Thanks for the interesting information.
Not sure if the last part is sarcastic or not

Here's Tom Platz (bodybuilder) doing 500lbsx23

Various reports say that this was post retirement and that he was stronger in his competitions days, and he weighed around 200lbs when he did this (which would make this about a 2.5xbw set)

Tom like to play tennis apparently
