very few people can bench three plates...if you can do that, then you are doing quite well.....most people can't do more than two plates plus...
The "five plates" benchpressing in FLEX mag has totally fcuked up everyone idea of a good bench.
If someone can benchpress 4 plates while weighing under 200 lbs, then that would make you very competitive in almost any benchpress competition.
The best natural benchpresser in the world @198 lbs presses cerca 525 lbs raw.
His name is Dennis Cieri, and he's an absolute freak. One of the best raw benchpressers regardless weightclass IMO.
So if your benchpress is only 125-150 lbs behind his, then you are of course elite.
