I don't know. Is this impressive?

    looks like it's 405lbs+. Not bad, but from a weightlifter/power lifter's perspective that is not a good lift. 3 red lights for that lift.

    I'd say putting your athletic carreer on the line by asking Miley Cyrus to spot you is pretty impressive.

    This.

    He's still pretty strong to be able to push 405 like that, but compare his lifting to someone who could actually bench 405.

    This is just the first one I found -

    Players must be stronger now. I saw Rock Perdoni bench 425 at the Area III dorm weight room back in the day and the reaction was like an Olympic world record.

    Well in 2017 Nick Chubb was benching 405-410 pounds so if you think of the workout monster chubb is then you can say this isn't bad all be it a little ugly but for a true freshman not bad he's only gonna get stronger

    Looks like I saw a 5lb plate on the end which account for the 415, which, btw, is about twice his body weight (if he's still under 210).

    I was always told arching you back was not good but you could lift more by doing it. (Be careful with that, young man)

    All that said, this kid is INCREDIBLY strong for someone his size and age, not to mention his other athletic measurables (speed, quickness, cutting ability...).

    So to answer the initial question, YES, that's impressive.

    Arched back is okay, it is the butt off the seat and bounce assistance off the chest that gets flagged. Still strong af.

    Its a big lift for a non-OL but I'd expect upper classmen OL to 1-rep max the bench at close to 400 lbs+. Technically, it was 3-red lights but nobody in the football weight room does competition level lifts. They're just pushing weight around to get stronger. I personally prefer olympic weightlifting to power lifting since oly lifts translates better to explosive athletic movements. Power lifting has it's benefits in the trenches, though.

    Leave it to the stingtalk buffoons to call technical violations on a high school football players bench press. I certainly hope Collins calls a redo when Jamiois rips a uga defenders face off taking it to the house if his stiff arm technique isn’t perfect.

    If lifting was easy, it would be called your mom.

    That's right, I forgot he's a freshman quarterback throwing that iron around like JFN.
