I realize though how far in front of everyone Johnson was at his sport, but it gives you a great idea of what elite level strength for speed athletes looks like. 500lbs is more than fine for sure, but I should be more precise. If I was looking to be a high level player, that is the number I would shoot for. It all depends on your goal, a 400lbs is a good goal for the OP.
I squat 225 on a good day, long way to go apparently!
