now: 275@162


#3

Cool.


#4

270 @ 235

damn long weak arms!

damn them to hell...


#5

This "vs bodyweight" stuff is only impressive if you're a lightweight and you're stronger than most big dudes.


#6

All lifts are considered internet shit talking unless you post a video.


#7

175 at 192BW.... Believe me?


#8

no video but i used to only train the bench and never did legs! My goal was to achieve a 2 times body weight bench raw and after i got that i kind of lost interest in the bench. Now bench days are my easy days.


#9

I wouldn't bench if it weren't for the full power meets.

220.2 @ 132


#10

No, you're lying, no one is that pathetic, not even the 'functional strength' doofs.


#11

Wow. This is like the limbo.

How low can you go?


#12

325 at 200lbs now
405 at 220 lbs years ago
Both are good touch and go no bs lifts.


#13

Currently 200 @ 152... Pretty lame if you ask me.

Tomorrow morning I'll get it up to 205 :smiley:


#14

285 lbs. @ 208 lbs. BW

Maybe I can hit 290 in two weeks.


#15

535 with a pause at 272 bodyweight.

hopefully hitting closer to 550 at 242 for raw bench comp in April.

Meat


#16

325 FOR 6 (never tried a 1rep max) at 226lbs


#17

308 @ 198

And to avoid any "internet shit talking" labels lol!


#18

275lbs at 200lbs


#19

225-175bw

everytime I get to 50 lbs more than my body weight I break something, first was my left wrist, now I messed up my ac joint in my left shoulder.

#20

I can bench about my own bodyweight

there's a wrestler at my school who can bench 225 at like....130lbs, no one at my school can bench over 315.
