February 18, 2010
Stan "Rhino" Efferding, arguably the strongest man in the IFBB (and quite possibly the planet), has signed an exclusive contract with AMI/Weider Publications on Thursday.
The 43-year-old Efferding is the 2009 NPC Masters Nationals super-heavyweight and overall winner and currently holds the highest raw powerlifting total an astounding 2,221 pounds that includes an 821-pound squat, 794-pound deadlift and 606-pound bench press. (Yes, raw as in no lifting suit or bench shirt).
Efferding is set to compete in the IFBB Phoenix Pro, his first professional show, on February 20. He's also thrown his name in the ring for the second annual Olympia Strongest Bodybuilder this September at the 2010 Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.
