Tristan Wirfs is Super Strong, Hang Cleans 450x4

CAPTAIN MARVEL is the #1 movie in America and there's a new AVENGERS trailer out this morning, but the best superhero footage of the week came via @HawkeyeFootball and Tristan Wirfs. You've probably seen it by now, but take a gander at this: 

That's Tristan Wirfs, Iowa's true junior left tackle, doing four reps of 450 lbs in the hang clean and making it look easy. (Well, the first three reps, anyway.) That ain't right. He just might be a mutant or the last survivor of an alien planet or the result of a government-sponsored super-soldier program. 

Here's a video from a slightly different angle too: 

Wirfs broke the previous Iowa program record in this lift of 443 lbs, held by Brandon Scherff. Scherff was suitably impressed: 

We are all A.J. Epenesa's expression watching that lift:

So yeah: Tristan Wirfs is INCREDIBLY STRONG, y'all.
