    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    I usually do my reps at 275lbs but on occasion, if I've had my Wheaties /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif, I'll press a few at 300lbs on a machine. I haven't tried to max out in a while. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I did chest yesterday, shoulders today and I'll do bi's & tri's tomorrow at 5:30am. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Man, I'm sore. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    i max about 225, isnt too bad for a 17 year old, its almost 130% of my body weight though, which is how i like to look at it. a guy i know, 17 also, linebacker for the school, throws up 375lbs, but then again, hes dumber than a rock and has been living at the gym since 5th grade...

    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    My best ever max was around 190. I only weigh around 155, and hardly ever work out, so thats pretty decent. Within the last couple months its been around 160-170 depending on the day. Yeah, I'm weak, but I never have a problem doing what I want to so, I'm happy.

    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    An amount so embarrassing, I can't even mention. (based on when I took a weight training class last Fall). And I don't know why.

    I know I'm weak, but based on my weight and the fact Im not made up of all fat, I shouldn't be that pathetic. But when I'm alone I can load axles and T-cases by myself. I think its just when I lift anything up over my head. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    (but I will add I've never lifted any sort of actual weights in my life up until I took the weight training class)

    No Your not weak. Lifting axels and t-cases and stuff is called work muscles, and work muscles will out do gym muscles any day of the week. Cause it's real world strength /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    Is that why my neighbor can out-bench-press me by alot, but when I ask him to help me move heavy stuff around, he almost has a hard time keeping up with me?

    If you substitute "work muscles" for "bad back", I think you've got me figured out just right.

    Work muscles be different, once in the 80's in PHX. after a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert, we were blocked in by a Buick. The side streets were parked bumper to bumper. We picked it up and put it in this guy's front yard, his neighbor came out and watched, giggling his ASS OFF!! I get paid to exercize at work.

    Re: bench press-what\'s your max???

    I did 275 for 3 reps in December. I guess my max was around 300 but I never tried. I considered getting on the juice and trying for 400 by summer, but I figured that wouldn't be a good idea. But now I'm down to 250 because I'm focusing more on my cardio. Trying to prepare for the Marines... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    DONT get on the juice! Read "Sex, Lies, and Headlocks." by Shaun Assael. Most big guys and rasslers come to a BAD END. NOT Good! Rather die drinking....so much more fun. Andre the Giant can't be wrong, used to drink 100 in one sitting.
