There are quite a few videos online and were some standout performances including a 790 lbs deadlift for 8 reps in one minute by Savickas and what looked to be an easy 484 lbs log clean and press to establish a new world record in that event.
Wow. Big Z came on strong in the 2nd day.
Z, 220kg log
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
Weight Class: 165

The Big Z again. What a great lifter.
Thats disgusting haha, I saw shahlaei do a 190 kilo press at our gym with a regular bar, and I thought that was horrible. Big z is one of a kind. Love the way he handles himself too, no fancy video's or promotions etc, just disapears throughout the year, trains his ass off, turns up and dominates with the lifts doing the talking.
Check out my training:
