So I’ve been doing the Christian Thibaudeau Superhero Program. I’m on week 9.
Today I did a flat close-grip bench press with 225 lb eight times. Last week I Incline bench pressed 225 six times. (These were both in the middle of my workout). If it matters at all I’m about 5’11 203 lbs.
I haven’t done flat bench press in about two years and was thinking about attempting a max press. I used to focus my workouts around flat bench and maxed out at 225. Now that I don’t do any flat bench I am doing what I consider more difficult lifts with more weight. I think alot of it has to do with physically maturity. I just turned 24 and it seems like without working out I would still be stronger than I was when I was working out at 18.
If I were going to attempt a flat bench max what would be a reasonable weight?
