Have you ever heard of Louis Cyr, French Canadian national? he is famous for being the strongest man who ever lived. Louis lifted 227kgs (500lbs) with 1 finger and was able to backlift 1967kgs (4337lbs). What a beast: he was 1m79 and reached a pretty heavy weight with his 140kgs! Louis Cyr is someone you can’t forget my dear lifters.
