That's great John Thomas but I still don't believe it. Agassi is not as tall or as heavy as he lists himself. If you get the chance to see him up close you will notice that. All pro athletes, in all sports, exaggerate their ht/wt info. I played DI college football and the guys in Agassi's weight class that benched >300# were much, much more developed muscularly. He doesn't have a well-developed chest and the accessory muscles recruited during the bench press motion (lats,triceps,front deltoids) are very average. He also has a narrow shoulder girdle which is a major hindrance in benching. I hope he can bench 300#. I am just skeptical.
