  1. Bench Press BW for Reps


    How about a little fun here? Post how many BB, flat bench press reps (free weights) you can press loaded up with your own body weight in plates. I see there are competitions out there for this and I'm curious. Have fun!


  2. I'll bite. I did this a few weeks ago training with my brother as he was getting ready for his football strength testing. I hit 225 (my weight +/- 10 at any given time) for 18. I should have been able to do more, but that burn was too intense for my wimpy self.

  3. One of these days, when BB bench rotates onto RE day, I'll do this and post it up.

    Same body weight and bench weight but I haven't tried to see how many reps I can actually do, I struggle after 10 reps at the moment.

    Yeah, it's not a common thing to train for, but at the same time it's fun to test every once in awhile. The guys you see at the NFL combine repping like mad have trained benching endurance hard for months.

  8. I can do about 12 at 245 (my weight now), and 11 at 250. At least this is with a narrower grip than my normal competition bench. It probably wouldn't be that much more with a wider grip, to be honest, maybe one more rep.

  9. Did 18 at 190 a few months ago. Down a bit since then trying to get in shape for a grappling tournament.

  10. Flat, non comp flat bench I can hit 285x14, incline I can hit 285x11.

    That's touch & go, not the tightest reps ever. Just straight up pressing fast and hard.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  11. I seem to be the resident light weight here, but I'll play too...
    I'm 165 putting up my BW for around 15 reps on a good day

  12. I'm sitting at around 225 ish. I usually get a set of 12 at that weight without too much problem. I could probly get 15 but I like to save a little strength for heavier sets after.

    Meh, I only weigh ~180-185.

  14. Light weight here...at 140 and I do 145 for 18, take a deep breath for 2 secs without racking and knockout the 20. Lately reps are the majority of my bench days since my surgery :/ can't manage much weight yet.

  15. bw = 300#, reps = 5 im a fat weak turd

  16. Depending on strictness of form, and all that jazz I am willing to bet I can get 25+ with 225lbs. I weigh 200lbs
    With most REP tests they allow an ever-slight bounce, no pause, and the weight stops short of a complete *******... so yeah 25+

    Is this all conjecture or we got some videos being posted

  21. I have never done anything around my bodyweight, but at 260 I did 315x 15 and that was a little higher rep than I like. That was also a few years ago.

  22. 225lbs rep test -- did this for ****s and giggles and to contribute to the community

    Click the image for the video.

    Note: I weigh 200lbs

  23. I just did my chest day today but if im not feeling to sore might do this tomorrow or just wait till like friday to do it and ill post a video up. If i dont run out of breath i think i should be able to do my weight around the 30 mark atleast, and i weigh 165-168ish. most ive done with 225 is 21 reps

  24. I've gotten 21 reps at 205. I'm 198.

  25. These rep ranges are impressive. For a while I was thinking "normal" was pressing BW for reps in the teens. Interesting.

    Lifting the weight for those reps at that body weight would be impressive.

    Oh I misread.
    I thought you weighed 165lbs and could bench 225lbs for 20+ reps

  34. Here's my test from a little over a month ago. I can't say if I could do more or less right now. I've been repping for the last few weeks, but at the time I did the test, I was dialed in three weeks out from my meet and feeling good.

  38. I tried this about a month ago and logged 17@170. Clearly have some work to do haha. Man I would love to rep out 225 like it was a warm up.

  39. I'd love to see vids of these lifts! I mean, some of these reps are incredible if you can actually do them.
