Can any one help me with the strength/weight ratios for bench press?? [/quote]

Most lifters should be able reach 1.5 x BW
Good Benchers reach 2.0 x BW
Great Benchers reach 2.5 x BW
Beast-like Benchers reach 3.0 x BW

Honest question: how many raw benchers have ever benched 3x their body weight?

OP, go back to school and re-learn the English language. I know, on the internet you can shorten words and such, but seriously… c’mon.

As for being a champion bencher, here’s a link to the results of the IPF 2012 Raw World Cup

Im looking to use the bench test as a way of increasing power to weight ratio and are paying more attention to the strength in relation to the wt rather than just 1rm at any boduweight ie a cycle of oxymetholone dianabola nd 1000mg of tes enth a week and bech 600ibs! ha[/quote]

Angus, you’re clearly not familiar with the Gonads method of training. He’s a former pro athlete with super-duper impressive quads who’s kind enough to remind us all that the single-leg press is the number one most effective leg-building exercise ever.

It’s the internet. I don’t get offended when people say mean words to me, and people shouldn’t get offended when I say mean words to them.

Being wrong, on the other hand…

I’m not being serious. It was just a playful jab at those that flamed me for saying something similar in another thread.

Asking a guy for pictures to back up claims on a bodybuilding website = Gay.

Telling a guy how well-defined your cock is = Not gay.

Gifted gonads logic. Awesome.
