    My bench is pathetic at the moment.. 3 sets of 10 at 35Kg (I weigh 85kg)

    I've never tried to find out what my maximum single press is.

    I'm 235 and until my recent injury which is keeping me out for 6 -8 weeks was maxing 275 and finally on my way (I thought) to doing a 300 pound max...don't ask me why I'm obsessed with maxxing 300 pounds just once in my life...I know repping 225 10 times a pop is better for me but I just want to lift 300 pounds once...just ONCE godammit.

    Last time I did any serious lifting I remember hitting a plateau around 180lbs, and I weighed about 165lbs at the time... that was a couple years ago, at my last physical (a month ago) I weighed in at almost 190 but look timmer than I was during weight lifting, so I don't know where I would resume lifting at. As an estimate I'll say .5-1.0

    Gee, my man boobs just won't lift very much, I mean ****, Ronin69, you're about 4'11" and 115 Lbs and you're lifting 300!?!?

    p.s. I was doing 145 to burn (10 to 15 reps three times) then this idiot phony jerk gay socalled BLACK BELT did a lock wrong, forced it with power and refucked up my left rotator and I've had to drop about 50 Lbs off or it cracks, pops, and hurts.

    Interesting results. All the guys who bench 400, have 10 inch dicks and date supermodels must hang out exclusively on MMA.tv, it seems :D

    After some shoulder troubles last year I'm working my way back up... currently doing 6 reps at 160 pounds, at a bodyweight of 185. Not too great, but it looks I'm in good company.

    Way back in my prime, I could squeeze out strict doubles with 300 at a bodyweight of 210. I didn't have a spotter, so I didn't go for a one rep max, only multiples. I was shooting for triples with 300, but always had to rack the bar after the second rep because I felt I wouldn't be able to complete the third. I always considered the olympic bar (without collars) to be 45, so that one 45 plate on each end would be 135, 2 would be 225, etc.
