Courtney Upshaw is freaking huge, no wonder he sets the edge so well.
Now, let him go flip some Raiders, Squeelers, Chargers, Slurs, etc!!!
I don't think that was CGI.
I don't think they needed any.
MAN'S A BEAST
If yall think that was legit, I have this bridge I'd like to sell you. Great price, too.
That's about as real as this commercial ....
that was awesome
In flipping it from the side, you obviously don't need to move all of that weight--you're picking it up on a lever, the fulcrum of the lever being the tires on the off-side of the car. Back when I was in engineer school, I could have drawn a free-body diagram and given you a reasonable guess as to how much weight he'd actually have to pick up to do that. As it sits, though, how much weight do you think Upshaw can deadlift? I don't know, but I'm betting that if you can deadlift 800 lbs or so you could maybe do that.
Personal experience here--about 15 years ago, a friend and I turned our other friend's Jeep CJ-whatever sideways in its parking space by picking up the rear and moving it sideways (both of us, at the time, were 6'2, 220-ish and muscleheads). A couple of years ago, a different couple of friends and I lifted another friend's MR2 up onto sandbags so he couldn't drive. I'm a decently strong guy, but I ain't no Upshaw. I think it's possible, particularly if they lightened the car some (removing the engine and transmission would go a long way).
His body type reminds of James Harrison. Not quite as freakishly athletic as Harrison about 3 yrs ago (post HGH cycling), but If he works on playing with leverage a little more, he's going to be a mainstay and a pass-rusher too.
I got to meet him at an event, he's huge, hands like catchers mitts. Very nice young man though. Was great with the kids.
Upshaw is a beast.
You don't think Upshaw could have lifted that cheap ass car? That man is country strong.
