What do you guys think? I think it's real, but why would Kaz say such a thing

I've squatted 500lbs raw (1 rep). It's not that special a weight. Seems very doable to me that a bodybuilder with colossal legs wearing a suit could do 23 reps. Remember, bodybuilders are good at repping.

Whether or not Platz used Fake Platez...Kaz would say such a thing because he's Kaz.

I like Kaz but I think he always like to play down other athletes capabilities of his era. Sigmarsson and Capes come to mind, and also Ver Magnķsson.

Iíve heard him say such things as Sigmarssonís best bench was 480lbs and he did 500lbs for 10. Though he was beaten in 11 of 15 comps they competed lol.

Strange really. Legend though.

Like others have said though, 500lbs for 23 doesnít seem too far fetched. Iíve done 230kg x 8 myself and Iíve not even done 300kg yet

Id say Platz lifts were real.

And Kaz's reason to lie is his colossal and largely unfounded ego.

Kaz is little more than a pantomime dame.

Even a shoot putter with fooked shoulders and a pudding belly smashed his back doors in in competition...

I believe Platz's feat of strength was legitimate (I think I may cry a little if I found out it wasn't)

I doubt that is be far off 20 reps with 227.5kg at the moment, I did 9 with 245kg a few weeks ago and Mr P's legs were far bigger than mine!

Platz was older. Like Kaz said which I agree who looks just as fresh at end of set as beginning with 500pounds? I did a 500 pound squat. I almost had an annaism

Seeing the circumstances of the 500 x 23, it wouldn't surprise me if the plates are fake.

How dare to compare semi-god Kaz to someone like Platz. Platz was not strong at all and his form was s**t.

Bill Kazmaier is a great strength athlete.

But he is also his biggest fan and in some respects woefully insecure in the face of people perceived to be better than he is.

(In addition to pissing on his strongman contemporaries, he was a mark for himself in wrestling and was very firmly put in his place by Brian Pillman, who was a legit crazy man and hard nut)

I have no doubt that a bodybuilder, famed for the greatest legs of all time - who has legs like a god damn race horse - could bang out x amount of reps with 500lbs.

That Kaz says otherwise is pretty much a ringing endorsement that Platz was legit.

Kaz is the greatest thing to ever happen to strength sports. I believe Kaz.
