Do you Bench Press? Good for you! So does the ruler of the free world.
George W. Bush - love him or hate him, 185 lbs x 5, at his age deserves some respect.
Kevin Durrant - basketballer, 2nd pick in 2007 NBA entry draft 185 x big fat 0

I was most impressed by:
Brady Quinn - QB 350 lbs max, dude is lean 225lbs, 6’ 3" Since quarter back is a fineness position I would have thought it to interfere with his throwing. There’s a NFL combine video on youtube of him benching 225 x 24.
LaDainian Tomlinson - RB 220 lbs, 5’11 runs 40 yards in 4.4 sec, 41 inch vertical, throws a touch down from time to time also.
Will Smith - lousy rapper, good actor, funny guy, married Jada Pinkett.
Some may argue that performance on the bench isn’t indicative of success elsewhere,
but I think that it’s a pretty good indicator of hard work one puts in.
What are your thoughts?
