How much can you bench?

  1. 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)


  2. Not enough.

    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:

    i gotcha, i was gonna ask if you compete, but i guess that answers my question haha

  22. 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.

  23. After my partial RC tear, I'm benching 70 pounds.

    Yeah, buddieieieieie, light weight!!!!!!

    Sigh.

  24. weight 148

    2X245

  25. 345x1 @230lbs

    Its really pathetic.


    6' 2"

    There I edited height in mine

  26. at 220lbs around 350 but have gone over 400 10 YEARS AGO

    yeah....you make me feel soooo much better!




    ass

  28. havent maxed in a while....but I think my most impressive was 365 @ about 195

    but now at 220+ i rep 315 x7-10 on a good day and have inclined with 130s for reps

    i guess my max is about 395-405 but I dont really see a point in trying to hit that anytime soon...i wanna be able to rep that sh1t

  29. If this thread continues I say everyone should post their height to make us taller guys feel better. Haha!

  30. 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

  32. 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?

  34. bb.com 1 rep max calculator

  35. 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?

  36. Height: 6'6

    Bench: Sucky

    Deadlift: Good

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

  38. I got 315 almost twice@178

  39. 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.
