Paul Anderson was born on October 17th in Toccoa, Georgia and died on August 15th 1994. Paul's strength was truly out of this world and some his training methods have greatly influenced and inspired Louie with his equipment and training development. Some of Pauls feats of strength are as follows
-4100lbs Hip Lift
-6200lbs Back lift
-440lbs Clean and Jerk
-560lbs Jerk press
It is estimated that he had a 1000lbs deadlift using straps!
Paul Anderson is a person you should read about in depth or at the very least google search about his amazing feats of strength.

  • In Randell Strossen’s book on Paul Anderson, Paul says the most he ever squatted, and when I say squat I mean full squat, was 1200 lbs!
