5 45s...two on each end of the stick.  Like I said, I was a gym rat for years.  Also a personal trainer before entering the Service.  

Until my multiple ortho problems, working pecs/front delts was always easy for me.  My max lifts were never that impressive but I could knock out the bench or dumbbell press all day; do 200 push-ups or 100 diamond PUs. Sorry if anybody believes that I'm lying.  

Not a lot of NFLers are that strong, compared to pro weightlifters.  In my heyday, pound for pound, I'd stack my gym numbers and my 220 lbs body up against anybody in an NFL weight room.

"Strength?"  Maybe not but, when I was a gym rat in my mid-30s, I warmed up on the bench with 225 lbs.  I could do as many at that weight as I wanted.  Never tried to reach a max number of reps but, one day, I stopped at 75.  To me, it was like doing pushups.  However, the most weight I could ever bench was 385 lbs.  I'm 5'10" and I've got a long torso and short arms/legs.  I'm always amazed that the combine record was only around 50.

Best reading my dad ever had in the house.

How can any school be ranked when nobody knows what the team will be wearing from week to week, year to year?  OSU, ttun, Wisky, PSU, Neb, Iowa are about the only stable unis I can think of.
