Bench Press (How Much)

How much can you bench press? I lifted 325 at the end of my workout yesterday. Bench is finally going up after taking off for 3 months

At the end of my bench workout I can get 475, I want to try a bench shirt and go for 500. I need to really change up my workout because my max has only gone up 20 lbs in the last year. Anyone have any suggestions for a good chest and tricep workout.

I'm just over 360 right now. It's about to drop though, once I get serious about leaning for this summer.

I dont reallyhave a high bench, because I normally do dumb bells, due to not having a work out partner.

I normally do 85-90-95 dumb bells. Not to bad for a little weak ass like me

I try to do 75-80-85 incline as well.

pretty good Karen! not sure what my max is, haven't ever tried to do a whole lot......usually under 100 so that I can do more reps. I guess i should see how much I can really do. I hate chest the most of all, so I just don't try as hard with it and am not that great at it.

Haven't been able to do actual bench in a while, just been using dumbbells. I was doing around 245 lbs. a while ago, I weigh about 170.

Thanks Michelle. Im not quite fond of it either. Probably cuz thats not where I should be concentrating my attention at these days. hehe.

Thats a really good idea, you should try to max. It will give you a good idea of weight to be working out with and you'll probably surprise yourself.
