    did 335 about 6 months ago..down to 305 right now.. went to higher reps after 4 weeks light work. Always a mistake to up the reps for me just watch my strength bleed away

    Oh mine is embarassing. I did 6 reps with 200 lbs incline bench when I was 15.

    I cannot even do that now.
    I will hit 260+ lbs at the end of this year, that is my target.

    My personal best is 315, and I'm also 17. I nearly locked out 325, so that's my next goal.

    Well now I don't have any spotter, so I cannot push myself that much.
    Let's say 180 lbs. I will use a spotter and put myself into it. I am a strong dude, I think I can manage to lift 260 lbs like in, February or so.

    But that is the target now, when I lift it, I will look forward to new weights

    Ditto bro! I did 405 a couple different times and 410 once. Bench is definately my worst lift out of the 3. I would LOVE to 5 wheels someday. Just glad He-Man didn't post his numbers yet

    I did 600lbs RAW at 259lbs at a gym bench press contest. At the time my workouts went:

    135x20, 225x15, 315x10 warm-ups then 405x6-8, 495x3-5 and if I felt like going for it 585x1....so one day I got 2 with that and entered the contest and got 600lbs RAW and drug free baby. At the time I was squatting only 500lbsx2-3 reps LOL so it was funny. Bench press was my gift from above - and now my curse as I need a complete shoulder replacement surgery I use to behind the neck shoulder press 315 for reps
