Now that Johnnie Jackson has been declared "World's Strongest Bodybuilder", everyone thinks he or Stan Efferding are the 2 strongest in the IFBB. Now, just because Ben White lost the challenge it doesn't mean he should be written off-I think Johnnie would be pretty sore that Ben benches more than him and stated even on the reverse bench press he's stronger than Johnnie.
Firstly, I want to know,why is everybody saying Johnnie will lose?
821 lbs Squat
793 lbs Deadlift
That's 2221lb total
Squat (personal best): 825lbs
That's 2163 total
That's really not much of a difference-especially since Johnnie will be going for it this year-he has that drive and mentality
Otherwise,who do you think is the strongest bodybuilder around?
I think it is between these 2:
Ronnie "The King Coleman"
The following lifts were several years back and while he was carbing down and using less gear for it was nearer contest time and apparently tests are random
Benching with 200lb DUMBBELLS for reps
495-500lb Bench Press for reps
800lb Squat 1RM
800-805lb Deadlift 1RM
2250-2300lbs Leg Press for reps
Overhead presses with 315lb for 12-15 reps
Overhead Presses with 150-160 lbers for reps
T Bar Rows until the bar bends
Barbell Rows EASILY over 400lbs for REPS
Shrugs with over 700lbs for reps
I think that considering he was losing his carbs and was using less gear precontest, that he could do the above RAW in the off-season. Apparently he did a handful of sets before these max outs too.
2011-2012- RONNIE SHOULD COMPETE TO BECOME THE WORLD'S STRONGEST BODYBUILDER WHO HAS ALSO WON THE MR.OLYMPIA!!!
The second contender
At age 42,Jack set a world record of 1,033 push-ups in 23 minutes 50 seconds.
At age 43, Jack swam the Golden Gate channel while towing a 2,500 point cabin cruiser. The swift ocean currents turned the one-mile swim into a swimming distance of 6.5 miles.
Aged 45, Jack did 1,000 star jumps and 1,000 chin-ups in 1 hour, 22 minutes.
Aged 60, Jack swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf. Again he was handcuffed, but this time he was also shackled and towed a 1,000-pound boat.
At age 61,Jack swam the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge, underwater and handcuffed, but this time he was shackled and towed a 1,000 pound boat.
At 62, to commemorate the "Spirit of 76" United States Bicentennial, Jack swam one mile in Long Beach Harbor. He was handcuffed and shackled, and he towed 13 boats, representing the 13 original colonies, containing a total of 76 people.
JACK'S MOST AWESOME FEAT: At 65,Jack towed 65 boats in Lake Ashinoko near Tokyo, Japan. He was handcuffed and shackled, and the boats were filled with 6,500 pounds of Louisiana Pacific wood pulp.
Aged 66, Jack towed 10 boats in North Miami, Florida. The boats carried 77 people, and he towed them for over one mile in less than one hour.
For his 70th Birthday,Jack fought strong winds and currents as he swam 1.5 miles while towing 70 boats with 70 people (even if it's 70 in total it's impressive for a 70 year old) from the Queen's Way Bridge in the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary.
