ULL Ragin' Cajun Lineman Taboris Lee Dead Lifts 755 Pounds

Taboris Lee reminds us all that football players are strong and we are not.

Taboris Lee, a junior defensive lineman for the Ragin' Cajuns, is doing things that quite honestly make me feel pretty incompetent in the weight room. At 6'2, 284 pounds, it's no surprise that Lee makes me feel this way, but he has taken it a step further with the recent release of this video...

Let's break down what you just saw further to show you what I mean. For one, he's dead lifting. This exercise is highly regarded in the weight room and is just as painful to follow through with. If I were to dead lift 135 pounds, let alone 755, I'd wake up the next morning needing one of those walkers with the tennis balls on the bottom of the legs.

755 pounds! Imagine lifting three Derrick Henrys at the same time... He just did that.. Imagine lifting a grizzly bear... He. Just. Did. That.

Lee ended the season with 29 tackles and one sack over his last four games, but this video might just be the most impressive thing I've seen from him while being with the Ragin' Cajuns. If he's able to translate his raw strength in the weightroom over to the field he could be terrorizing Sun Belt linemen in 2016.
