1807 Raw Total


#1

Found this video of Hayden Baillio, totaling 1807 raw at 23 years old. Hayden was one of the top shotputters in the country before he graduated Texas A&M in 2013.

Really blown away by this kids strength (especially his bench), so I thought it was worthy of sharing.


#2

I agree, really strong, but especially his bench is awesome. What's his bodyweight?


#3

I would hardly call him one of the top shotputters in the country. He was a lot like Jimmie Pacifico in that he was good with the 12 pound high school shot but never really made it to the next level with the 16 pound shot.


#4

Honestly I'm not sure. I would say he's probably in the 275's.


#5

Interesting. I havent looked into it too much, but I thought I saw he was throwing close to 21 meters. But again, I didnt look into it too much.

I remember watching his 75' throw on youtube and thinking "what the absolute fuck". I actually stalked his facebook... kid looks a gorilla.


#6

I looked it up. He was ranked #23 in the U.S. in 2013 with a 64-5 throw. He also went to the University of Texas and not Texas A&M. I think he has a lot of powerlifting promise.


#7

I stand corrected.

But yes, agreed. If I remember correctly, Ryan Kennelly benched 500 naturally and look where he went...


#8

I've met a couple of ex-shotputters in the gym before, they've all had pretty strong benches.


#9

I just found out yesterday he's in the 308s. Strong as shit.


#10

I'm an ex shotputter (actually more of an ex discus thrower) but my bench press sucks. Long arms are great for the discus, not so much for the bench press.
