In the overall, the guy in my avatar. Doug Murray looks less like a hockey player and more like one of those barrel-chested dudes from the strongman competition.

Jagr wins the squat competition running away with it.

Chara...don't know what he'd win, but he'd probably win something.

Pound-for-pound, I'd go with Wayne Simmonds.

Most strongmen and powerlifters and olympic lifters are way shorter than Chara.

I have a hard time seeing Chara as the strongest powerlifter. Its probably a player built like a barrel. In powerlifting the core strength is most important. Doing a 1000 pounds in a leg press machine doesn't equate to being strong in a powerlifters (deep) squat. A good example are the fake numbers put up by fotboll teams when they do 1/4-squats. And donīt even start me with the deadlift. My experience with deadlift is that genetics is the most important factor.

Benchpress is probably the only excercise where a player like Chara could compete as the strongest guy in the NHL. The core isn't as important.

In powerlifting generally the posterior chain is the most important.

Anyone who has even a little bit of experience in a weight room knows to be suspicious of numbers over 315 for bench and 405 for squats for players in the NHL (free weights, full ROM). It wouldn't shock me if there were guys who use that weight regularly, but the number is probably only a handful.

This.

but

I think with the work NHL players put it, it would be pretty simple to push those numbers.

You're name after buckethead, and his best song ever?

Back to the topic, i imagine Big Buff is the strongest guy in the nhl, chara is so thin it's not conducive toward max strength at all. All these numbers people are spitting out like Letang benching 450+ is ludacris. Fact of the matter is i imagine the average bench in the NHL is less than 300. Hockey players simply aren't that strong, it's almost a joke when people post 200lb players saying how they're strong on the puck or, pretty solid so they can probably lift a lot.

Found this article semi-relevant to the thread. Shows how much more impressive it is that some guys are able to maintain their strength throughout the season.

Haha those stats are nowhere close to reality. Those numbers are elite Super Heavyweight powerlifting numbers. The raw world record in 275 class was just set at a 2300 total with a smaller bench and squat than those numbers. I wouldnt believe any numbers I hear for NHLers unless i saw video of them doing it legit with full ROM and good form.

I can vouch for this. Went to high school with him. (carvinsig)

Actually short limbs have mechanical advantage in most lifts.

Deadlift might be the one exception as long arms can help.

Thanks, Ryan I'm assuming? Technically it was 495 IN school, but I did more at Nautilus in the same time frame. Regardless, the point wasn't to brag like I believe he assumed I was doing, it was to show what an "Average Joe" can do for comparison.

i was reading an article on st louis a while ago regarding his workout routines...im pretty sure it said he would do 50 rep sets of jumpsquats with 225, which is pretty crazy...im sure the article is easy to find on the internet but i dont want to look for it

it was easy a few years ago when Georges Laraque was in the league. now, it's a bit more difficult. i have no idea who would be the strongest, pound for pound or just in total bench/squat/deadlift weight.
