Atmospheric pressure also needs to be taken into effect. For example, were you benching inside or outside of a spaceship? If you were underwater, how deep were you?Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:

I agree with Boyd.
Your relation to sea level is a very important, and very neglected facet of weight lifting.
Try putting up that same kind of weight on the deck of the titanic.

Unless you are a 500 pound Troll 500 bench is pathetic. Maybe this is a units problem and you are benching 500 stone or kilos or grams or newtons maybe?

How much you bench doesn't mean a thing. I know a couple of people that can lift a bunch of weight, and are strong as hell for all of 3 minutes. Then they are like wrestling with my 4 yr old son. IMHO it seems the best, and the strongest people are the ones that can do multiple bodyweight movements, consecutively. IE; 100 pushups, 50 pullups, 300-500 bdywght squats, and as many sit-ups as you can do, all done one after the other (it really gets the wind going). I have a couple other friends that are into rock climbing, and those guys are freakishly strong, they can't lift alot of wghts. But they can wrestle with anyone and while not as skilled, can do very well for quite a while before being submitted. They even do well in the kbxing classes!!! So, as far as strength is concerned, what type of strength are you looking for? How long do you need to be strong for? (I.E. round length, or fight length) Do you want explosive strength (for finishing a fight) or long lasting strength? And are you a natural athlete or is this something you have had to develop? These are some of the things you will have to answer for yourself and then (working with a professional/or someone very knowledgeable) taylor a plan based around developing these individual attributes, and then combining them. I hope this helps.[A friend once told me he found Jennifer Connelly hot.
"Would she still be hot if she were melting in a car wreck, like at the end of Pollock, smelling of burnt hair and bubbling intestines?" I asked.
"Oh hell yeah."
"How? How would you even have sex with her?"
"Just let her cool and fold her over, like an omolette."
Since then we've always had this universal sign for Jennifer Connelly, it's like an "opening a book" motion, only backwards. And we are often known to softly remark "....like an omolette".]--boyd

Boogyman great post.
I know bodyweight exercises definitely improve stamina.
But whats the best way to improve sheer strength?
did someone like Randleman become so strong just doing hundreds of push ups, sit ups and or sum extreme sport?
........No I dont believe he was just born a freak of nature... he must do something right

Hey, you do 100 pushups, 100 situps, 50 chinups all in a row.
You've gotta be strong to do that. Hell of a workout right there.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!
