Max Rep Bench Press @ 225lbs
Not only is this upper-body strength test featured in the NFL Combine, it’s also the official test of the “Church of Bobby Maximus.” You know my goal is to be the “Big Guy,” and there’s really nothing that packs more mass onto your upper body than doing a lot of bench reps with a heavy weight.
Load a barbell so it weighs 225 pounds. If you cannot bench that weight, that’s no problem. Use a bar that weighs equal to your body weight. If you weigh
150 pounds, for example, use a bar that weighs
150 pounds (or even lighter, if need be). Make sure that
the bar touches your chest at the bottom, and your arms lock out at the top. Do as many reps as possible
