    5-6 reps of low 400s?

    Seems like a lot to me.

    Bench press is not the best way to determine someone's strength.

    Bench Pressing is over rated. My cousin and I would work out together at the gym, he is 5'11" 185lbs and would work out with 315, while I'm 6'1" 210 I would work with 225. When we got on the court I would over power him easily. I've seen him press in the low 400, that still don't translate to athletic strength. Too much emphasis on what works out with. I don't recall the tweet stating what he maxed.

    I want to see how explosive this guy looks when the ball is hiked and what kind of leverage he is getting when it's time to block; and trust me people, these kind of skills can not be determined or measured by a measly bench press. Stamina will be a big question too.

    If you multiply his 40 by 3.74 then divide his max bench-warm up bench/max bench into that product then multiply that by the universal football constant you get a good idea how strong he is.

    Waters could curl you with one arm. Sit down and be quiet.

    While I agree a guy his size should be putting up more weight, it's not just about his bench. How much does he squat? How much does he deadlift?
    As someone who lifts, you should know bench alone isn't a true measurement of strength.

    I don't have those measurables to go by on him. However, I do agree that there are other factors that determine one's strength. If he benched over 500 with a handful of reps, I would be impressed, and I would expect his squat to be even higher with that kind of frame.

    And he can curl you with his pinky. So what's your point? He gets PAID to lift weights and block. I have desk job and get paid for my brain.

    I don't think I have read anything like that. I have read some serious concerns that at his age a year layoff is going to be hard to come back from.

    Never trust a guy that tells a coach "put this weight on my bar" lol, I guess that comes with the territory.

    500 lbs raw for reps? That would make make him one the strongest raw benchers on the planet, particularly outside of the powerlifting community. Do you even lift bro?

    Exactly. The guy didn't say that was his max, he said he was doing reps. Throwing around that kind of weight multiple times IS a very good sign he that is very strong. I know some guy's brother's friend knows a guy at his gym that warms up with 400lbs, but I'm still impressed.

    Hilarious thread. Professional football players, including some of the strongest on this team are impressed by the guy's strength. Tells me all I need to know. Sean Lee described it as "casually put up 5 to 6 reps in the low 400's." I bet his max bench is a lot closer to mind blowing than anyone here. I heard one rumor about it, but I'm not going to share it here.

    Players don't max lift during the season. They do all their heavy lifting in the offseason.

    Waters is a big upgrade over Bernadeau , even if Waters doesn't practice once and comes straight off the couch.
