Our big strongman event in Milwaukee was on Saturday (of course, I couldn't make it after looking forward to it all year), but it was pretty cool that former pro Sam McMahon who puts the contest on was able to get WSM winner Brian Shaw to come out for the contest and help run the events.
The day before, everyone got a session in at our gym, where Brian deadlifted 905 lbs. for 2 reps because "nobody had pulled 900+ in our facility before", just so we could say it had been done under our roof http://youtu.be/gf4xo6OW_98
This was also done after a set of 2 reps @ 855 lbs. that looked far too easy, the man truly is a giant and strong as hell.
Hopefully some of that insane strength will rub off on me when I deadlift this weekend!
