    so, just for the poll ill say under 700 lbs. somewhere between 699 lbs and just the bar :D.

    seriously though, ill say 315. not impressive, but ive never been a guy that likes to "max" out on any lift just for lbs. ive always been a "bodybuilder". and instead of just upping the poundage, id focus on a mind muscle connection and quality of contraction. the heavier ive benched, the more I feel it in my shoulders and triceps, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
    I never really like squats because im tall and probably not built well for them. those are my excuses and im sticking to them :).

    but I love deadlifts. I could pull 5 plates once upon a time, so maybe I got you there.
    pull ups, deadlifts, hanging leg raises, in a tri set, all in the squat rack. add some side laterals and/or upright rows for wider and thicker back, six+ pack abs, and boulder shoulders. thats mainly what id go to the gym for.

    According to the 1rm calculator it's 488 but most I've done ever is 470 raw. No gloves, wrist wraps or anything.

    The most I've done was 345lbs at 195lbs at a mock meet our gym was doing a few months ago. 12 more weeks and I'm hoping to put up at least 385 I'll probably be closer to 220 at that time though.

    390 lbs @ little less than 220 bodyweight. Don't max bench very often. I think everyone in the powerlifting thread knows I'm shooting for 405 by end of year.

    When I'm shooting for something big I like to do negatives in the power rack with something heavier. So if I'm going for 405 I will do negatives with something like 425. That way when you go for it it doesn't seem so heavy.

    No idea. Only thing these days i care about 1rpm is my front squat. I dont believe its a very good idea long term to be pressing the envelope on all those tiny joints in the upper body that a bench press stress to the max. Especially considering it has zero to do with my GOALS:D

    With that being said. I can hit 315 for 11 off cycle on da incline
    Pec builder of choice:cool:
