"The super heavyweight Don Reinhoudt does 408 kg in the squat. He attempted a world record 950 pounds (431 kg), but it was too heavy for the junior from Fredonia.
Anyways it will be interesting to follow his progression. He might be able to soon challenge the world champion John Kuc. That is if John Kuc still competes as a
super heavyweight. We are informed that last year his doctors ordered him to lose 30 kilos of bodyweight. His high bodyweight got him worried, high blood pressure etc."
This was in 1970 and from 1973-1976 Don Reinhoudt won the IPF world championships 4 times in a row in the super heavies! He did 934 lbs completely raw in the squat and
a massive 2391 lbs total raw! In 1979 he won the World Strongest Man and beat among others the legendary Bill Kazmaier.
John Kuc lost his 30 kgs and competed in the -110 kgs class where he got numerous world records and world titles.
