Actually NFL Strength and Conditioning is a risky gig...the San Diego Chargers was rumored to have 75% of their gym full of machines until Dave Redding showed up. When you get into the elite levels, a lot of the game is just keeping your athletes from getting injured, therefore you wont see much of the higher risk exercises. And if you do, you'll probably get fired as a strength coach. For example:

"What? You hurt my 10-million-dollar-a-year Quarterback doing tabata Kettlebell overhead squats??!?!? You're fired..."

We had some NFL players here at SDSU Strength and Conditioning over the summer and all they were doing was some agility drills, leg pressing and some smith-machine upright rows. I'm not saying that all NFL players train this way, but i do want to point out how riskier techniques aren't always favored in that realm (despite the fact that it would make stronger, faster players)

I'm a look-it-up kind of person, so this is what I found. The guy in question is Owen Schmitt, who as a 6-3 250lb sophomore (figure 19 or 20 yrs old)last year was selected as an NSCA All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year (one of 68 football players). His power clean of 445 was the best of all 68. His 655 squat was in the top 5, and his 4.5 40 and 4.1 agility times were close to top 5. Bench and vertical jump were a little lower. Of all 68, if anyone was even close to him in strength, they were WAY below in speed, and vice-versa. So I don't know if he hang cleaned 435 18 times, but I do know he's a strong, fast, scary SOB and if anybody in college football could do it, it would be him.

Great post, Jim! Man, what a freak of nature. It's like watching the World's Strongest Man contests. What keeps running through my mind is, "How are these guys the same species as me?"

Based on Jim's post, I'm gonna say that he didn't clean 435 18 times in a row. If he maxed at 445, I'd say it's not possible that he pulled off a set of 18. Perhaps 6x3 or 9x2...with alot of rest.

Scott,

Agreed. I think 435x18 would put one darn close to or over the 578 world record clean Neal mentioned. I also can't imagine any extended effort at that weight without straps.
