" Every year I try to be stronger than the last year"
- Big Z
Hey babies, here's another Hero Highlight for your getting pumped pleasure! Around the Dirty Gym we often watch insane highlight videos of world class competitors prior to our lifting session. Gets us amped up and ready to crush all the things that need crushing. My favorite highlights to watch are of Strongman competitors. Strongman is the one strength sport that tests both brute strength, technique in a lift, and conditioning. Zydrunas Savickas, loving referred to as Big Z, is currently considered one of the all time greatest Strongmen, having won every major Strongman competition in the world. Standing at 6'3” and weighing in at 375 lbs, Big Z squats 973 lbs, benches 600 lbs and deadlifts 898 lbs. Now watch this epic highlight video, put on your big boy (or girl) pants and go lift some heavy shit!
