Reigning two-time America's Strongest Man Dimitar Savatinov is ready to defend his title at the 2016 America's Strongest Man this weekend, just five weeks after suffering a left biceps tear.

Stay tuned to FloElite on Saturday, October 1, to follow along LIVE with our coverage.

He may be down one bicep, but he's definitely not ready to throw in the towel. Even while recovering from that injury, Savatinov has been training the competition events hard.

The Dumbbell Press

He's able to get four reps with the competition weight dumbbell, even with some inefficiencies.


The Truck Pull

Watch how he gets low and drives with his legs and keeps his feet moving once the truck is rolling.

The Car Deadlift

While he admits the deadlift here feels heavier than he'd want it to, Savatinov knows he'll have more in the tank with some rest and good taper going into America's Strongest Man.

The Stone To Max Height

Max height is especially tough on shorter competitors like Savatinov, so he's training to get the stone overhead and over the mark.
