They claim 1200 but if that was the case he would have been capable of clean and jerking a lot more

Not true. There are some power lifters who are at the top of he food chain that can't do 350lbs clean and jerk.  There is still a good argument that he was the strongest guy ever. His lifts prior to Dianabol and power lifting gear is insane.

The problem you'll find is the Anderson's huge lifts are self reported. Most of his other lifts are exhibition ones too. He's generally credited with a #929 squat, his best C/J #440, Olympic Press #408. He's generally considered an OL lifter of the brute force variety.

Bench - don't know, but I'd guess low - mid #500's based on the overhead numbers.

Deadlift - Claims low #800's, but had trouble here -

Here we go, good article on it -

Unquestionably strong as a bull and a legend, BUT ...

His squat claims, etc. are bullshit, from a “legal” standpoint.

Used to squat for an hour while drinking a gallon of milk. Maybe max numbers were inflated but I bet his training percentages were higher in relation to his max due to all the volume.

I saw him stand flat footed and jump up onto a table about 4 foot high...'He was a running back in College at Georgia...

Looked into it more his 460 clean and jerk is the only record you can safely say he accomplished. As his other lifts where performed at carnivals and casino's not the most honest places he is said to have squated 920 in competition but that's debatable on depth. He couldn't bench 640 or what ever that would have been the world record back then still very strong dude but any 360 plus pound man on steroids could get close he would have been on gear to as he was in the Olympics when it was legal to use so the steroids free claim is hard to believe. So still a good lifter but nothing special now a days . The reason his squats are debatable is many say his legs were to fat to make debth

that's not a 300lb dumbell or a 560 lb jerk I'm even wondering if he had fake weights as his exhibitions where so much more impressive than his competition lifts plus he worked for casino's and carnivals he wasn't squatting 1200 or benching over 600 if I'm wrong so be it

         those were the claimed weights. i heard guys often would slip a few dumby plates in for lifting exhibitions.

Anderson's 6,270 lb backlift was supposedly done with a table covered with car parts.  But I've never seen a picture of it.  It used to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the greatest weight ever lifted by a human, but in more recent editions it has been omitted.

No one's ever seen it outside of people that claim to have been there. Joe Roark rightfully savages the claim here and here -
