He didn't even need to go into full-on strongman technique mode on the second lift.  I bet he could pull an IPF legal 950 single right now.

Damn! Haha. That's awesome.

What's that like double bodyweight for him? Seriously, I'm asking...

Wikipedia lists his height at 6'8" and his weight at 440.
That places this at 2.06xBW.
Huge man, titanic lifts.

Amazing depth for a big man. I suspect atlas stones help that.

Top strongman are easily the strongest men on the planet no question. I think if several of the top guys just casually trained for a powerlifting meet they would dominate everyone. 

 

I was also impressed at how low he could get at the start I am at least 2 inches shorter and 100lbs+ lighter and I struggle to get into a good starting position.  I think he is good for well over mid 900 like others have said.

When the WSM was at Wingate a couple of years ago I got to get pretty close to several of these guys during lunch.  I've been around a lot of really big men in my life, but I've never seen a mountain of a man like Shaw.  I felt like an elementary school-aged kid.
