Why New Year’s Fitness Resolutions Fail

While we might all think that January 2019 was the longest year ever, the truth is the new year is only 6 weeks old. If you are like most people, your New Year’s Resolutions included some kind of pledge to “really get in shape THIS year”. So, how’s working out working...

Jordan Peterson Saved My Life

There is a reason this website has been relatively silent for a few years. From the fact that my father died in a car accident in 2016, to disintegrating personal relationships with people I thought would always be there, to several failed business ventures; to call...

Carb Nite vs. Carb Back Loading

This is a question that gets quite often, should I do CarbNite or Carb Backlaoding? And unfortunately, like most things fitness related the answer is “it depends”. What it depends on is YOU, and your current level of fitness and your current goals. As a...

Carb Backloading vs. Renegade Diet

Ok, so you may be wondering how does Carb Backloading compare to the Renegade Diet.  Honestly there are some similarities and some differences.  I have tried them both, and for me personally I prefer the CBL because it seems like more of a lifestyle than a “diet”. The...

The Keys to Exercise Selection for Athletes

It’s interesting how much dogma exists in training.  Despite all the information that is available to us today, there are still many things that we do without even thinking about WHY.  For instance take jogging.  Athletes that participate in predominately anaerobic...

Run Faster Jump Higher Throw Harder

What if I told you there was a particular muscle that controlled not only how fast you run, but how high you jump and how hard you can throw?  If you are an athlete that combination would probably be of interest to you.  Let’s face it, run, jump and throw pretty much...

The Crossfit Model For Mediocrity

Ok, ok I did that thing that writer’s do.  I used a really controversial sounding title to get you to read this.  If you are a crossfitter you are probably already in the middle of mentally drafting a scathing comment about how wrong I am.  Don’t forget your stopwatch...

The Best Workout Supplement

Now that the holidays have come and gone, we make another attempt at starting the new year right.  This is that wonderful time of year where gym owners salivate over the renewed enthusiasm for fitness.  The first 90 days of the year will see fitness centers packed...

The Airing of Grievances Fitness Edition

Another holiday season is upon us.  I don’t know about you, but I am not really sure where 2013 went.  This year, as they are want to do, just seemed to fly by.  And just like the many years that proceeded it there were some high points and some low points.  We all...

Gifts for Strength Athletes

With only a few shopping days before Christmas it is crunch time for many of you last minute shoppers.   I have to admit before the advent of the internet I was a Christmas Eve buyer myself.  I would do my shopping throughout the year so I knew what I was getting. ...

What’s The NFL Combine Bench For Reps Record?

Justin Ernest Bench For Reps

If you are reading this, chances are the 225lb Bench For Reps is one of your favorite parts of the NFL Combine. That and the 40yd dash as always the two events that people most talk about. I do have to admit that as much as I enjoy it, benching for reps is not a very good test for a football player in my opinion. Wouldn’t you rather have Offensive Lineman that can push 350lbs explosively, like the sport requires.

==>Take the Bench For Reps Challenge<==

Anyway, chances are if you are reading this you aren’t a Pro Football player. Maybe one day you will be, but in the meantime you just like to see feats of strength involving the bench press. And you hope to find a good bench press program to improve your strength and increase muscle mass.

NFL Combine Bench For Reps Record

  1. DT Justin Ernest…….2012…51
  2. DT Stephen Paea…….2011…49
  3. G Mitch Petrus………2010…45
  4. DE Mike Kudla……….2006…45
  5. DT Leif Larsen……….2000…45
  6. DT Jeff Owens………..2010…44
  7. DT Brodrick Bunkley 2006…44
  8. G Scott Young……….2005…43
  9. DT Tank Tyler…………2007…42
  10. DT Isaac Sopoaga……2004…42

There’s a little motivation for you, so you can see how you stack up against the soon to be pros. Just something to think about while we wait for Chandler to release his new program. And if that doesn’t work, check out the video below to see Stephen Paea setting the NFL combine bench for reps record in 2011. I remember when I first watched it he didn’t look THAT strong through the first 15-20. But he was doing what he needed to do to pace himself. In the end the last few reps looks relatively easy, and he should have had 50. Of course his record was short lived, as Justin Ernest of Eastern Kentucky came along at the 2012 NFL Combine and put up 51 reps. Unfortunately for Justin, he only lasted 1 year in the NFL, while Paea is still with the Bears. Hopefully when this proram is released, next week you will be inspired to break a record of your own. And with his Bench For Reps program, you will have the blueprint to do just that.
