Bill Hinbern is a strength historian, a strength athlete who is dedicated to over 50 years of teaching the value of strength and physical culture and the owner of the world famous Superstrengthtraining.com web site.
Eric and Bill kick the show right off by talking about Americas greatest strongman, Bill Kazmaier.
Kazmaier, known as Kaz in the strength circles, was a powelifter, strongman and a professional wrestler. His big claim to fame was the World’s Strongest Man title which he held from 1980 thru 1982. He proclaimed himself the strongest man to ever live. He was at that time the most dominate force in strongman easily handling the competition.
Eric and Bill talk about Kaz’s powerlifting career.
Kazmaier officially became the first human to bench press 300 kg (661.4 lbs). The bench press was done raw with no gear whatsoever.
Due to many injuries in his powerlifting career Kaz could no longer compete at such a high level and went on to Strongman.
Kaz was such a talented versatile athlete that he tried out for the NFL’S Green Bay Packers and had a stint in World Championship Wrestling.
Kaz is truly an inspiration to us all. He was a man that put it all on the line in his chosen sport at the time. Injured or not he would always find a way to compete at the highest level and win!
