I'm getting to damn old... NFL Combine..

I was watching some of the NFL Combine today while at the gym.

I saw some of the quarterbacks/recievers do the bench and the range was anywhere from 19 reps with 225 to the most of 25 reps.

I did 19 reps a few months ago, but I wasn't slamming it off my chest nor did I have a spotter.

It's crap like this that makes me realize that I'm getting up there. The weights seem to be getting heavier and I don't recover like I used to.

I think the best anyone got was a lineman who did 39 reps.

Anyone here do anything close to 39?

I can do 12 with out a spotter. Probably can get 2 or 3 more with a spotter. I know I'm very weak.

I think i should be able to hit 225 about 25 times.
I tried something similar once and hit 185lbs 35 times. That was 2 years ago when i was 185lbs.

Hmmmm.
Never tried.
I did once try out 80lb dumb bells for failure.
I failed on 54 reps.
I'm quite a bit stronger now though.

I'm thinking 25 and a spotter is doable. Especially if I can bounce it like some of the guys were doing.

My brother in law uses that message so he has an artificially high flat bench. On a upright at 24 hour fitness we were at the same weight. I tend to go slower, not bounce and burn out faster.

Haven't focused on my 225 repping in a long time. I did 3 reps the other week though.

I never really saw the point of repping it that many times, especially with shitty form.

Nope, the days of being tempted are gone. I'm in the stage of "what could have been"....

I'd have been the next natural Mr. Olympia, just like Ronnie Coleman!

I hit 225 25 times without a spotter last week.(I did it just because i knew the combine was coming on) I think I could get around 28-30 with a spotter that would let me bounce it off my chest like the guy on the combine does, plus he is an incredible motivator.

I am actually more impressed with these guys that have like a 40'' + standing vertical. I tested mine at 35.5'' and i feel like i am flying..ha ha. I think if i shed a few lbs I could up it an inch or two (right now 220lbs) but I am carrying around about 14% body fat.
