He benched 633 for a triple (no shirt), was the first man to lift all the atlas stones, won the WSM 3 times in a row, and squatted over 900 pounds injured.

His total of 2425 was RAW. (no equipment, shirts, etc.)

Big Kaz is my idol. He's one of my biggest inspirations to maintain the lifestyle that I've become accustom to. Hats off to Bill :tiphat:

this guy is a good strong man,, but his physique needs a little work. I mean, fat pecks,no way. Skinny calves and quads, that's not gonna cut it. Am I missing something here.

:hhj:

Yes. Yes you are.

Bill Kazmaier was quite possibly one of the strongest men ever. He didn't train to have the best physique, he trained to be a strong man. The strength he built was from hours of hard work, the body just came with it. Show me another 360lb guy who looks half as good as Kaz did (and don't show me Kovacs or I'll flip.) Also, this man has better traps than JOJ, IMO.

yea that's true..In some he did look good, because I'm sure he was natural. Thats crazy..did he really get to 360 natural.

Unlikely. There are very few people with that ammount of strength and mass to have gotten there naturally.

Nope, it's Kaz. Says so in the pic's caption, and it's from Ed Coan's own book. I highly doubt Ed would mis-identify Kaz, who also happens to be a good friend of his.

Here's a pic of Kaz and J.P. Sigmarson.


Yeah, Kaz was awesome. He dominated powerlifting, strongman comps, and had a pretty good build to top it off..... An all-around strength/muscle legend. I still think Kaz is the strongest man alive. (Imagine what numbers Kaz would have put up with suits and the like.....)

Also, has anyone seen the vids of Kaz sumo wrestling the best wrestler in the world at that point and got him out of the ring in about 4 seconds?

The man is still awesome. I saw him in vegas back in 2001 at the Mr. O roll up with one hand a frying pan like you would roll up a newspaper. He did it twice with a big one and a small one.
