On this edition of #MaxOutMonday, UGA football star Nick Chubb raised the bar.
Most notable, though, is that the bar he raised weighed 600-pounds. The Georgia running back appears to be stronger than ever.
After sustaining a serious knee injury that limited him to only 92 carries in 2015, Chubb rebounded in 2016 for 1,300 yards rushing in 2016.
It appears he isn’t slowing down on getting himself stronger.
Coach Kirby Smart is fortunate to have one of the top running backs in the SEC returning for his senior season. Even in the face of multiple injuries, Chubb decided to forgo the NFL Draft and return for his senior season.
While speaking at SEC Media Days, Chubb said that he would buck the trend of recent star running backs choosing to sit out their teams bowl game.
It appears Nick Chubb is everything coach Smart could dream of in a running back. Strong, powerful, able to run players over or run past them, he figures to be one of the most dominant runners across the FBS again this year.
If the reps he’s logging with his squats are any indication, tacklers are going to have a whale of a time bringing him to the ground.
