I read where he did 28 reps in the Bench Press I believe number 3 among the RBs. One pf the guys that beat him weighed 246 lbs.
Good for him....hope he does well enough to be a late round pick!
I thought he was in the 30 club while at Miami
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
UTough! Good sh** Mike!
But everytime different lamp its very close though
ALL ABOUT THE U
I was thinking he was in the mid 30's honestly. I know 28 is great for a RB but I thought he was freakishly good at benching.
They make you come closer to lockout in the combine that most do at their colleges. This puts more taxing on the triceps a much smaller muscle group (smaller muscles fail first on compounds movements) that the anterior deltoids and pectorals.
I've never seen what UM counts for reps but IMO the combines way is legit. It's not like they can't bounce it. Just goes to show the whole 30-40 club should read "30-40 club".
True. lovelamp51. I am a professional member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association [# 03-02-06-045} and have been to many seminars, camps, etc. What constitutes a complete rep in what most people do would not count at the combine. Often these "partial/loose" reps are done to build endurance. However many strength coaches are now also stressing partial reps in the last 1/3 of the movement to aid in the lockout portion of the lift. You sometimes see it with board presses that are very high off the chest.
