Thor Bjornsson squats 400kg (881lbs) for 2 reps with crazy speed (raw w/ wraps)

 

Thor’s static strength has improved immensely over the past year or so. He pulled 460kg in straps without hitching and almost got 472.5kg… on the stiffest bar known to man. Bear in mind Thor got 450kg with hitching on a deadlift bar years before that, when his performance in deadlift on a similar bar at world’s was only 420kg. He basically put 40kg on his deadlift at least in a year, and training videos before wsm 2 years ago and the recent one prove that. He is also probably good for a 450kg suat in wraps and a 260 bench. He recently deadlifted 380×2 like it was nothing without straps. Grip isn’t an issue for Thor his hands are massive. He has log pressed 200 for 3 reps. Also bear in mind that a few weeks ago Thor was only 400lbs… he’s in the offseason. At the Arnolds/worlds he was 455.
