Really impressive, especially considering he completely ruptured his bicep not too long ago.

One of the absolute strongest men but yet to get an invite to the Arnold.

The deadlift is crazy and especially since he tore his biceps like 6 months ago.

He is a strong dude for sure. I think he did well this year at WSM even with his injury.

He will be competing at the All American Strongman Challenge later this month at the LA Fit Expo for anyone that cares.

If he wins at the Fit Expo then I believe that is an automatic spot at the Arnold, and there are two additional invites available for international athletes.

Either way he is really coming on strong and looks to be a factor for the podium at all of the big international contests.

WOW! I love to see the strongmen competitors post gym lifts for comparison. Really puts things in perspective!

Another thing is that powerlifting has only recorded, what, 10 or 11 900+ pound deadlifts in the history of the sport? Its crazy to think that there are currently 5 guys off the top of my head, and im sure there are more, that pull over 900, with 4 being WELL over 900 (Kevin Nee, Big Z, T. Hollands, Poundstone, and Bennie Mag) and many more in the 880 range. And to think they do not "specialize" in deadlift training, just alot of general back and hip work.

Well Bennie has hit his big deads in powerlifting competition but I agree there could be more 900+ deadlifters if some of the top strongmen did a deadlift competition.

That's an awesome pull. But before everybody starts assuming he could go 900+ in a PL meet, consider it was done with straps. Some guys have freaky grips and can pull pretty close to what they can pull without straps. But, many of us can pull MUCH more with straps than without. I've pulled 622 in a meet, but 700 in the gym with straps. My grip strength is by far my biggest weakness. Another example. 5 years ago I did knee high rack pulls with 930 x 3 with straps. Without straps I couldn't get 700 off the pins for 1.

Still 970, straps or not is an awesome feat of strength! Sure impresses the heck out of me. Maybe he could pull 900+ in a PL meet. I'm not saying he can't. And, as someone said; he is a huge guy!

I think it may also have something to do with their flexiblity. Often big guys in powerlifting lack the flexiblity to really use their leverages in the deadlift.
