Bench Press/Floor Press 1RM

Could you please post your raw bench and floor press 1 rep maxes?

Bench - No bouncing, bar must have touched chest

Floor Press - again no bouncing (off the floor), pause at the bottom before going into the actual press

raw bench with a pause at chest -520lbs

floor press-never maxed but have done 515 for a double with legs out straight.

Nobody (myself included) wants to follow you Meat :slight_smile:

I follow you meat but I will do it whilst hanging my head.

Bench PR - 365lbs
Floor Press PR - 315 feet flat.

raw bench(without suit) is 429 and floor never maxed,did 5 with 352.

285 bench, 300 smith floor press
17 yrs old :slight_smile:

I can’t give an exact number, but I’d estimate my floor press to be at least 15% lower than my bench press.

My arms are relatively long, this thread makes me think that I should make my floor press a priority and I might see some significant improvements in my bench (I stall halfway up with heavy weight).

Probably done with wrist wraps and elbow sleeves. I doubt you’d push over 300 without all that gear. :wink:

Here they be:

255 on bench, no bounce

245x2 on floor press with legs straight. Never done a max single

They’re pretty much the same from what I figure.

405 on bench

365x3 on floor press

are you doing the floor press with legs out straight, no arch and pausing the weight with the upper arms on the floor?
