I'm prob one of the few who know who Matt Chan is. Joe looking great, although it shows the extremes that these guys have to take to get to the weight required to be a lineman in football. Also gives confirmation to the athletes who dwell under all that fat, too.
Along similar lines, when he was head couch of the Browns, it surprised me to learn that Pat Shurmur was an offensive lineman at Michigan State.Would be interesting to know what he lost in terms of lean muscle vs body fat. He wasn’t chunky by any means before and long term carrying that much muscle mass just isn’t food for the joints.
I have a cousin who played nose tackle for OSU in the early 90’s. He was pretty damn good and might have been able to at least get on a practice squad bust chose to preserve his hands and become a surgeon (probably the better move). Anyway, he was pretty big in college and trimmed down in a fashion similar to Joe.
Surprised you don’t see more lineman do it, but I suppose most are probably burnt out by the end of their career and just stop working out.
