10 reps at 225. There are some guys in the NFL who can't do that.
With all respect, I'm about 99.99% sure that those plates are not 45's or 20 kilo plates.
They are either 25lb or 15 kilo bumper plates. So She's either doing 145 x 10 or 177x10.
Pretty good for a girl.
225x10 is good for a man, but similarly not extraordinary. I'd say just about every reasonably sized gym in America has at least one, if not more, fellows who can do this.
I'm in my early 60s and periodically do 225x10 and I'm not very genetically gifted.
Says 45 on the side of the plate. 4 plates. Bar is 45. 45 x 5 = 225. But ok.
Those look like 45 pound plates to me......
What a Woman !!!!!!
joe, he said he's 99.99% sure, not 100%, haha!!!
If you check the NFL Combine each year, there's always a handful of guys who do 1-9 reps on the 225 lb bench press. Usually, they are punters, kickers, and cornerbacks. I've seen running backs and wide receivers do poorly, too. I met Brooke in Omaha in June. I mentioned her impressive bench press, specifically her 225 bench for 9 reps. She did not refute that. She's a former powerlifter. What is it all the kids say? "Haters gonna hate."
Wow, she is strong!
Gave me a real boner watching her power
On her IG page she even says it's 225. https://www.instagram.com/p/B0VopubAGtK/
Yes it’s 225. Anyone who has set foot in a gym knows that. This is extremely impressive. However, NFL players can typically do 225 x 20+. The record is 225 x 49. It’s true that there are cases where potential draftees in the combine fail to do even 10 reps, though. And hitting 10 x 225 is much more than most non-athlete males can do. This is an awesome feat of strength.
Bo, I've been setting foot in the gym for 50 years. Those plates look to me like bumper plates which can be the thickness of 45s but are actually 25s. Joe found the data and I'm good with that. Her performance is easily 2 sigma.
Keep in mind the guys at the NFL combine are bouncing that bar off their chest using momentum - not relatively strict form like Brooke is....
Well... she is also being assisted by her spotter. She only got 6 by herself. It looks like she probably could have gotten the seventh too. Still, what is she, like 125lb? 225lb for 7 reps is very impressive for a small woman. That plus her bar speed on the initial reps shows that she is used to training with more than that.
I have no doubt Brooke is stronger the bench press than most NFL Kickers, punters, and probably a good number of receivers and defensive backs.
Just powerfully sexy
Plates are definitely 45 ones, it's clearly visible in the frames of the video
Wow, such POWER
