i can do 80kg. i'm 5'11 and weigh just under 170 lbs. about 76kg.

for those saying benching doesnt help anything, that isnt true. in football, it might not be as important as shoulders, but it serves its purpose. it adds to your total strength, and gives you size. PLUS, the ladies love a nice chest :wink:
if you're working your upper body, it is not good to skip a certain area.
if a quiz is quizzical, then what's a test?

i am 5' 10" i weigh 135 and i can get 155 i am 14 but i prefer to go with 135 for around 10 reps because that makes you more cut and it is more realistic

I think if you can bench your body weight or more you can call yourself tough haha

Im actually heavy into strength training and bodybuilding. The best way to up you bench is through goals, if for a few weeks ur bench plateaus and doesnt go up ad a 2.5 lbs weight on each side, u will barely feel the difference but if will shock ur body enough to break through that plateaus. Also try using dumbbells for chest, its safer and to me much more efficient, plus you fly up in weight, is the last 4 months my dumbbell bench soared like mad :shock:

I prefer push-ups. I don't know, but I've just got a feeling about bench-press making your body slower.... especially if you are competing by lifting much as you can at once which means you're practicing slow twitch muscles only.
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.

First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.

What the mind of man can concieve and believe, it can achieve.

I get that same feeling, but actually if the bench press is done properly (and sensibly) it won't make you slower and increase your strength

I can do 52 Perfect Push-Ups... I haven't been in a weight room in a few months. The Perfect Push-Up in my opinion virtually eliminates any need for upper body weight training.
God damn brewery!!!
