The Correct answer to the best of my knowledge is PAUL EDWARD ANDERSON, who lifted more than 6,270 in the year 1957 according to Guinness World Records. You can hear his story as a radio dramatization by "Unshackled!" Radio Ministries. Program Number 2521. They also have a comic booklet about him for like fifty cents or something. -T.G.

im not sure if the weight is correct, but i believe it was Louis cyr, and he lifted 4,175 pounds on his back... maybe im exagerating (im not super sure), but iit was a lot of weight!

Yeah, Louis Cyr sounds right (one of those old time strongmen). But that poundage... I donno....
