    The Greatest Strength Athlete You’ve Likely Never Heard Of…
    by Marty Gallagher

    “If a fiction writer were to sculpt Doug’s tale, tell it true without embellishment or ornamentation, it would likely be rejected as outlandish and unbelievable…Periodically, Giants walk amongst us, and it is important that we examine them and learn from them – the great sin is to let them pass unnoticed, for they have lessons to impart that can assist us in our own quests.”

    Because english not my first language i have a really hard time expressing how much i appreciate these "barbell history" articles! Great writing and very important and interesting information makes them iconic. startingstrength.com is an oasis of barbellknowledge and makes 99% of the other information on the internet on the topic redundant. Thank you very much.

    In his warm-ups in Maui before squatting 986 he worked up to 855
    pound raw squat without a squat suit or knee wraps. This lift was done in a casual fashion – he didn’t
    even request spotters. This 855 raw squat was no big deal; just another warm-up; he didn’t even bother
    to tie his shoes for the attempt, and he was shirtless.
    Then he quit powerlifting.
    Incredible.
