Craig Monson was a huge bodybuilder who spent several years in San Quentin Jail. He competed at a ripped bodyweight of +270 lbs at a time when the biggest bodybuilders were around 240 lbs. When I say ripped, I mean just sheer BEASTLY size with NO bubble gut / bloated belly like today's Mr Olympia giants. He even made Sergio Oliva look small! At a height of 6ft 2, he dwarfed competitors with arms over 23 inches!

Strength Feats included 400 pounds on bench press for 4 sets of 25 reps which eventually led to 500 lbs for double digit sets then finishing up with 200-pound dumbbells for all at Muscle Beach to witness. He was also known to manhandle 315 lbs skull crushers as he reached back grabbing the weight from off the floor.
