Watch New York Jets rookie offensive tackle Mekhi Becton absolutely crush it at the gym, throwing up push presses with ease.

His 5.1-second 40-yard-dash wowed the world, but his work in the gym on the heavy stuff is nearly immortal.

New York Jets rookie offensive tackle Mekhi Becton is a beast on the weights. Just one look at the 6-foot-7, 360+ pound beast makes it easy to grasp such an idea.

Recently, offensive line trainer Duke Manyweather allowed everybody another glimpse into just how Becton beasts it at the gym.

Becton, 21, represents Joe Douglas’s first-ever pick as Jets general manager. Eleventh overall in the 2020 NFL draft, the Jets are thrilled to have taken the mountain of a man who’ll be tasked with protecting Sam Darnold’s blindside.

Here, Becton is push-pressing what looks to be 225 pounds with ease. It looks to be 225 thanks to (what looks like) the two 45-pound plates on both sides coupled with the standard bar. Then again, I could be 100 percent wrong here if the equivalent to each plate is a ridiculous 90 pounds (which is unlikely in this case).

Don’t be fooled; the video is only seven seconds long. The man isn’t push-pressing to perfection over 100 reps. Although some may believe it’s a possibility considering he can move trucks.

It’s just another example of the Mekhi Becton feats of strength and athleticism that continue to wow New York Jets fans on a daily basis. And interestingly, this one is rather ordinary when thinking about the Jets’ new left tackle.
