    How is that a guess. He's won the title three times. And Big Z has put a LOT more overhead.

    I thought Eddie looked like he was going to take the title but the dislocated fingers were too much of a hinderance.

    He is but not for 425lbs lol. Google says 440 on the log. Most if the top 10 are good for 440lbs. A handful 451 and big Z was what 480-500+??

    If I did not miss anything, big Z's world record stands at 500 lbs

    Brian Shaw put up a video 8hrs ago via Facebook of a 465lbs/211kg log press and said 'plenty more in the tank'. A new PB.

    It's really hard to actually determine or pin point which of the three is the strongest. These three guys are by far giants in our time. All three and Thor are by far the strongest in the world. The fortitude these guys have for all the events at the weights they use would crush many of us.

    I seen that, and it looked like he had more. I can't wait to see these guys compete at the Arnold this year.

    Each athlete possesses their stronger and weaker events. Over the course of the competition, each weakness is identified more than their strong events. Often knowing the event has been won, they are not required to push themselves. The overall winner is rarely the strongest, but rather the one whose weakness was minimized.
    Training and diet consulting available. Send me a PM.

    Good point. Back when I first competed I'd win the first event then, slowly but surely, I'd drop down through the rest until I was near as last can be without being last. I trained what I liked not what I needed to. Eventually, having been told a few times, I listened and brought up my weaknesses.

    Last time I competed (April of last year) I won 3 of the 4 events and came 2nd on the other. Second place was 3+ inches taller and 30 pounds heavier than me (and mid-20's to my 50+) and I'm 6'3 and 280lbs. In WSM it's rarely the case that each event winner wins but more the fella that came 2nd or 3rd and so garnered the least points and was more well rounded.
