Ndamukong Suh's bench regimen
By Kevin Seifert
Attention all gym jocks who slam the plates and bellow and hiss just so everyone knows you're benching: Ever wonder what an elite NFL player does for his daily workout? Here's what Detroit Lions All-Pro Ndamukong Suh tweeted earlier Monday:
Today was a good day inthe weightroom .Killed a set of 225,275,315,325 and ended on 345 all for 5! Almost back to normal!#Teamsuh #SUHsquad
Suh didn't specify he was using the flat bench, but that's the way I took it. In other words, here's what Suh presumably did Monday morning:
- Five reps at 225 pounds
- 5 x 275 pounds
- 5 x 315 pounds
- 5 x 325 pounds
- 5 x 345 pounds
A few days ago, Suh indicated that he ran 2.5 miles in 20 minutes.
Combine the numbers on those two workouts, and you get an idea of the freaky gifts of a 307-pound man. Next stop: Suh's promised soccer shootout with Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco.
