I said, from what i have noticed, whatever you can do for a 1 rep max in the incline, you should be able, and i said approx, 100lbs more in the bench press. [/quote]
So guys, that means you noobs out there who can only bench 1plate can’t even incline bench the bar.
100 pounds is completely arbitrary. Use your brain and at least come up with an approximate percentage.[/quote]
I was talking more about guys that have been lifting for awhile. I was just stating something that I noticed personally with myself. [/quote]
Not to defend the Vampire, but the guy did say when he was going heavy, doing singles and doubles. Assuming, he is real, lets just for kicks say he benched 500 flat, then it would actually be reasonable to only bench 400 or so incline. roughly 80%, honestly you guys should just read the posts a little less critically, his post is no more useless than those saying, ‘dont worry about it’ or ‘who cares’ it wouldnt hurt to do a little deduction on your own[/quote]
I agree with what you’re saying - I was partially being a dick because it’s RV. That said though, I have no idea how much he benches. He may bench 500, or he may bench 200 (does he even lift?). If he mentioned that it would make sense, we could get a rough percentage from it. But without that info, ‘100 pounds’ is arbitrary and useless.
this is true, but then again %'s are just as individual. prime example, 1RM calculators can be really accurate or way the fuck off depending on who you are, but ppl still use them as a ‘guideline’ in some cases. For posters, theres no way to know if they are who they are, so i generally go with what they want to be percieved as, RV wants to be percieved as big, strong, motherfucka, based on his pics benching less than 400-500 would just be stupid, so i judge his posts based on that, not who i think he is. Also glad this is a discussion not just a fucking fist fight haha, some of this shit i think applies to just reading posts in gneneral, i have noticed posters i know less about can be harder to reply to without pissing off.
