Paul Anderson

Paul Anderson was not only an Olympic gold medalist, but he won the National Champion in Olympic weightlifting twice and is considered to be one of the strongest men in history. He is also well-known for many feats of strength, such as 6,270 lb Backlift which is thought to be the greatest lift ever performed by a human.

One of the odd training techniques from Anderson involved digging a hole in the ground which was deep enough for a partial squat and filling the barrels with junk from the said hole. However, this time that just wasn’t heavy enough so he decided to add two cute ladies on the top.

In other occasions, Anderson trained with more regular training tools, which in this case were Iron Wheels.
