i see what your saying 17 i think they might but i doubt it because there muscles probably haven't gotten any speed work in a while and the muscles have adjusted and become slow. since lifting is not done that explosively if he ran about as fast as a normal man i would be surprised. it would be like saying lance armstrong has a higher vertical leap than somebody because he does a lot of bike work. Although i see were your coming from. if he was that athletic though he would be on worlds stongest man making even more money.
