The 225 test is pretty. It gives you a number to look at. Everybody loves to watch bench press. There is a very low risk of injury. But it has absolutely zip to do with testing strength or power.
Yep. Im pretty sure NFL coaches take things like long arms into account when comparing athletes. It just seems to me there are better options available. Talking about testing strength and power, I seem to remember study stating that the VJ and Broad jump were the best predictor of on field success, and what do they test - power output.
