We get it, James Harrison—you work out.
Earlier today, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker posted yet another insane training video, which shows him performing Hip Thrusts with 675 pounds:
I’m pretty sure a mortal man would snap in half under that kind of stress, but the 39-year-old Harrison is basically a superhero.
The Hip Thrust is a great exercise for developing power in your glutes, which allow you to explosively extend your hips. Your hips are a crucial part of triple extension (the act of firing your ankles, knees and hips simultaneously), and weak hips can be a serious drag on your overall athletic performance. Obviously, Harrison doesn’t have to worry about that. If you include Hip Thrusts in your routine, make sure to use a pad like Harrison—otherwise, you’re going to be in for a very uncomfortable workout.
