    ESM deadlift challenge


    Who's going to pull the biggest weight at this years ESM? My money is on Benedikt. He's just a freak deadlifter.

    I don't know if all the European guys are involved, but Benedikt, Andy Bolton, and Shaw are all guest invites.

    I'm not familiar with ESM. What kind of deadlift is it, do you know? Standard barbell, tire, other?

    As far as I know it's just going to be a standard Olympic bar with Eiko plates. They're going for a straight weight max pull.

    He's certainly a contender. But Shaw beat him at max deadlift in 2013. And Benni has hit 1000+ without straps. Neither Shaw or Savickas has done that.

    Andy Bolton absolutely blew up 925 in March. Could see a good day out of him.

    One of my classmates brother trains at westside, he went to check it out and Shaw was there pulling 900#+ according to him.

    Benni has my vote.
