Ok bros this is switching gears a bit, hopefully this thread will be a good one, as there are so many great lifters out there. This thread isnt about drugs, or gear, or best fed, or politics, but simply who is the best master lifter out there right now?

Alan Cayer with over ten times bodyweight at 165
Richard Austin, 400 plus bench at 228 and 70 plus years old, he is going to do a 300 raw bench in March on his 76th Birthday! He holds many world records in the APF that wont be touched for a very long time.

Your thoughts?

Its cool how when we talk about the "old guys" most will leave out the usual bs about feds etc, its a good topic in my book. I originally titled the thread BEST MASTER LIFTER but to avoid confusion I changed it.

Is Louie Simmons in the Master's division? If he is then he is my favorite.

Nope. Lou only lifts in the Open class.

TRAVIS and ONELIFTONE KILL...your right..I forgot about Lou! Lou is DEF up there on the list!! Puling near 700 at 50! Lou qualifies as a master in my book as he is over 40, I don't mean Master as only those that compete in that division, any lifter over 40 regardless of division. I should also add Tom Eiseman for certain. Eddy if he comes out of retirement would be a shoe in for the top as well.

I agree with you guys that Gillingham is a beast. But what about Tony COnyers. That guy is beast strong geared or not. Then what about Mike Bridges. He just did a meet a few months ago. Dave Ricks is also over 40 and placed at IPF men's worlds.

Just talking about single lift guys what about Bill Gillespie in the bp and Tee Meyers with a 745 at 52 and 195 pounds?

Thanks for covering me Wayne. I guess I should have worded it better, but yes, Tee is a DL guy.

As soon as Bill Gillispie turns 50, he'll probably make my 716 look like a warmup. He hit 711 at WABDL Worlds for an opener.

What about Odd Haugen? Over 50 and was still competing in World's Strongest Man (and holding his own). Last year at WABDL World's he pulled ~720 at around 54 years old. He's still competing in strongman and powerlfiting events all over the world (and dominates most of them).
