Kevin Hart benches 225 to spite Cam Newton’s challenge

This is gold. Kevin Hart was caught on video responding to a challenge made by Cam Newton. The challenge? Bench 225 pounds. Hart more than delivers. He reps three strong, and goes as far as to give a shout out to the Panthers.

Hart is a lifelong Eagles fan.

I’m not surprised. Being a longtime weight lifter, the best and most explosive lifters have always been little dudes with stocky shoulders.

Hart fits that description.

The two, including an unknown guy by the name of Ice Cube, met up at Harding high school in Charlotte, North Carolina. Newton was there, gifting the school with a $7,500 check for an upgrade on their weight room.

Students got more than new equipment. They got a memory that will ripple across their campus for years.
