Arthur Saxon (April 28, 1878 – August 6, 1921), born Arthur Hennig and nicknamed “The Iron-Master”, was a German strongman and circus performer from the late 19th century into the early 20th century. Saxon is most well known for the bent press, with which he set a world record of 168 kg (370 lbs) (although there are claims that he has done 175 kg (385 lbs).) as well as the “two hands anyhow” lift of 203 kg (448 lbs).
