Is Tank Abbott really bench pressing 600 pounds that easily?

I Love tank but World Class lifters struggle with this supposed weight, so how does it make sense that a bar room brawler/college wrestler does it like nothing?

Two words: Leg days.

Hehe. Say what you want, Tank was the best mix of boxing and wrestling. He boxed for 5 years prior to MMA. Was an all American in wrestling.

The first hint of his boxing background was that he was the only one using a jab in there .

And his hand speed was pretty good when he was fresh.
