"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

In light of recent talk of WSM, I was thinking who is my favorite WSM. I would say that Jon Pall Sigmarsson would be my absolute favorite. With Jouko Ahola coming in second. It was awesome watching these guys in there prime, and there physiques were phenomonal. Especially Jon Pall in 83 and 84 WSM. Anyone care to comment?

Bruce Wilhelm is the most hilarious of them all - Funny Guy! Don Reinhoudt is one of the nicest individuals you'll ever meet. Bill Kazmaier is a class act and Svend Carlson is a super nice guy. All the strongmen I have met are great guys and very easy to approach!

He was genetically gifted in the beard department and he definitely reached his potential.

Capes is still a household name in England. He's really into budgies I believe. I love the fact that he's STILL the most well known of all of our strongmen. For example, if I ask my dad to help me with shifting furniture or a bit of fetching and carrying, his reply will always be..."Who do you think I am? Geoff bleedin' Capes?!"...

Obviously Gary Taylor for me, but lets not forget Gary is a silver medal Olympic games weightlifter, runner up in EFBB British finals twice, world record in the Overhead press and just lots and lots more. Thats a good all rounder, not just a strongman.

I do not necessarily have a favorite but i could watch the replays all day long of any event. One that pops up alot is from the 70's where Lou Ferrigno and Franco Columbo where competing. I do not think you would see any current body builders compete today.

One guy though that I saw once who was a complete freak of nature was this British guy nicknamed Stumpy. I could be wrong about the nickname but I saw him deadlift and his legs were absolutely enormous.

He coudn't walk properly at all. He won the deadlift portion and was by far the shortest guy to compete. maybe even the shortest ever. I cannot confirm this however. Anyone know who I am talking about?

The KAZ and Jon Pall, these new guys don't even come close. Most of them are posers at best. Wilhelm is the funniest of the group, he is always holding court at the Oldtime Strongman Reunion, he was also world class in too many sports to name, a legend in the Bay Area (San Fran). Most of the current EuroTrash are "mouth breathers".

I do not think Jon or Kaz comes close at all to the Mariusz or big Z, but Jon and Kaz were greats of there time, and love em.

However lets look at some facts, In Kazs day he had hardly any competition, now in this day and age, Mariusz has a huge amount of competition

Kaz best log lift ever was World's Strongest Man Comp 1988, 170kg.

Mariusz best log lift in Poland, 195kg,

Mariusz also lifted these logs, 112kg then 125kg then 155kg and then 165kg and all these lifts in only 46.56 seconds,

Savickas WR log lift 210kg,

Mariusz Carrying of the Husafell stone, a 400 pound stone, beat the world record of 115M the first time he did the carry.

Mariusz did 150M and dropped the weight, but could had gone much further, he said he could have made 200M.

Kaz best 75M.

Mariusz has done the five stones under 20 seconds, Kaz best time 27 seconds.

but I will say it again, Jon and Kaz were greats of there time, and love em.

I hated Wilhelm from the first time I heard his stupid comments on WSM.

He was lucky in 1978 that he beat Rheinhoudt and he was smart to retire from competition in 1979.

Kaz.

I knew Gary Taylor very well from both lifting and my occupation ( prison system ) , BUT Kaz for me really looked the business.

He was quite the blowhard, always going on and on about the "superiority of the Olympic lifter".
