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.Training log:

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.
Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

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.

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

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.

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

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