Your combine - bench press

Recommended Posts



Saw a post on PFT about a dude at the combine that did 44 reps yesterday...

Also saw a note last week about a guy that tore his pec at the combine doing it... that really sucks. :(

Thought about this old thread reading those bench press notes...

Last July I was maxing 305 and did 225 14 times with no spotter, at the time I was 6'0" and 215... since my rotator cuff tear and surgery I can't lift more than 5 lbs. until April 15... :(

I'm a year out from this post ^ and 14 months out from my surgery and I have full ROM in my arm and have been back in the gym since last June. I'm back up to where I can get 275 up a couple of times and just yesterday my third set of bench I did 225 10X with no spotter. Very happy that I had my shoulder fixed. :)

I can also do 38 pull ups with out stoping.

That is the measure of a man. I've seen guys in the gym bench 300+ and can't do one pullup. I can do about 12-15 but I'm talking real pullup. Overhand, all the way up and all the way down.

I'm working on trying to do this.

back in high school, i bet i could have hung with most of you guys. and i was a twig (6'0, 160 lbs) i was thisclose to doubling my body weight on the bench. I got 305 on two different occasions.

last time i tried benching 225, i got one rep. that was 2009, so i'll probably get 0 now.

IDK how many total pull ups I could do... every other back day, I do 3 or 4 sets of the pull downs then go do 3 sets of 6-8 pull ups with strict form, no cheating. I could probably get 12-14 or so pull ups if I just warmed up and did it. Not too bad at 225 lbs, but could be better...

Those "muscle ups" are pretty impressive.
