I only do sets of 225x10 when I workout so probably about 20.

Does lifting my ass of the couch count?

If it does, I can put up 310 at least 18 times a day.

For a few years after high school, I could do 12 or 13. I was a pretty good football player too.

That was a while ago though, and I havent been to the gym in a while. I'm sure I'm still good for a couple reps though.

Used to bench 225lbs about 12-15 times. Then I got greedy, tried to bench 350lbs, my right shoulder popped out of my socket and the bar nearly killed me. Have not benched sense. Every time I think about benching, I look at my bar and it have a nice dry bloody spot on it. Good reminder not to be greedy.

Me and my 38" arms agree.


Oh Pleeeaaaasssseee! :) The more size you have, the more room for muscle. That's why all the heavyweight lifters are big fuggers, as Zod would say.

In my day, which was a while ago, I weighed 195 and maxed BP at 360 ... with no supplements. I warmed up with 15 quick ones at 225. I did 23 reps once b/c a cougar was spotting me. I could've pushed 4 - 5 more but didn't want her to see me strain. Like I said ... that was a while ago!:D

I played with a guy in college that snapped his pec on max day. Big guy, played d-line for us and was getting some NFL looks. He had 500 lbs on the bar. Took it off the rack and about half way down I heard this loud pop and that 500 lbs bounced 3 times on his chest before the spotters knew what happened. Scary stuff.

Never tried it, did try a 20 rep squat one time - those are brutal.

Nope... longer arms = harder to bench because you have to move the same amount of weight farther, it's simple physics.

The guys even mentioned it during the combine coverage, they have a chart that compensates for arm length when comparing the bench press reps.
