.
