    Default Classic question - What do you bench?

    I figured there's enough guys on here that can answer that question HONESTLY!!!!
    I'm at 305 right now for a max single and 225 for 16.
    That's my best so far this year.

    Doing 1 rep max is how you get injured...

    I'm 160 and I can do two plates (2 45's on each side - 225lb) but I don't think it translates into real strength. I think people should be wary of using the amount of weight as a benchmark. I used to go into the gym and shoot for high weights on the common exercises like bench press, curls, etc. But if you don't exercise all your muscles evenly, you're not getting any benefit from working out. You're only strong for that one motion, and it can cause problems with your stabilizer muscles and other joints... My $0.02

    i agree with you man. i cant see how some of these guys bench more than 200lbs. givin it all depends on other factors (ie, mood, food, spotter, how many sets and reps)

    my thoughts exactly.
    I'm for real but I weigh 225lbs.

    I thought my bench way pretty good but some of these guys....are completely full of $hit.
