    I put <half bodyweight, but I've never really checked. I'm just guessing, based on how hard it was for me to start doing push ups again, and how much weight I've gained. I'd say that's a fairly accurate measure. My goal is to pass the half bodyweight mark by the end of the year (based on both strength gain, and weight loss, of course I have to find out what my actual 1RM is as well...). :)

    DEADLIFTING AND OVERHEAD PRESSING IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT. ALSO THE ATLAS STONES. DON'T DO SISSY TECHNIQUE LIFTS THAT ARE NOT IN THE WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN .

    Im a weak **** that doesn't do any strengthtraining, right now, other than the strength i get from MA training.

    I bench about 75% of my bodyweight. (lol)

    But benching isn't really the best way to measure the strength that counts in "battle". Im very good at using my own weight and positioning wich has lead me to be able to take on stronger people than my self in both grappling and standup.
    And as far as just regular strength goes i don't really like benching for that either. Isn't it just a few groups that accually work during the lift?

    The one thing that's always been a staple of my workout has been the bench, and 95% of the two years I've worked out regularly for, I've hit the bench heavily. Somebody told me the other day that I must have a strong chest cavity.

    Anyway. 1RM of 285 @ 170lbs. BW, so I'm in the 1.5X to 2X range.

    I'm getting better but I still have a sissy bench. If the bar = 45 lbs = about 20 kg then my bench is 3 sets of 8 at 60 kg = only 82% of body weight. That's about as weak I think as my squat is good.

    I haven't benched for ages, last time it was around 55-60kg, 3-5 sets of 15-20. I weigh 100kg... so yeah I suck.
