Iowa offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs put on an eye-popping display of strength recently in the Hawkeye weight room.

Wirfs, a Mount Vernon native who stands 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds, snapped off four hang clean reps of 450 pounds as a crowd of teammates cheered him on. The video shared on Twitter by Iowa Football's official account has generated thousands of views and responses.
