    Paul Anderson did not squat 1200 raw. Period. He probably quarter squatted that amount and people started saying he did a full squat.

His best meet squat was 1102, and twice; I've seen him squat 1031 in training with just briefs and a belt.
    Definitely one of the underrated greats. Just pure brute strength; 931 deadlift is a good indication of his power.

    Too many different ways to measure strength to choose one guy. Have to say Garry Frank moved some impressive weight though. And in loose gear.

    Has anybody else benched 300 kg raw and pulled 400 kg in the deadlift besides Kaz? Garry Frank might have been able to but to my knowledge he never benched raw in a meet.

    Jon Cole has been mentioned once and Is definitely deserving of consideration. His 2259 total at 275 and 2364 at 308 (raw, knee wraps only) haven't been broken after 39 years!

    I wouldn't say the strongest, but it we are making a list, one not mentioned yet was O.D. Wilson.

    He lost WSM in 1990 by just half a point to Jon Pall Sigmarsson.

    Squat 462 kilograms (1,019 lb)
    Bench Press 257 kilograms (567 lb)
    Deadlift 406 kilograms (895 lb)
    Total 1,102.5 kilograms (2,431 lb)

    IPF champion in 1988.

    He won the 1990 Pure Strength competition when Bill Kazmaier was his partner. Kaz told me years ago that if OD hadn't died so young he would have lifted weights that no one ever had. Kaz had a lot of respect for OD.

    /\ +1 My favorite is "E" ~ Go ahead and drag some gates! Dude was absolutely jacked, and no gear!
    Does this pose make my camera look big?

    not even gonna touh this one, just too many variables to say strongest of all time
    like for example
    • strength relative to size
    • lifters and claims of bygone eras, no way to truely be sure of veracity, not like we have video of those feats
    • strongest overall, or just really strong at certain feats?
