Zydrunas Savickas: 450-kg Squat?

Dolbeau-Mistassini, Quebec—Zydrunas Savickas is here for the World Muscle Power Championships, and if you wonder about his strength, consider that at the IPF Lithuanian Powerlifting Championships in April, he did 425-265-400.

Savickas said that he opened his squats with an easy 390 kg, moved to 412.5 for his second attempt, which was also easy, and then took 425 on this third, and even that was so easy that if he doesn't suffer any injuries, he expects to squat 450 kg in an IPF meet next year.

Meantime, the two-winner of the Arnold Strongest Man competition said that after this year's World's Strongest Man contest, he will take a rest, and then begin the same serious preparation for the 2005 Arnold that he used with great success this year.
