The Greatest…

Stronga-sponsored athlete Žydrūnas Savickas first became interested in strongman events after watching a Lithuanian strongman contest on TV in 1989, at the age of 14. Three years later, he took part in that same strongman contest and beat a number of more experienced competitors. At just 17, Savickas began to train in powerlifting and in just his 2nd powerlifting contest; he broke all the Lithuanian records.

The best was yet to come…

‘Žydrūnas Savickas – A Man from Iron’

The career of Žydrūnas “Big Z” Savickas’ has been well-documented in a 2010 biography called ‘Žydrūnas Savickas – A Man from Iron’. Written by Andrius Guginis, the biography is based on more than 300 hours’ worth of Big Z interviews. Guginis also spoke with Big Z’s family and close friends about the greatest ever strongman.

In ’A Man from Iron’, Big Z explained how he wanted people to read the book so they could appreciate the struggle that strongmen go through to achieve their dreams of becoming the world’s strongest. He explained how people only ever see the moment of glory; they don’t see or hear about how difficult the journey is.

In the biography, Savickas’ wife explained what it means to live with the world’s most powerful man. She explained how after major events, Big Z is often exhausted, sad and sometimes even depressed. She explained how it wouldn’t matter if he had won, there would be no psychological power left. It is in those moments that he needs his wife to offer her strength and compassion.
