My brother Paul Madsen sets new weightlifting record!!!

My brother Paul Madsen is getting ready for his junior year Colorado State for his football team.  It seems like just a few years ago Paul was my “little” brother…..now I’m afraid of him breaking me in two!!  Paul even set a new school record for the power clean this summer in the weight room with a power clean of like 380 pounds.  From what I’ve heard, most NFL teams don’t have their players max out with power cleans because it’s “too dangerous.”  (With all due respect to the NFL, I like that college football programs still let their athletes push themselves to the highest level under close supervision in cases like this).  CSU is gong to be great this season so watch for them!!!
