The article makes it pretty clear that his dedication to the weight room began this off season as he looked at himself getting man-handled on film. But even if it were true he'd been lifting all along, how'd he get through college in a Division I school w/o hitting the weights? Incidently, having lifted myself, 3 sets of 8 reps at 225 probably translates to a Max BP of 300+ pounds. One would assume he's going to be a much better blocker this year and should definitely (finally) be a threat in the short/medium range game.
