    that's pretty good. I weigh 188lbs and 300lbs is my 1 rep max. I am assuming you are taking about flat barbell bench.

      was unaware weight mattered in this sport.

      but for the record, i havent flat benched regular grip in 4 years.

            I've tried at least 6 seperate times to bench 305lbs (smallest we have is 2.5lb plates) and I can't. If I were to get past my 300lbs I'd have to start training solely for bench.


            Last time I tried was about 3 weeks ago. I hit 255lbs on incline last night though.

              what sort of training program were you on to hit that? my 1RM was 295 at a BW of about 180. never been able to bench more than that as chest is a weak point for me

                I don't incorporate flat bench as part of my regular training. I use it more of a strength test for myself occassionally. I get better pec contractions from other exercisese.

                300lbs for 10 reps @ 180lbs is pretty good. What's your max 1-rep ?

                  I posted this in another thread but i guess it applies here.
                  about 20 years ago as i shifted from gym to home training, i wanted badly to increase my bp. nothing, and i mean nothing worked. one day, i read one of those never ending articles in the old iron man about power rack training written by Anthony Ditillo. i thought "what the hell". this is what i did. 4 sets of bp in the power rack from from 6" off my chest to lock out. i pyramided up. something like 8, 6, 4, 2. weight increased each set. i then did 2 sets of as many reps as i could with a given weight in the regular bp. for these sets however i used a cambered bp bar. i rested 5 minutes between sets. i did this only once per week. the results? in about 8 months, i went from a 305 lb bp to a 340 lb with a narrow miss at 350lbs. nothing short of a miracle for me. just thought I'd share.
                  I weighed about 240lbs at the time so it was really not a big deal. You guys are much stronger.

                    i'm only 5'4 and have huge shoulders..that's my advantage i guess..we're all different..lots of smaller guys out squat and deadlift me

                    i keep things simple..no warmup besides 135 x 10, then 225 x 12-15...then 290 x 8-10

                      i've been doing more delt/tricep work.

                      mainly front military presses and close grip bench.


                      my front military I can do 185lbs for reps.


                      for some reason my close grip is weak. I can only do about 150lbs for reps.


                      i've been using Westside Barbell techniques which have been helping.

                        my warm up I do:

                        135: 3x
                        185: 2x
                        225: 1x
                        275: 1x
                        300: 1x


                        I haven't done rack lockouts in awhile, but I agree Bob those helped me tremendously. I did mine about 4" from my chest.

                          Bob-


                          I'm not sure what you are talking about.


                          so 8,6,4,2 of progressively heavier weights 6" pins to lockout ?

                          then a cambered bar for how much weight ? like an ez-bar?

                            Yeah from aprox 6" off my chest to lock out. As reps decreased, weight increased. My cambered bar is pretty deep. maybe 5 inches. I suppose you could get a similar stretch using dbs. On the cambered sets I'd very the weight from week to week. Maybe 250lbs one week and 200lbs the next. On the cambered sets I REALLY went for it. Hope this helps.
