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.

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

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 ...read 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.

Yes Mark Henry has broken records YET ALL of them have been broken.He is getting in the way of the real strong people like Zydrunas Savickas who is the actual Worlds Strongest Man.

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 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.

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

The Contenders
11 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.

12 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

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.

I have watched his movies. All the stunts and action was real. He could really fight all people on earth.
He just tosses people around like the people are made of paper. He should be on the top. Watch his movies and vote him.
Forgotten hero and strongest man ever.

He twisted the heads of two people and turned them around so that when the people were walking north they were looking south.

He also broke the legs of two people and wrapped them around their necks.
This is true. So he should be on the top.
The men didn't die.

13 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.

14 Lasha Talakhadze

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.

Several differend achievements are described in this list from men (some not even athletes).
I clarify that :
THE ONLY OFFICIAL WAY TO TEST AN ATHLETE'S STRENGTH IS THE OLYMPIC-STYLE WEIGHTLIFTING ACCORDING TO THE RULES OF INTERNATIONAL WEIGHTLITING FEDERATION (IWF).
IWF was founded in 1905 and has 187 countries-members. Olympic weightlifting is an official sport of all the modern Olympic Games (since 1896). The first World Championship was awarded even before (1891).
The Georgian Lasha Talakhadze is the world recordholder of Super Heavyweight category.
Two of his records (snatch and total) are the best of all times. Due to the reconstuction of the categories the clean and jerk record is still (as of April 2019) of Leonid Taranenko.

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!

He was lifting record weight in the 1950s when steroids weren't even a consideration. Absolutely the strongest human ever.

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.

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.

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 Stanislaw Zbyszko Cyganiewicz
21 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!

22 Magnus Ver Magnusson
23 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

He is a good actor

24 Jon Pall Sigmarsson
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!

Strong brave actor wwe star smart cool.
