I hear conflicting reports. Is Kaz a good guy? I've heard some say he is an asshole and others say he is great guy. I suppose its kind of like Captain Kirk Koworski. You piss the guy off, things don't go well.
Bah!!!!! He is a very nice humble guy ! I've met him and drank with him.

It's a Strongman forum bro...."strong" could be interpreted in many ways. Watching Pud (for his size especially) OHP 365 for reps was pretty insane....he was at the top once I started watching espn at 3am in my late teens....was him and Magnus going back and forth for a bit, then.
Right... which is why I broke it down to different types of strength. Pud was on top b/c many of the top competitors was competing in IFSA and not in WSM fed. Pressing 365 for reps is strong but Z can OHP 500 with little effort and that's just not human.

I'd add Misha K. to the list since he's been at the top in all strength sports.... strongman, powerlifting, highland games, and olympic weightlifting.

If we're talking pressing power Big Z crushes all... period. No MAN on that list has his pressing power.

Pud shouldn't even be on that list. It's an insult to the other lifters.
Well, Kaz did 661 raw not long before he tore his pec/deltoid bending the steel bar in the 1981 WSM. Big-Z only 629. Kaz would easily have done 700+ raw if not for that severe injury. Big-Z on the log press is extremely impressive. Though the records are inflated because they used to use far thicker, uneven wooden logs. Now they use a thin and balanced steel "log" which are much easier to handle being so much thinner.

As far as raw strength, agility and speed I would have to say Paul Anderson. I imagine Paul did not use any PED's. I don't know for a fact though.

Big Z is the only one to ever had pressed the Fortissimus stone.... a solid piece of rock (not even, not polished, not cut, just raw stone) the size of a small city. I believe that rock weighed in around 450 and he was the only one to press it. No one else budged it.

No, you are correct. He's from my state and he was literally dirt floor poor. He would do limited ROM of motion lifts by digging out the dirt he would stand on. He would rig shit to lift. Just a cock strong country boy with some serious drive and imagination to become insanely strong.
