any time you bench damn near double your bodyweight that's sick....and to have more respect for that kinda weight..try getting under it. The weight doesn't care what it lands on..your face or the floor either way it's going to crush  your ass if you don't respect it. I love how people even think mid 300's to 400's isnt' a big bench..yet they can't even unrack it.

It's a hell of a bench, but wtf do you mean "respect" it?

From your prospective I can understand how 300+ maybe a lot ,but from someone's prospective that can bench 4 plates for 12 reps that kind of weight will not be impressive.

The heaviest I have ever gone is 315 for 2 and I can't feel it in my chest just shoulder friction.  I am 205 and 225 to 275 hits the chest perfectly.

455 would drive me through both the bench and the floor.

i just thought about benching 455 and blew both my shoulders out. apparently i need to take some time off from GB and come back when my numbers are better.  Undecided

Are you claiming to bench 4 plates per side for 12 reps?

i know a grand total of ZERO, the most reps i've ever seen anyone get with 405 in person was 10 by a Samoan dude who trained at my old gym, probably could have done 12-15 but always stopped at 10 then did 455 for a few and then 5 plates for 3-4.

Samoans are amazing, ive never met a weak one. The strongest in my gym was a Samoan, he never did flat but inclined 365 for 8.

ive' got a client right now who benches it for 5 reps and smokes 455. So I have an idea myself. The only guys I know that can bench like that are the same guys you know and the rest of us know! Kennelly, Wilkerson Wolfe, etc. all top names in the sport. There is no way you could ever bench like that and NOT be known or talked about somewhere.

Ok, calm down there Henry Rollins. Go back to sipping your Met-RX shake while thumbing through the latest issue of FLEX, getting ready to do battle with the cold iron.

Haha did I ruffle your feathers "Biig Guy"?

Well considering Squad is nearly 275lbs body wt. and has a MAX of 365 on the flat bench it is no surprise The Biig Guy considers 405 to be an EXTREME amount of weight.

Who here thinks that a 5'7" guy who weighs 240 in the off season and is on Enough gear to open up a pharmacy , would consider him w/ a 455 MAX BENCH as EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE?

DO you Magoo? DO you Panda?

I wouldn't say EXTREMELY impressive, but it is impressive and not as common as you make it sound.

Wouldn't say extremely impressive, but impressive.

You kind of make it out to be a small feat, but it isn't.

I am only benching right now on decline and incline. I am staying away from flat for the next three months. If you want I'll do 405 for 12-14 on the decline, granted decline is a lot easier then flat. I would need another 7-10 days to prove this to you chaos.
