Among Hermann Goerner's many feats of strength were the following notable lifts:

---One-handed dead-lift 734 lbs. (1920, Dresden, Germany).

---Dead lift 595.5 lbs. using just two fingers of each hand (1920).

---Pinch lift 111 lbs. (1934).

---Leg pressing 24 men on a platform (1921).

Let's see Ronnie Coleman do that.

Very impressive. But remember that Ronnie Coleman is a BodyBuilder and not a power lifter. Two different animals. Still Ronnie Leg Presses 2300 lbs, Squats 800 lbs, and Deadlifts 800 lbs. But, now that Jay Cutler has taken the Mr. O title (2 years running), Ronnie has announced his retirement. However, he has said “never say never”, and he still trains. So even though he has retired, he’s not saying it’s impossible that he might make a come back.
