So what could have affected him on deadlift and not power stairs?
Perhaps he has simply regressed slightly at deadlift or maybe just had an off day. The latter in my opinion.


225 isnt that serious weight and doesn affect if injury is there

going on your logic the strongest at squat should be the best at yoke

If he really did have a lower back problem do you not think he would have struggled on power stairs and heavy stones.
I can't see how anyone with a significant back problem could finish second over 6 events that were ridiculously back dominated.


Power stairs don't involve a pull from the bottom. He did struggle on the stones, didn't he? I could see a lower back issue impacting any lift from a low position. That's been my personal experience with deadlift for sure.

I'm not betting he'll ever get back to his previous form at his age, but he has obviously been much stronger on deadlift in the past. Z doesn't strike me as someone who fails to prepare his best for a competition so I'd say the liklihood of a lower back problem is pretty high.

Did I say he was good enough?

I'm merely pointing out what I believe I have seen. I believe I said that even at his best it would be very close between Z and Shaw.

I don't take anything away from any one. As pointed out by others, Shaw could just as easily have won in the past as Z only for a mistake here or there.

I also think Thor and Eddie are real threats to Shaw in the future. I think Thor needs some more mass to attempt to equal Shaw's static strength. If Eddie gets himself to 400lbs body weight I suspect he would be the static power king.

There is a pretty strong correlation between Squat and super yoke. So much so that I don't really think they should be in the same contest. The tall guys do better at yoke because they don't have to get into a low position and it is height adjusted at WSM.

I concede though that you don't need to get down low for power stairs either.

Big Z picked up an injury last year in Italy after doing some world records events. This effected his Deadlift (possibly the yoke too) at the Arnold's and the worlds.

Yeah, he did set a few with Thor. Can't remember which ones tho might be on his FB last year summer time

I've seen him do one where he pulls a million cars or something like that.

I'm willing to bet this is a recurring thing, since it has impacted him on and off since about 2013.

Just shows that you need luck on your side on the day.

Hopefully Big Z will recover from his injury soon!

This is it.

Look it how you like, however there are a handfull capable of being WSM...It is not dominated anymore like Marius, Sigmarson and Magnus Ver Magnuson did before.
