    No chance he gets 50 reps. The guys that get over 45 reps are COMPLETE freaks of nature that are essentially power-lifters with endurance. Ben is a large, strong human being but I do not believe he is one of those freaks. Regardless, go get 'em big man!!!

    Hey Dawg365, Javon Wims says you're wrong. Ben already did 50 back in 2017. Coaches stopped him at 50.

    No way Cleveland did 50 reps at 225 in 2017...as a teenager!!!! There are maybe 50 human beings on the planet that are capable of accomplishing that feat and the vast majority of those are full grown men that are also professional lifters. There is a reason the record is 49.

    Javon Wims may have said it but that doesn't mean it is true. Is there a chance Wims was exaggerating with the camera in his face?

    I will make a friendly wager with you @kevinelders, Cleveland does 50-I will put $50 in your name at your local steakhouse but if he falls short...you do the same for me. You willing to put your money where your mouth is?

    Good luck Big Ben. You will need it!

    Not sure if I want him to.....his value may go up. Hoping my KC Chiefs could pick him up in the 2nd/3rd round.

    Dawg365 Justin Ernest did 51 in 1999.

    i have no reason to believe javon was lying. Ben cleveland has been a “full grown man” since about age 14. I’ll let him speak for himself on the 225. And he has stated recently that his goal is to break the record. Argue with him about it.
