I doubt you coudl hit 315 for 5 clean reps at 170.......maybe if you are bouncing the weight or not going all the way down.

I am a Hyper responder to the juice maybe 4  grams per weak and opiates, like Levrone i get up in weight rather than bulking and comiing down in weight.270 when juiced with good conditioning.
225 natural.I have resigned myself to lifting light while natural.

Have to agree with (nothing), pointless. And Rocket is also correct.  The fingers seem to be more creative on the number pad's after each post here.

Onlyme did that 225 bench at age 12.

Good Luck.

I'd hate to know what my max is now, but when I was workin out, my maxs were bench 265lbs. and a military press of 220.  I weighed 204 at the time, now I've got married and packed the weight on bad, 36lbs. in 2 years.  Need a good motivator to put me back in gym and on the right track.  Genetically I can never look built like alot of other people, but you feel good and your excersing and that's all that matters!

Picture was taken during a typical workout back in my day.  Here I probably banged out 4-6 reps.

Best single rep (as last set of a 12-set bench workout) was 595lbs at a BW of 265, around age 28.

Now 40, BW 225lbs.  I only press on the Smith and never go above 405 (I want my shoulders to last for the long haul).  Usually can pump out 6-8reps.

Just an update. This week, I got out 6 clean reps with 225lbs, and 2 reps out with 275lbs on the bench. I also gained 5lbs. I've switched to some very low priced supplements the past 2 weeks, and since then, every one of my lifts has gone up in weight! I don't understand it. I've wasted so much money on overpriced crap, and now I'm on supps. that cost about 1/3 of what i used to pay, and I've never made progress like this in 3 years of training! Last week I incline pressed 80lbs db's for 10 reps, and thought I probably could've done more, but it was my 4th set already. This week I got the 90lbers up for 8 reps. I thought it would've taken me till the summer to get to the 100lbs db's, but it's only about 2 weeks away!! I'm so pumped!!!

245 x 4 or 5, and i've only been benching for 4 months.  Ha, ha, i wish.

I benched all through high school and got a sick bench.  Then i gave it up for more wimpy exercises, don't ask why, it was a dark time in my life  :-\.

So now, i've relied on some muscle memory and it's really sprung back up there.  I have the distinct feeling that it's not going anywhere for a while, however, as i'm not very genetically strong and i just hurt my shoulder or biceps tendon or something that is tweaking during the bench.


Title: Re: How much can you bench?
Post by: Carmello on November 22, 2005, 08:08:06 PM
Goin up to 245lbs in 2 weeks! Next week If i get 8 reps or more out on 225lbs I will go up to 245lbs and see how many I get. Last week I was taking creatine strong and got 6 reps. This week, I was off the creatine, and did it again, 6 reps. I figure since I'm staring it up again this week, by next week I should bust out 8 reps or more out on 225lbs. YEAH!

Didn't taper down. You know you have to taper off the gear, don't you? You need to allow your body to slowly get back to normal, whereas I just stopped and because I had no test in me at all for a while, I lost my gains. That's what crashed means.

I used HCG, but apparently u have to take a little at a time and every couple of days. I just banged the whole lot in once a week.

Nolva, clomid and all that shit is VERY hard to come by where I live. So, didn't forget, just couldn't get! Plus I did the HCG wrong. Bummer. At least I know better now.
