Each year the NFL invites the best college football players to their scouting combine. Each athlete is given the opportunity to perform measurable drills before an audience of pro scouts, coaches, doctors and executives. One of these tests is the bench press in which the athlete must bench press 225 pounds for as many reps as they can. The current, all-time record for this test was set in 1972 by Justin Ernest who did 51 reps. In this video Olly Pierce performs 59 reps.
