Yeah, I mean _look_. Not the actual lifts. He still looks strong and in shape, although retired for 10 years.

His Hand / Gripping strength has always been among the very best in the world honestly if there's anywhere id say he'd still beat most people its with grip.

Well him and Joe Kinney.

Only ever rumours and guess work.

His main strength was always his arms. I could well believe he had a massive bench.

He won a bench for reps event in a strongman comp, beating Hugo Girard. I believe his bench numbers.

Never heard that rumour before.

I can't believe those curls.
Svend and magnus doing piss easy reps with 140kg on a barbell.
The strongest curlers are cyplenkov and sarychev and even they couldn't do it that easy.
Straight barbell vs Ez bar is a huge difference.

Hahaha, do you seriously believe that? Who's your source? Internet rumours can be made any time by anyone, and counts for s**t. I read somewhere that someone allegedly got their plates back red-painted. That's too absurd. I'm amazed some people actually believe these outright deranged lies, and takes them for facts just because some internet guy said it was true.

So Svend is in on the lie, or did Magnus fool him as well? And Colin Bryce? Grin

No real person with a name and an identity has called Magnus a liar and a con artist. That should be enough for anyone not completely mad not to believe this absurdity.

Magnus had very weak squat and a weak deadlift and could still reach so many WSM finals and the podium another four times only through his amazingly strong upper body. Those curls are real.

Yes that video is probably real, as Magnus was a strong bencher.

However he lost a bench for reps event in a strongman comp in 2008 against Derek Poundstone, which makes me suspicious. Poundstone was not a 270kg+ bencher.

Poundstone best bench was 260kg I believe.

I believe Magnus' bench numbers, dude was a unit and had huge arms.
