Over the past couple of seasons, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has emerged as one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL.

I think I can see why he's so good now.

Watt posted the following Instagram video of him lifting a 1,000-pound tire post-workout. That would have been impressive enough, but apparently Watt was able to lift and flip the tire a total of 30 times.

At just 24 years old, Watt is already a two-time Pro Bowler and was the 2012 Defensive Player of the Year. Given the workouts he's doing this offseason, it's safe to say that Watt is on his way to another big year.
