James Harrison pushes near-2K-pound sled for insane workout originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

It’s been nearly five years since James Harrison played in the NFL.

But he certainly hasn’t lost the strength that helped make him one of the game’s most feared linebackers.

The 44-year-old posted an insane workout video to his TikTok account Thursday. Harrison stacked up 42 45-pound plates on a sled, which in total equals roughly 1,960 pounds. The 2008 Defensive Player of the Year then pushed the near-2,000-pound sled about five yards.

Just another Thursday for James Harrison apparently.

Based on the caption of the TikTok, Harrison seems to have his sights set on going above 2,000 pounds for his 45th birthday in May.

“Thinking about going for 45 plates May 4th 2023,” the caption read. “What do y’all think? #45thbirthdaygift”

We’ll definitely be on the lookout for that video.
