Michigan RB Blake Corum Went Beast Mode On The Bench Press

Written by Tony Ghaul

During the 2022 season, Michigan RB Blake Corum rushed for 1,453 yards and 18 touchdowns on 247 carries. Through the air, he added 11 receptions for 80 yards and one touchdown.

Corum suffered a knee injury as Michigan took on Illinois in Week 11. After attempting to come back the following week against Ohio State, he lasted just two carries. Those would be his final carries of the season.

Following the game, Corum underwent season-ending knee surgery. He looks to be training hard to get to elite level.

On Monday, the Wolverines posted on Twitter to show Corum pumping out 30 reps on the bench press.

In 2022, Corum rushed for over 100 rushing yards in eight straight games. He had a 243-yard, two-rushing touchdown game against Maryland in Week four.

This past NFL combine, Michigan defensive tackle Mazi Smith had a team-best and defense-best 34 reps. Corum’s 30 reps would have beaten Rimington Trophy and Outland-winning center Olu Oluwatimi, who had 29 reps.
