Zydrunas Savickas, or Big Z to those of us incapable of pronouncing his name, is widely regarded as the statically strongest man that has ever lived. The owner of several world records during his career he is known for his massive log press and back breaking deadlift.

Big Z’s first success was in 1998 when he won the title of Lithuania’s Strongest Man. He has since gone on to hold the title of World’s Strongest Man three times (most recently in 2012) and dominate the Arnold Strongman Classic with a massive seven wins. Along with an almost endless list of strongman achievements, Z is also an experienced powerlifter, coming 2nd in the 125kg+ class at the IPF World Powerlifting Championships in 2000.
