Derrick Henry bench press, squat and clean stats Skip to main content Derrick Henry weight room

Derrick Henry is an absolute beast for Alabama. A former five-star recruit coming out of high school, Henry has lived up to his billing for the Crimson Tide.

Henry rushed for 2,061 yards and 25 touchdowns entering the national championship game and won the Heisman Trophy. He has a rare combination of massive size, strength and speed that rivals an Eddie George or Herschel Walker. Certainly in the weight room he is close to Walker.

Henry is listed at 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds. He blew everyone away in spring testing for Alabama in 2015 when it came to weight lifting. This is how he tested:

– bench press: 440 pounds
– power clean: 345 pounds
– 35″ vertical leap
– power squat: 500 pounds

Not that you don’t believe he can lift those kinds of numbers, but here’s the visual proof. Video of Derrick Henry squatting 500 pounds came out this fall:

“He’s one of the hardest workers on our team,” Nick Saban said of Henry in August. “If you were going to give a Most Valuable Player in the offseason program for just finishing, running hard, finishing every race, finishing every drill, he would have gotten it or been in the top three at least.

“He has a real burning desire to be a really, really good player, and works really hard at it.”

You don’t get that kind of size and strength without at least working for it. It sounds like Henry certainly has. When you couple it with his speed and massive frame, it’s easy to see why he’s so tough to take down.

You can also tell by social media how much the guy loves the weight room, which is a great sign for NFL teams.
