    How much can you bench?


    I maxed out on one rep the other day for the first time in years. I was surprised at how much i could actually do.
    I weight 190 and i benched 295. i am sure i could do 300 if i tried again since i know what i can do and would not have to work my way up.

    so how much can everyone else do? and include weight too so i can learn what is good for certain wait classes.

    ps: i know this is a sophmoric post but i dont care. (sh1t smily is not working)

    Not as much as I want to 365 @ 205, but I squat over 600- my lower body and core is much stronger than my upper.... :good:

    been lifting for 2 years. 315@180lbs. But in the 2 years im had a broken spine(8 months out of lifting and had to start over) broken hand (2 months out of lifting), and now torn ligament in wrist (so far 5 weeks out). Everytime I get somewhere i get crippled and ave to start over lol. But I rarely do high weight low reps.

    I don't powerlift at all, but I can do 215x8 reps. Can I calculate a max from that? Probably not. I weigh 182 pounds at the moment.

    Your quoted 1 rep max would be 267x1

    Been several years since I've done flat bench. All I've been doing since is incline.
    incline: 225lbs x 12 reps @ 200lbs

    Just weighed myself today, and I'm down to 191lbs. I can still lift 225 incline for reps (but I don't touch my chest anymore - afraid for shoulders at that weight).

    Never attempted a max with inclines.

    Best I ever did flat was 365lbs x 1 @ 210lbs

    Thanks. I would have guessed about 260. How did you figure that out?

    I last 1 rep maxed in March. I did 425 but I was on and at ~250lbs which I think sucks!

    BTW I'm 6'2"

    Do us older guys get any slack for age?

    No the younger guys get slack because we havent been around that much. Your 15 years ahead, so you should be 15times the strength!

    Height: 6-0 if you round off the 3/4 of an inch
    Weight: 255
    Bench: 405 x 3. I did 425 but I weighed 290 when I did that. I did this 6-8 months ago but I stick with dumbell presses since I get better workouts with that.

    However, max bench is not the best indicator of a big & ripped chest. This dude hits 90 pound dumbells incline, 110 flat and his pecs make me jealous.
