    Bench/Squat max


    i am just interested in seeing what some of your numbers are. At a weight of 180lbs. I put up 360 on the bench, and 405 on the squat. Without any use of supp. Including no use of any testosterone boosters. I know that are egos could get inflamed with this thread, but, lets be honest so we can all get a good figure on what is possible at what weight. I don't know about you all, but it motivates me to see what others can do. On a side note, my roomate just pressed 315 for 6 on his 5th set of bench. He has been growing like a weed and I am jealous (he is 250).

    Hey, how is it going? 100% natural here, haven't even tried homebrews yet. Probably will soon though, man you guys are big! I weigh 255, can bench around 380 and squat about the same. Oh and 6' 4'' is the height.
    Get a big pump and push that weight

    I do less than most of you. People tell me I am built but I am not so impressed. I like to get more strength, more so FUNCTIONAL strength. I also want to be faster, jump higher, and be better cardiovascular wise. Is that all possible? I guess I will need to go thru cycles. 6 weeks to put on some size, 6 weeks to get lean and get the VO2 up. Toward the spring do some sprinting, full-contact fighting, etc.

    BTW, I play football, hockey, softball, volleyball, tennis, jet ski, martial arts, ultimate frisbee, soccer. I also want to take up mountain biking, some running, and do more hiking etc. My endurance is horrible. My goal is to be stronger, bigger, faster, quicker, tougher, smarter, sexier etc.

    I am envious of you guys on your bench, mine is 210 but it is going up steadily.  My squat is 400 and continuing to go up but it is becoming harder and harder to increase.  The hard yrs of misspent youth are catching up on this old man of 47.  I won't die without a fight.  My goal is to die young at an old age, yes I did steal that line.  Later.

    So you bench 2.5 times your bodyweight?  You must be huge.  Any pics?

    nah no pics right now definitely not huge..shocks the hell out of people i have a good sized chest arms r skinny as hell and i have chicken legs..lol..all through high school i had a rep for being strong..i like to screw with people though like when i grabbed 4 cases of canned soda with one armed from my stockeir cousin(same height as me,our family owns a hoagie shop and runs a cafeteria in a major corp) and played it off even though he knew i was messing with him but his face was hilarious have a "u prick look to it"..whole families that way..my grandfather boxed and played semi-pro baseball for the cards back before ww2..they called him the bull actually because he supposedly tackled a bull when it broke free from a slaughter house(actually his brother played with the brooklyn dodgers..carl furillo)
    no pic as of right now as i am kind of ashamed of my conditioning hoping to hit my peak again around march for a bench meet but right now i just wanna get back into a routine..my current max is only at 315 bench and squat i have zero idea..as i have been taking it easy because of a torn metiscus(sp?) in my right knee that i didnt know i had from the same car accident..

    My recent bench max was 330. Not too bad for weighing 185. My squats are at 375, which is pathetic. But I badly tore my right hip flexor and dislocated my hip years ago from playing baseball, and I've only been squating for 3 months Oh well, they are shooting throught the roof! My goal after bulking is 200lbs. body weight, atleast 450 squat, and 360 on bench. Can someone hand me a homebrew??

    my weakest lift by far is the bench. i never max but 190 for 3 reps clean. (and this at 5'9 and 164) as far as squats, i dont count a rep unless its atleast at parallel (i go an inch or two pass) so at this range its 275 for 2 reps. (that my friends is a big gap between the squats and bench. im not sure what the average ratio between the big three (squats/bench/deads) but my deads the best at 315

    OK, this is getting to be weird ****. What's your name/age/ ect. I also lift at Klahanie Fitness, and acutally should start personal training over there pretty soon. I've been lifting there for years, so I'm sure I know who you are. Small world, isn't it. Forgot to mention, I graduated from Skyline in '99.

    Wow, this thread is old... but the posts in here tell me that I need to step my game up!

    6'2"
    200 lbs

    Bench: haven't maxed out in forever, but during my 4th/final set during a workout I will usually put up 225 about 4 times... last time I maxed I think it was like 245 but that was years ago... I hope I've gotten stronger!

    Squat: Honestly, I've been doing squats for only a year now... and I've never maxed out. I'll usually work up to 225 and do that a few times during my last set, and then move on to another exercise.

    I'm going to start making a better effort to move up the weight, but only doing 45-60 minute workouts 3 times a week after work makes it hard to make time for maxing out.

    Gonna try to move up though!

    I've always felt strong for my size.

    5'9"
    172lbs
    BP: 305
    Squat: 425

    The above figures are kind of guestimates as I usually only go to max sets of three. In the past week I put of 280x3 on Bench (1" off chest) and 405x3 on squat (parallel).
