4ft 4in tall Anton Kraft has benched an incredible 504 lbs – earning him comparisons to the Marvel character Ant-Man, who was immortalised by Hollywood.

Anton, 52, has been powerlifting for 10 years and says he has highest bench press record of all time for his weight class. Generally speaking, Anton is the only person in the world that can bench 4x his bodyweight.

In his pursuit of ultimate power he says he has ‘technically died’ five times before being resuscitated – ranging from drowning to falling out of a window. Doctors also fear he may have a heart attack if he keeps up his all-action lifestyle – but Anton isn’t budging.
