    Greg Kovacs vs Victor Richards

    I was curious on this and wanted an opinion from actual bodybuilders.

    Who was physically more “monstrous”?

    And who was stronger overall?

    I do NOT believe Richards did 650x5 on bench, that is approaching Kirill Sarychev-Level lifting.

    If by "monstrous" you mean bigger, then Kovacs was bigger. He had about 6"-7" on Vic. Some of their measurements were actually pretty close though outside of height. Vic was a much better bodybuilder on stage though and its not even close. In regards to strength, you honestly never know. These guys have videos of them lifting crazy amounts of weight but it all just depends whether you mean head to head, pound for pound, etc. Plus you can honestly never separate claims from reality.

    Same size except

    They were approximately the same size, obviously not exactly equal in measurements because they are 2 different human beings, but i personally feel that greg would take the lead in the monster appearance because of his height of 6 foot 4...theres claims that he was 6 ft 2 and 6 ft 5.. So lets say 6 ft 3.5 ...as far as strength?? Not perfectly equal but close. Even though you dont believe richards benched press 650 for 5 reps, we gotta stick with that info.. .i've heard kovacs benched 700 for 2 reps. So would you consider that equal to 650 for 5 reps ? Maybe ..maybe not

    I think a lot of these huge bench claims were either done on smith machines or hammer strength equipment, and you know how numbers tend to get exaggerated over time.
