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.

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

He isn't strong this much

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.

2 Zishe Breitbart
3 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.

This guy can lift over 4000 pounds on his back and he's not number!

Louis cyr is the strongest human to ever walk the planet

Louis Cyr had no steroids. And think about this. He restrained 4 horses. 4 living breathing, raging horses. I don’t care if you can bench press 5,000 lbs or back lift 10,000 no feat of strength can even touch that. Louis is the strongest ever

4 Zydrunas Savickas

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.

There is a worlds strongest man competition. Zydrunas has broken more records then any strong man who ever lived.

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.

Best ever no doubt

5 The Great Gama

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

He is strongest.

He was unbeatable in wrestling

6 Joe Greenstein
7 Andre the Giant 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 more.

I was so sad about how he died

He should be in the top 3

He is a wwe hall of famer

R.I.P Andre the Giant 1946-1993

8 Kevin Fast

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

Moved a plane five times larger than the Hercules, the plane they use in worlds strongest man

Quiet strength... and he keeps doing more feats of strength... my vote. :-)

9 Bill Kazmaier

He was well ahead of his time.

The best ever

A complete beast strongman and powerlifting champ.

I met him

10 Walter Long

Walter Long served during both world wars for United States. He attained the rank of lieutenant colonel at the end. He didn't have a single scratch on him after the war. Enemies ran away after hearing his name. He also did a shooting action scene in his film pardon us but I know he is a better shooter in real life.

People were afraid of his strength when he was alive now after his death they have forgotten him.

Vote him put him on the top.

His complete name is WALTER HUNTLEY LONG.

The Contenders

11 Mariusz Pudzianowski

He won a record five Worlds strongest men titles.

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

BEST - Magik

12 The Great Antonio
13 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!

He also bench pressed my penis which is extremely huge and thick

15 Lasha Talakhadze

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

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.

16 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.

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

The strongest man is not just a stage name. He has broken many weight lifting records just like all these guys. And has a better job then all of them.



He's awesome

27 Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson

Very Strong

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!

28 Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

29 Dwayne Johnson 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.

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

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!

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!

30 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

31 Mike Tyson Mike Tyson Michael Gerard Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title at 20 years, four months and 22 days old.

I think mike Tyson is stronger then Ronnie Coleman at toughness he is just like a Antonio Cesaro but in boxing. And bit someone's ear off in the boxing ring. Ronnie Coleman may be able to lift more but I still think Mike Tyson is stronger also because of his temper!

Mike Tyson is the strongest man out of everybody on this website. and Mike Tyson may be able to lift and press tons of pounds unlike useless thousands of pounds that these guys use like Brian Shaw and Angus macskill. Mike Tyson is still the strongest person alive.

I feel bad about mike Tyson more then the rock, Ronnie Coleman. Mike Tyson is the strongest and the greatest!
I may be huge for my age I am 16 220 pounds 5.11 ft tall.
He is the real boxing Storm!

32 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

According to me he is one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a long lived out of Ronnie Coleman, angus macskill, the rock, Brock lesnar. He workout for tons of years, he could squat 205 pounds. Leg press 350-390 pounds. Benches 265 pounds. Deadlifts 950 pounds. He is the King Kong, he is Shrek the ogre, he is the Incredible Hulk, ultimate beasten incnatie, and dangerous for a regular beaning on earth! Strongest ever in 80's,17's,90's way before 2000.

33 Geoff Capes

He was a Olympic shotputer as well as double WSM winner.

34 Ronnie Coleman Ronnie Coleman

This guy is way stronger then that Jackson guy on dead lifting history YouTube Ronnie Coleman could kick his ass if he wanted to. Ronnie Coleman dead lifted 802 lbs/ pounds! He is the strongest man alive!

And also on the new strong feat video a guy was dead lifting 800 lbs Ronnie Coleman can kick his ass of Crouse! He's a professional powerlifter and strong man!

35 Bill Goldberg Bill Goldberg William Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former professional football player, and semi-retired professional wrestler.

Bill Goldberg shows off strength in wcw wwe and more with his jackhammer where he lifts his Challenger above his head and hold him there then slams him down

You can take Bruno samartino, Braun strowman, andie the giant, the great kali, mark Henry, and giant Gonzalez and they still don't equal this manly powerhouse bill Goldberg because he is a destroyer out of Brock lesnar. And that best destroyer of all mankind and the wwe his streak is probably 103.21 over the undertaker. He can bench 750 pounds!

Bill Goldberg needs to return to wwe raw, he needs to crush and destroy triple h. Just like he was going to destroy big show he can bench 750 pounds come on, he knocked the beast incrnatie, give him a second chance and let him be coo/CEO of wwe he slaved Brock lesnar better then you at survivor series, is 6.4 foot tall and can bench 750 pounds he can smash you he is the strongest wwe member ever!

Goldberg also knocked two superstars at once out of the ring, way better
Then ryback, ryback is like Joel for example he can bench press 565 Pound's
I am more like Bill Goldberg who can bench 750 pounds, I love Goldberg
He's the strongest wrestler out of the rock,undertaker, ryback, Mark Henry.

36 Big Show Big Show Paul Randall Wight, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name Big Show.

Big show regularly benches 450 pounds, can back flip 4400 pounds, regularly lift 500,550 pounds. Big shows has shown he is stronger then andie the giant just by flipping over a 4400 pound jeep, if big daddy v. Where still wrestling big show could put him on his shoulder. And his KO punch could destroy everyone on earth inculding Brian Shaw and Louis CYR!

37 Leonid Taranenko

He is the official strongest man ever as he was an Olympic and World champion in weightliting.

38 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States.
