6´2 1/2 is possible if Big Z is closer to 6´4. Big z 191,5 this dude 188,5

Rob, is 6ft2½ arguable?

At times he seems to have close to an inch on Eddie
Editor Rob
from his wakening up height, you could argue 6ft 2.5 would be an ok listing.

If BigZ is 6'3", then Licis can't be any taller than 6'1"

Well.... if Licis is 6'2' and 1/4.. Novikov is under 6'
CTv said on 28/Jun/21
Can you do last years winner? Novikov - see this video at Click Here 21:51 where they stand next to each other.

Novikov is listed at 6'1" and that just seems impossible.
Editor Rob
without watching some footage I cannot recall much about his height

Eddie measuring 190cm barefoot mid-morning I'm not convinced on as he's clearly edged by this guy. Out of bed he might scrape it though. The 6ft2 listing for him is ok but possibly falls a little under it in the evening. This guy on the other hand looks a very solid 6ft2 and unlike Eddie would genuinely at an earlier point in the day have a decent crack at 190cm barefoot

Not a chance this guy is under 6ft2 at his low

Met Martins at Nationals in 2017. A pretty strong 6'2" guy. He's wearing flats while Z is wearing olympic weightlifting shoes that have a pronounced 1.5 inch+ heel.

Looked similar height to 185cm Nick Best in his most recent YouTube Video.

Looks considerably shorter than 6’3 Big Z here. Slight footwear and posture advantage for Z but his age compensates. Can see Martins as a weak 6’2 strong 6’1.75 guy. What Do you think Rob?

You could imagine 3-4cm in that shot, but I wonder if Martin is at a slight disadvantage in position.
Kurzzawa said on 30/Sep/20
Rob considering that u have Eddie here 6’2 Martin should get 1/4 inch upgrade or Eddie 1/4 inch downgrade. Legit half inch difference if Martin stands stright. In this picture Click Here he is taller even with slightly posture advantage to eddie.
Editor Rob
I think Martins was the more honest, Eddies' 'measurement' wasn't as believable, because he would then surely look taller than Martins.

But remember there are guys who met Eddie who estimated him as 6ft 2 plus, so I can't dismiss their in-person and photographic evidence.

Rob, what do you think of Licis in this clip with 6'3.25 combine measured Vernon Davis? Even with the footwear difference, Licis looks 6'1 range.

Editor Rob
Didn't think he really looked as short as 6ft 1-1.5 there, nearer 6ft 2 I could have bought.

Nice to see another honest height-aware guy.
Josh Jeffords said on 28/Apr/20
Very strange height claim esp being a pretty open honest guy.
His height does seem to fluctuate hes looked close to 6 3 when young and much lighter.
He honestly barely looks over 6 1 most times 6 2 or the half maybe early am.
Hes taller than eddie who is 6 1 range cant recall him next to z who used to be 6 3 range.
Funny guy awesome athlete and cool guy too.
BobbyCurls said on 7/Mar/20
Looked a good bit shorter than Zydrunas Savickas in a recent video from the Arnold Classic. Check out the 7:30 mark (Click Here)

I would say he falls into the 6'1.5 range. Probably means guys like Bradley Martyn, Mike O'Hearn, and David Laid are closer to 6'2 than 6'3.
Jkiller said on 29/Jan/20
Looked 6'2 next to 6'3 bradley martyn in their latest video.
Nik said on 5/Jan/20
All credit to him for being honest!
Caldonio said on 1/Jan/20
Looks taller than Eddie hall?? How the hell does eddie think he’s 6-3?? Lol
Animus said on 25/Dec/19
I assume you are referring to this video?

Martins says Larry is taller than he thought (around 0:40), not that they are the same height. As you point out yourself, Martins is clearly taller. I think Larry was surprised they are close in height because Martins at the time was 65lbs heavier than Larry.

Honestly, Licis can look a solid 189cm around Wheels. I think 6'2¼" is fine for him, though.
Yuval said on 25/Dec/19
No, Licis said that he was surprised they are the same height. I do believe Licis is taller but no more the 6'2 and a quorter.
MD said on 25/Dec/19
He looks considerably less than this with 6'6.25" Rob Grownkowski in this video clip (second item in set):

Click Here

Even without a direct side-by-side comparison that looks way more than 4 inches difference.
Editor Rob
Martin might be giving away another 1cm in sneaker difference.
Animus said on 20/Dec/19

Well, it was Larry Wheels that said that. He says that a lot with taller guys. Licis is clearly taller.
Myself said on 17/Nov/19
Idk where he said that, but from what I've seen he always seemed a couple inches taller than Larry...Either way, I believe 6'1.5 is the worst possible he could be, while the 6'1.75-6'2.25 is the likely range.

This strongest men in the world looks like weak 6ft 2 but definitely taller than My favorite Mexican-American Professional Boxer named Andy Ruiz Jr with 5ft 11 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/19
Looks a full inch taller than Eddie
Yuval said on 9/Nov/19
He had a video with Larry Wheels and he said he was surprised to see they are the same height(Larry is 6'1). You can look it on youtube,It's in the begining of one of their videos.Now it is hard to judge height of some one standing next to you to the exact centimeter but he is probably no taller then 6'2 after a few hours of walking.
Plus he was listed 6'2 at the WSM 2017 and they usually add an inch. Maybe these days with all the fame he is listed 6'3
Anon11 said on 7/Nov/19
I think that Licis is 6'1.5" and Eddie Hall 6'1" These two look clearly shorter than legitimate 6'3'' guy Zydrunas Zavickas.
Redwing said on 6/Nov/19
He’s very honest aint he rob do you think he’s being quite honest or bang on this listing?
Editor Rob
I can see him measuring 6ft 3 first thing, and at a low of around 6ft 2
Animus said on 2/Nov/19
Wow, really great addition! That's awesome, Rob.

I am big fan of Licis. He's obviously an enormously powerful man with the healthiest ego I've seen. I'd expect nothing less than an honest evaluation from Licis, so it's great to hear how he's aware of how height varies throughout the day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/19
That’s a unique claim. Looks 6ft2 range with Arnold
Nik Ashton said on 2/Nov/19
Great add!
184guy2 said on 1/Nov/19
His quotes are from someone who knows the CH vocabulary
Myself said on 1/Nov/19
Lol Rob, can you link the video? I want to see him claiming 6'2 next to supposedly 6'3 Eddie Hall, lmao

Nice add btw, I think he's quite honest.
Editor Rob
It was mentioned at this point, I noticed a lot more bigger names, even many celebs appearing on youtube in recent years, it's a good outlet for them
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/19
Martins knows his stuff, doesn't he? I had no idea of how height varies on a daily basis until my boyfriend told me when I was in my FORTIES! Honest!

Clued-up Martins gets 6ft2.5. 🌝

6-2 legit. No more imo
