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

I hit 18 weighing in at 180
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.

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

bw = 300#, reps = 5 im a fat weak turd
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 lockout... so yeah 25+
Is this all conjecture or we got some videos being posted
