Strongest Men of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Angus MacAskill

The absolutely strongest human being ever to have lived. And all based not so much on his feats of strength, but more so on his incredible size (height/weight) and body measurements. He was the largest normally proportioned human to have ever lived.

Strongmen aren't giants and giants aren't strong men but Angus was an exception to the rule. A natural giant, there were no medical reasons why he grew so big, 7ft 9, 580lb 80inch chest. The only odd feature about him were his oversized hands, 12" long 8" wide, same size as 9 foot tall Robert Wadlow,s.

He picked up a horse and lifted it over a fence, end of discussion

2 Louis Cyr

It's sad that he is largely forgotten as he's been dead for over 100 years, but nobody was ever more dominant than him in strength contests. He never backed down from a challenge and never lost (his final contest ended in a tie when he was 40, sick and out of shape, being challenged by the 2nd strongest man on Earth at the time). He should be number one.

Louis Cyr if they say he can backflip 4,337 pounds he can bench press
800,000 pounds and regularly lift 8,000 pounds. When he was little
He probably started benching 50 it's 110 pounds, and regularly lifted
50.8 it's 112 pounds and dumbbell press two 80 pound dumbbells to 90
Pound dumbbells. And before lifted 80 pound boxes to 105,117 Pound's.
Now he could do 301, 350 pound boxes! He is XXL strongest in the world
Out of Dave Hoff and mike shoesman. Ronnie Coleman is 3XL strongest in the world

Louis Cyr (1863-1912) was a French Canadian strongman with a career spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His recorded feats, including lifting 500 pounds (227 kg) with one finger and backlifting 4,337 pounds (1,967 kg), show Cyr to be, according to former International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness chairman Ben Weider, the strongest man ever to have lived.

3 Zishe Breitbart
4 The Great Gama

Actually he is the strongest...he lifted 2500 pounds once which none of these people could

He is strongest.

5 Joe Greenstein
6 Andre the Giant André René Roussimoff, known as André the Giant, was a French professional wrestler and actor. André He most famously feuded with Hulk Hogan, culminating at WrestleMania III, and his best-remembered film role was that of Fezzik, the giant in The Princess Bride. His size was a result of gigantism caused by excess growth hormone, which later resulted in acromegaly. It also led to him being called "The Eighth Wonder of the World". In 2014, he was named the ninth tallest professional wrestler in history. more.

He stands 7ft 6 and he weighs 520 lbs he can crush almost anyone he should be at least in the top 5

7 Zydrunas Savickas

Mark Henry is so overrated it makes me sick. Yes he broke records yet that was a long time ago and those records have been broken more. And all by this guy Big Z.

Kevin Fast is the strongest puller yet he is not the strongest at all. Zydrunas is the strongest. Mark Henry world strongest man is a stage name.

Lifted 500 lbs over his head. World record. Dead lifted 1155 lbs. World record. Won 4 Worlds Strongest Man championships. Kevin Fast is not even strong.

8 The Great Antonio
9 Mariusz Pudzianowski

This guy was an amazing explosive athlete. He was an incredible strongman who won the title 5 times and looked like a bodybuilder.

Pure muscle and strength. This man is a giant in the sports.

He won a record five Worlds strongest men titles.

10 Eugen Sandow

Sandow kept weaseling himself out of competing against Louis Cyr, the fact that he's on the list is an embarassment... but to be fair, most of the other strongest men in the world during Cyr's heydey didn't want to compete against him either.

The Contenders
11 Kevin Fast

This is the guy whom Hercules, were he alive today, would be checking under his bed for at night. Unbeatable.

The only thing bigger than his muscle is his humility.

No ego, all strength. With the records to prove it.

12 Brian Shaw

He has won the WSM twice and managed to lift 1073 pounds whilst having a torn bicep.

Brian is a gentle giant

He will be soon.

13 Walter Long

He is definitely stronger than Kevin fast.
He could fight any number of people. Watch his films like the living ghost, pardon us, any old port and going bye bye.
He cannot feel any pain.
He tosses people around In his film the living ghost like they are weightless.
He was also a sharpshooter. He did a great action scene In his movie pardon us.
He was very brave.
He Never Lifted Any weights To Show His strength. He was unbeatable in fights which makes him the strongest. Kevin fast could lift and pull more weight than he could but Walter long. could beat Kevin fast in a fight

He didn't did any feats of strength to show he is powerful.
He acted in movies like pardon us, the living ghost, any old port, going bye bye. Watch these movies to see how strong he is.
He was brave.
In the film living ghost he pulled and threw people around as if they had no weight.
He was also a sharpshooter. He did great action in pardon us.
In his film any old port he was hit by a billiard ball and he didn't even feel it.
He never pulled planes like Kevin fast as no one did it in the black and white era. but he could beat Kevin fast.
Everyone were scared of his strength.
Watch his films to know his strength.
He is the strongest man ever born, stronger than anyone in this list.

14 Lasha Talakhadze

His records are 223 snatch, 265 clean and jerk, 12 kilos more then taranenkos best. Whose record stood for 30 years.

He is the new official strongest man as he broke the world record of Leonid Taranenko at World Championship of weightlifting(IWF) of 2017,held in Anaheim(USA). Taranenko held the record of total for 29(! ) years and still has the best ever record in clean and jerk with 266 kgrs from 1988.

Now his bests are 220 snatch and 264 clean and jerk.

15 Paul Anderson

Mr. Anderson's regular daily lift's often exceeded records. He would perform exercises such as a dumbbell curl on the old Mike Douglas show with a weight that was considerably higher than could be repeated by the world's best, well aware and seemingly unconcerned that no one from Guiness book was there. As an avenue to open doors for his story of faith, he let people debate the validity of his accomplishments, while those who excelled on a world class level, along with anyone who witnessed his feats could not get it out of their mind what they actually beheld.

Paul Anderson was the strongest man to ever walk the planet. Most of his feats of strength have never been matched, and many will never be. A back lift of 6,270 pounds! Nobody will EVER match that! I saw the guy bench press a ford pickup truck! Dude was a phenom!

No he could not bench press your penis Which is big and ugly! He can lift Sheetrock which wights tons but he can't do more then me! I am known to maybe lift 700 lbs of sealing! I am Cory Michael koller. Roar Roar Roar! Brock Edward Lesnar is also stronger!

16 Bill Kazmaier

He was well ahead of his time.

The best ever

17 Georg Hackenschmidt
18 Mark Henry Mark Jerrold Henry is an American powerlifter, Olympic weightlifter, strongman, and professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE.

He is the strongest human to ever live. Mark Henry holds the world record for combined lifts of snatch, clean & jerk, squat, bench press, and deadlift, totaling 3324.5 lbs, all in drug-tested competitions. This makes him the strongest competition-tested human to have ever lived.

His strength was limitless. He is the only human to ever deadlift, squat, and bench press over 900 lbs, 900 lbs, and 580 lbs, respectively, before the age of 25, all in drug-tested events (unlike the steroid users Eddie Hall, Savickas, etc.). He is even stronger than the great Louis Cyr, who never deadlifted 900 lbs before the age of 25. Moreover, Mark Henry never reached his full potential. If he had devoted his life to strongman and powerlifting, there wouldn't even be a debate.

Angus MacAskill's feats have never been properly verified and have been accused of being apocryphal. In terms of measured events, no one in known human history, by the age of 25, has ever been stronger than Mark Henry. Not Kazmeier (who himself says Henry is the strongest man ever), not Cyr (whose feats have been prone to exaggerations), and not Savickas.

Mark Henry is the strongest (known) human to ever live, and he never reached his full potential.

19 Eddie Hall

He is in my book the world strongest man ever right now. I've done a lot of research and it is really impossible to objectively tell that one man is the strongest ever. But my list would look like this:

1) Eddie Hall
2) Zydrunas Savickas
3) Bill Kazmaier
4) Brian Shaw and Thor
6) Louis Cyr
7) Mariusz Pudzianowski
8) Paul Anderson
9) Mark Henry
10) Vasyl Virastyuk

Only man to lift 500kg ever, 35 kg over previous record, (which was also his record), there is no possible argument.

Pound 4 pound the strongest of all time.

20 Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson

This guy should join wwe along with Ronnie Coleman because Hafpor Julius Bjornsson can beat Braun stroman and Ronnie Coleman can beat triple h. The game at wrestlemania 34. Both men if I where CEO I would love to hire them in wwe because they are both superhuman strongmen and powerhouses!

He is the Mountain

21 Stanislaw Zbyszko Cyganiewicz
22 Magnus Ver Magnusson
23 Jon Pall Sigmarsson
24 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee (November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Hong Kong and American martial artist, martial arts instructor, actor, director, screenwriter, producer, and philosopher. He was the founder of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid martial arts philosophy drawing from different combat disciplines that is often more.

He is a good actor

25 Dwayne Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

If Dwayne Johnson the Rock vs against Mark henry at wrestlemaina 34 he could kick and slap mark Henry's ass/butt. And slap it out of the Ring. Because his slap comes 100% quick and Mark Henry can't even be fast enough to encounter that type of stamina to world's strongest slam him in time! The rock is quicker and stronger then Mark Henry!

The Rock is so strong he beat booker t. And gave him a rock bottom. The Rock can beat anybody in the world with his 9,000 slap to send you flying. The rock is stronger then john cena!

Dwayne Johnson the rock should had been in the 2017 Royal rumble could have defeated Goldberg and undertaker!
