Springbok prop shifts almost half a tonne with outrageous ease
It probably comes as no surprise that South Africa’s and Racing 92’s 121kg versatile prop Trevor Nyakane is strong, but if anyone needed any proof, the 33-year-old recently shared a video that shows it.
The 59-cap international recently posted a video on social media of himself repping 400kg on the leg press. The thing is, there is absolutely no doubt that he could have busted out many more reps, but ultimately he is not training to win Mr Olympia, he has a match to play this weekend and no coach would be happy if he completely obliterated himself in the gym.
Nyakane’s teammates even joked that 400kg was just his warm-up, which might well be true.
The prop will hoping to put his leg pressing to good use this Saturday when the Parisian outfit travel to take on Pau in the Top 14.
Take a look at Nyakane’s antics in the gym:
