Chase Young's latest workout defies the laws of gravity

Chase Young's latest workout defies the laws of gravity

In a world that has been so unpredictable over the past few months, one constant has remained: Chase Young putting together insane workout videos.

The No. 2 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft has yet to get the opportunity to show off his skills with Washington. However, it hasn't stopped him from having his strength and athleticism on display for the world to see.

From benching an insane amount of weight to releasing a hype video that mimicked a blockbuster movie, the excitement about what is to come for Young has even reached NBA star LeBron James

Somehow, Young has found a way to out-do himself with his latest session that went viral.

The first drill that features Young easily clearing incredibly high hurdles shows that gravity doesn't really apply to him. Young is 264 pounds of pure muscle, and yet he gracefully leaps over each obstacle in a way that makes it seem effortless. The fact that he can jump that high at that size is absurd, and it also means quarterbacks should get ready for plenty of passes to be deflected.

Young then easily transitioned into a full out sprint that has to be giving offensive linemen nightmares. For good measure, he also showed off his strength later in the video with leg workouts that can make you feel the burn just watching them. A walking lunge with a ton of weight on his back? Not a problem for Chase Young.

There's no denying that Young has the size, strength and overall athletic ability to be a star in the NFL. Soon enough, he'll finally get the opportunity to show how these workouts are only part of what makes him impressive.

Redskins' Chase Young the lone unanimous selection to Big Ten Network's All-Decade team

Redskins' Chase Young the lone unanimous selection to Big Ten Network's All-Decade team

After just three seasons at Ohio State, Redskins' draft pick Chase Young walked away from the program as one of the sport's most dominant defensive ends in recent memory.

The pass rusher had a stellar junior season with the Buckeyes in 2019, finishing with a nation-leading 16.5 sacks in just 12 games, earning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Bednarik Award (given to the country's best defensive player) honors. Additionally, Young was named a Heisman Trophy finalist this past December, becoming just the ninth defensive player since 1982 to be named a finalist for the award.

The Big Ten Network is currently unveiling its 2010s All-Decade team, and it was no surprise to see that Young was one of the players named to the squad on Thursday.

However, what was a tad surprising, and quite impressive, was that the No. 2 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft was the lone player to be unanimously voted to the team.

For an All-Decade team that includes NFL Pro Bowlers Saquon Barkley, Allen Robinson, Joey Bosa, and Taylor Lewan, that's quite the impressive feat for the ex-Ohio State pass rusher.

The awards just keep coming for Young, who was named Ohio State's Male Athlete of the Year in May. Redskins fans hope many more honors are coming in the future for the team's talented new pass rusher.

DeMatha alumni Chase Young and Paul Rabil execute socially distant jersey swap

DeMatha alumni Chase Young and Paul Rabil execute socially distant jersey swap

Chase Young hasn't played a single snap for the Redskins yet and he's already swapping his No. 99 jersey with other pro athletes. 

Fellow DeMatha alumni and PLL star Paul Rabil got things started on Twitter by offering his No. 99 Atlas jersey for Young's, all the while abiding by social distancing guidelines. 

Young then responded, which feels like an appropriate time to mention how nonchalantly these guys throw around the triple-XL jersey as their jersey size. 

Rabil and Young, who share the same high school, have a mutual admiration for one another. A few months after the Redskins made Young the second overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Rabil revealed he reached out to the young pass-rusher to congratulate him. 

Chase is great, man," Rabil said in June. "I shot him a note because obviously I think he's a generational talent, his athleticism, his size and his work ethic... I'm pumped to see him wear No. 99. We have that in common. Sharing some additional commonalities is something Chase and I went back and forth on."

From Rabil to Markelle Fultz, Young has plenty of support from local stars as he gets set to begin his career with his hometown team.
