Zydrunas Savickas has won World’s Strongest Man competition for two years in a row and winning again in 2012 for a third time. Savickas also placed second at the world’s strongest four times, proving that he is without a doubt one of the strongest men in the world.

You will see in his one-week training routine listed below, that he uses Wednesdays to train specifically for the strong man competition. Savickas, quite correctly believes that if he wants to win the strong man competition, he needs to strengthen his ability in these specific moves.

This is why you will see he incorporates Atlas stone lifts, farmers-walk, and yoke pulls into his training schedule. His method of doing a high volume but increasing the weight while he reducers the load is nothing new. Top powerlifters have been training like this for a long time, but Savickas uses more volume.
