Stephen Paea - Combine Bench Press Record

On Sunday, February 27th at the NFL Scouting Combine, Stephen Paea of Oregon State broke the Combine record by bench pressing 225 lbs for 49 reps.  He effortlessly blows through rep after rep with the  tenacity of a machine, stopping shortly at 43.  What would mean the end for most people, only means a slight delay for Paea as he routinely presses out another 6 reps.  For some perspective, when people Paea's size press out 30 reps, they are considered generally strong.  The previous record was 45.

Only the Mighty...
