Bench 300lb @ 195lb bodyweight....Approx 1.5XAnd lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

No idea. I only do pushups. I have freeweights, but no bench. I can do lots of pushups though. :)

My last chest press was Tuesday so:
300lbs for 7 reps @ BW of 167lbs ( give or take a taco).
Damn dude, I pushed 315, (once and ONLY once) at my top physical condition: weighed 210 lbs. My body fat was so low my mom thought I was being starved. My cheeks were all sunk in and hollow.

Trust me, we aren't all like Roni.

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.

5'3" 146 lb. The most I've ever benched was 150 lb, but that after I was finished doing all my bench press sets. So I was pretty blasted already.
