Off cycle - I do 3 sets of 8 @ 225.
On cycle - I do 3 sets of 6 @ 275.

Not a big fan of bench though. If I'm trying to tear and build chest muscle I much prefer to do any variation of a dumbell fly. You can feel your chest getting torn apart on the very first rep with flys. I love it.

Most I ever maxed in college on bench was 450 lbs. not sure what that would translate into with 225 reps. I used to do sets of 10 with 225 - 275 lbs.

Squat max was 565
Incline bench max was 325
Power clean max was 315


Today, my max would be about 8 lbs on all those lifts.

At a 450lb max, you were probably at least at 25x 225lbs.

I'm exactly backwards... I'm way stronger now than when I was younger... I didn't really start lifting until I was like 24 or so... and didn't really get into it until a few years after that. I work harder now at 38 than I ever did when I was younger. If I hadn't torn my rotator cuff last year, I think I would be up to at least a 350 max by now...
