Lamar Gant and Joe Bradley "The greatness of Lamar Gant cannot be overstated. From a longevity perspective, here is a man that set his first world record at age 15 and his last world record 18 years later. Here is a man that won 16 IPF world titles and whose best deadlifts were, are, and forever shall be, untouchable. The second best 132-pound deadlift of all time is over 75 pounds behind Lamar’s 688 mark – the biggest poundage differential for any record in any weight class. No one can touch his 595 squat using the gear of the day and only Mighty Joe Bradley’s 650 squat trumps Lamar’s. Joe B’s 400 raw bench has never been exceeded, and these two tiny titans were, apparently, a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon that we shall likely never see again."—Marty Gallagher for Starting Strength
Fascinating piece of powerlifting history! Lamar Gant weighed 130 lbs. when he deadlifted 661lbs.–over 5 times his bodyweight! Joe Bradley weighed 130 lbs. when he squatted 650 lbs. and benched 400 lbs.!
