previous Hand and Thigh Lift record holder was the New Jersey Strongman, Jack Walsh. He did a Hand and Thigh Lift of 1900 pounds in 1950 at Trenton, New Jersey. This beat the previous record held by Louis Cyr of Canada, who had a Hand and Thigh Lift of 1897 pounds, set in 1896. Will it be another 50 years before Joe Garcia’s Hand and Thigh Lift record is broken?
