Douglas he does Strongman. He is one of the strongest humans on the planet. Put it this way, Donnie Thompson is VERY impressed by him. They trained together for a bit.

When he trained squats in a pair of hand-me-down (2nd owner) metal briefs, he hit a 925 box squat (plate weight). From what I've gathered, although I've never talked to him specifically about it, I don't think he prefers training in gear. Who knows what he could hit with a full brief/suit combo, but it'd obviously be huge.

Deadlift 500lb Axle - 1. Rich Williams (USA) - 2. Mark Felix (UK) - 3. Tex Henderson (USA)
Inch Farmers Walk - 1. Rich Williams (USA) - 2. Mark Felix (UK) - 3. Tex Henderson (USA)

There is a video of the event on Youtube.
