NFL Combines in the Gym

it’s xmas break,so gyms packed. this 1 kid(college football player)is running his mouth about nfl combins(which i know nothing about)talking about on 225 bench last year guys only did 40. he says he can do 38 no problem. now mind you he’s in the gym with his fan club.puts 225 on and starts pumping them out,only on way up goes no higher than a 3 maybe 4 boards high. am i missing something here,or is this the “new” way things are done? me myself,i laughed at him.
