It’s pretty hard to find on this site and in general.
I have pretty much given up the bench press in my head as the main upper body exercise. It’s a sub par exercise for me and it’s out of my mind for good. My main exercise if the flat DB bench press.
I am wondering what would be some good entry ‘‘levels’’ of strength on the DB flat bench press to be considered advanced? If that makes any sense.
I know that for the barbell bench press typical numbers, based on everything I have seen let’s say you can expect 405x1 for a typical entry level juicer/steroid monkey idiot, 495x1 for a fat or heavy one who trains a bit better and 600 for a more serious one with good strength genetics. For a natural lifter good numbers would be 405x1 for an ‘‘entry level’’ advanced lifter, 455x1 for a fat one and 495x1 for one with very good strength genetics. That’s what I think.
I have made some research on this forum, the best I found was 145 or 150 for 8-10 for a ‘‘normal’’ guy with some proficiency on the DB bench press. Well I am pretty much doing that, really I am just wondering if any natural guy with a normal build is doing the 160x10 so I can look upon them.
I would be interested to know what everyone thinks about that general topic.
