Carl Linich – Man of Iron!

Posted on Wednesday, December 31st, 2014 by John Wood

Longtime reader Carl Linich has been hitting the iron for a long time, and, as you can see by his choice of equipment, has been doing so in style. Carl is quite the strongman in his own right, check out some of his best lifts:

  • Standing Press – 270 lbs.
  • Bench Press – 402 lbs.
  • Behind Neck Press – 245 lbs.
  • Jerk from the Rack – 310 lbs.
  • One Hand Clean and Press – 150 lbs.
  • One hand side press – 175 lbs.
  • One Hand Bent Press – 215 lbs.
  • One Hand DB Bent Press – 205 lbs.

Carl was also a very good wrestler, winning the New York State Y.M.C.A Heavyweight wrestling championship twice and eventually turned pro in 1956.(Much thanks to Carl for sending in the picture.)
