    I was benching 4 plates a side for 5 sets of 8 on a hammer strength machine last night but that is a lot easier then a straight bar. I just need to invite a buddy along to video tape.

    I have a feeling I won't be able to do 3 plates a side but maybe 2 and a 35.

    89coupe, what was the highest weight you benched not on a machine?

    I've never tried, as I work out alone.

    I do 225 for 5 sets of 5 all by myself with relative ease. So I'm curious to try.

    Currently I do 3plates a side (315lbs) 3x10 . And maxout 1 clean rep at 4plates a side. (405lbs) . Flat bench free bar , no machine. I know about 8 guys at my guy who can do 3plates a side regularly.

    Good luck 89coupe, I'm really curious to see now..

    I never seen anyone in my life that only trained with the machine (and can bench over 400 on the machine). So I'm intrigued to see what the difference in weight will be when you bench freely.

    This kinda of shit comes up a lot, why dont you guys just make the "Beyond Gym Dick Measure thread"(or something similar haha), and only post once, update/edit your posts with your 1RM's with video proof? Make it a sticky at the top of the weightlifting forum? Or something along those lines.. Not progress threads like everyone has, just a legit, up to date 1RM thread. No more bullshit haha..

    I always train with free weights, I only use a machine when I want to push my self to the max, as I train by myself.

    By the way, 4 plates a side on a hammer strength machine is only 360lbs.
    Which really only feels like 225lbs. Lol

    For those that don't know what a hammer strength looks like.

    Blah, stop making excuses for being weak. This year at the Festival of Strength a 65kg lifter went 212.5///140///185.0! Said lifter is a small Asian guy who looks like he has never been to the gym! But he benches over two times his own body weight RAW! That is some real strength! Remember, strength comes in all sizes. A 320I putting out 500whp is way more impressive than a 335 laying down 400whp. Most 'big guys' at the gym are proportionally weak as hell. Oh you weigh 250lbs and cant squat 500lbs or deadlift 600lbs?

    Actually? Please post a video I would like to see this. If you are not lying and don't weigh 300lbs that is some serious strength. What gym are you training out of?
    Not to be an ass but within the entire Alberta powerlifting community I can count on one hand the number of guys that can bang out 315lbs for 10 reps clean. That includes guys that are known to use steroids and not.

    You flatter me! However, as far as strength athletes go I am as average as they come.

    FYI, short guys will always out bench tall guys, 9/10 times.

    Simple leverage

    simple physics yo:

    W = F x D

    but tall dudes shouldn't let that stop them, still work to outlift manlets.

    Ok I will be straight up and a lot of people know me and have seen me. I have been training for 7 years now started at 139 pounds. I currently weigh 223pound and am about 8% bf. and 5'9

    I don't have a video as I feel awkward at the gym to ask someone to video me but I will if you still don't believe me after I also tel you that out of the 7 years training I won't hide the fact that I have cycled on and off for the last 3 years of that.
    Also I work out at golds gym in airdrie. Everyone knows me very well and I can easily do 3plates a side 3x10 with only 1min break between sets 2min max.

    Damn, I am jelly. One of these days I will get my act together and diet properly. Walking around under 10% BF would be nice. I wish I didn't like being such a fat mess and eating crap food. How strict are you with your diet?

    P.S I believe you.

    If it weren't for ice hockey/snowboarding/swimming, I would probably be a lot more serious with weight lifting. OK, sounds like an excuse but it's tough when you are swimming 2x and skating 3x a week. Now the snow is falling gotta hit the mountains too.

    When I cut , I'm very strict and I count every calorie I eat. Plus I go on a keto diet when I cut so very high protein and fats. Under 100grams of carbs a day after 3days of zero carbs.

    But when I bulk I eat so bad it's crazy. Pizza ,chips, fast food and just everything you could think of. My last dirty weight was 238 and I cut down to the 220ish if been at recently. But now that its winter again I'm starting to dirty bulk again. It's the only way to keep sanity . I could never do a clean bulk and eat good all year long.

    Whaaat? When you are bulking what do you estimate your BF at? 10-12% If so that isn't a bulk!

    I woudln't worry about that at all Sam. I always prefer being athletic and in great shape versus lifting a shit ton.

    My late friend, RIP, could press 6 x 545, among some other impressive lifting capabilities. But ask him to play basket ball or hockey (albeit a nasty injury ended that years ago) and he lost all ability, same with golf. Couldn't run for very long on a treadmill either.
