we had to do the 225 rep two seasons ago..
i was around 258 pounds and did it 22 times, although, with FULL extension. one rep max was 390..

but yes, 43 times kinda does put things in perspective

Edit: Wow, I am a huge NFL Draft loser.

First thing I thought too, except I was thinking Igor Olshansky. They did 42, and 41 respectively.


Out of Oregon St. and Hawaii, those two defensive tackle powerhouses.


... which San Diego thought would be better suited on DE... :-P

But I suppose you can't argue for replacing Jamal at NT. And Igor's adjusting alright to the switch.

His one rep max as of a few years ago was 700 pounds. I think the world record is 770. So that also puts things in perspective.

I'd be more impressed if Larry did this while weighing about 50 pounds less. What is he, 325 before dinner...335 after? 43 times is still impressive, but I'd be more impressed to see a 200 lb guy do 20 reps @ 225.

I was 205 when I did it 15 times. Does that impress you? :-b



10 years later I weigh 230 and probably couldn't bench 225 more than twice. For whatever reason, lifting weights, being strong and building muscles isn't quite as important as it used to be. :-b

I'm sure it has everything to do with being married.

not me..i'm only around 210 lbs now and can rep 225 still around 20 times and if i were really training hard, im sure i could do it more....

and you know what, it doesnt compare anywheres near being able to lift it 43 times...

now if i were my same weight and could get it 30 times, that would be impressive

i havent stopped lifting since the age of 13 but dont lift as hard as i did when i was playing

We did this every few months in college when I played football a few years ago. When I was 21 at 190 lbs I could do 225 17 times, no back arch, no bounicng, full extension. One rep max was 335. I havent maxed 225 in awhile but I am 23 now and can do 275 7 times at 200lbs.
