the chart’s a little optimistic
I usually max out at like 5-10 pounds less than the projected max. Still pretty darn accurate though.

Comon, who the christ can bench press 750 lbs? never mind pumping that shit for 10 reps, oh yeah, thats why they invented steroids. the chart is accurate though lol

Does this work for squats too? how about powerclean?

bench press chart
Ryan – this is for bench press. I believe the squat numbers stagger even higher since your legs are so much more powerful.

Chuck August 27, 2008 at 4:53 pm

I wonder
I did 135 lbs. 19 times and i am wondering what my max is. if anyone can help me find out what my max bench press is that would be great. thanks

Reply

Rado September 1, 2008 at 1:31 pm

max bench press
Doing 135 x 19 isn’t close enough. You’ll have to increase the weight to give us a more accurate look at how much you can bench press. Go ahead and lift 185lbs and see how many times you can bench press that weight load.

This chart is pretty good. i got 295 5 x and with a max of 335 like the chart says.

Nice
I benched 310 ten reps. The most I’ve ever lifted is 400 even. Pretty close.

Reply

Bill August 25, 2009 at 6:03 am

Like the chart.
Haven’t maxed in years. Did 365X4 for my last set of flat bench last night. I weigh 170 lbs and am 42 years old. 5 years ago I got 395X1. I will let you know if I get the projected 409X1.
For the negative comments, why is someone complaining about how high the chart goes? They should just concentrate on what they can do. If someone thinks this chart sucks it sounds like they are just jealous.

whats the secret to increasing your max

Reply

mike ellis July 19, 2010 at 6:35 pm

it works.
to increase ur max. is to mix your work Routine at the gym.
exzample do one month of bench press. and the outher month
tryseps. if u do that you will incress ur bench perss. to do soo.
add more until you can only do 1 rep. and keep on pushing
your muscles. to the limit. thats how to incress your bench press.

YOU READ THE CHART WRONG
THE COLUMN TO THE FAR LEFT IS THE LBS THAT YOU CAN LIFT. THE ROW AT THE VERY TOP REPRESENTS REPS. UNDER THAT TOP ROW ARE THE LBS. THAT YOU CAN LIFT THAT AMOUNT OF TIMES REFLECTIVE TO THE TOP ROW. —–BOO YOW.

Did 10 reps of 210 today for my final set. This seems fairly accurate, although I haven’t tried a one-rep max in a couple yrs. no supplements aka pussy-drugs either
