Get Shredded!
Anyone a Bill Kazmaier fan?

I grew up watching him on World's Strongest Man and always loved his bouts versus Jon Pall Sigmarson.

So it was prob 2006/2007 when I was heavily competing, and was also working for WSM and Giants Live.

Kaz was the announcer for all of our shows. I knew him for about 3-4 years and one day after a super series at Mohegan Sun I asked him for a photo with him. He smiled at me and said "nope" but I'll take one with your girlfriend.

She looked super uncomfortable and I honestly thought he was joking. He walked away and left me standing there in shock.

Bastard lol.

So anyways some of the older guys told me they had seen Kaz back in the day bench 600+ for a few reps. Also that he curled 100lb Dumbells per hand for reps of 50.

Crazy stats right?

Love him! I’ve watched every ESPN Strongman competition/Highland Games , all that stuff just excites me. I watch Em come and go, only a few look like bodybuilders (almost all don’t besides Marius P. Kaz keeps you interested and into it . Great commentator. I’ve been to a few competitions live around the US & Other countries as a kid. Now mostly the Expos (one of my favorites) .

I met him at an expo 20 years ago. He was at the Metrx booth with Pujanowski.
Kaz was not very friendly.

In 1987(?) he was training at the gym I was at in SD. I watched him take a 45lb plate like a dinner plate, with a single hand, and set it down on the vertical leg press stack. I don’t think I can do that with a dime.

I went over near him and stood looking at the mirror across from us. I looked like a hobbit next to him.

This was my inspiration growing up and the beginning of my obsession with a thick yoke, sounds like he was a bit of an a-hole....I think I like him more now😂

Met Kaz and took an immediate dislike to him. A prick...
Never saw someone so in love with themself though, dude never stops talking about himself.
He got into some hot water creeping on a young girl on IG this year.
Very odd guy, ole Onion-Head Kaz...
He never got over Ted taking his bench press record, even made up some nasty stuff about him.
Ted always talks nicely about Kaz in interviews. Told me some behind the scenes stories of Kaz many times, but always kept 'em off the record.

Dude has major mental issues, very insecure "ole onion-head"...

Truly enjoyed Kaz when he was competing in WSM.......you could tell the man absolutely loved what he was doing and had the pure competitive fire. I thought he was a great commentator as well. I didn't know he had a prick side to him, though. Too bad......but still one hell of a competitor and true strongman trailblazer.
