1906: Arthur Saxon failed six times to bent press 350, though he locked his arm six times with the weight. Only those who understand the bent press can understand how magnificent a feat it is to lock the arm with 350 ONCE.

Ooops, 1896, not 1996. Thanks to David Pelto for catching the typo.

In fact was 1906.

Interesting :) . I just read about Roy McLean online, and now I know who the other half of that collection was credited to.

As for the Jan. 26 post of Joe's....

165 Chuck Nootens 200-200-295 = 695
Eugene Parker 195-225-270 = 690
Ed Papierski 195-205-275 = 675

Chuck Nootens, the former father of Fred's daughter in law, did what I consider and astounding feat. And that was that Chuck as a heavier lifter later on snatched 300 for about 25 years in a row. That is amazing....very few champs can do 300 at all, but Chuck was like the Energizer Bunny...he just kept going and going and going.

Fred can fill in the details, but this was essentially what Chuck accomplished with that 300 or better Snatch!
