Floor Press Equal to Bench Press

What does it mean when my floor press max is equal to my bench press max??

Should one max be higher than the other? Does it imply I have a weakness??

Just curious.

I feel like that’s an indication of suboptimal bench press technique.

Your probably right.

Lack of leg drive?

I agree. at some point, my floor press was HIGHER than my actual bench press. Still, I can’t bench for shit.

it really just depends on your leverages, how far you go down on the floor press, or if you pause. There are a bunch of variables. i wouldn’t worry about it. I’d say try to make the floor press as hard as possible. so like pause at the bottom and go until you elbows touch. If you already do that then it’s probably leverage related.
