average bench mark of 150lber?
first off let me say, im 19, 5'9 150-155lbs from southern Ontario Canada, I have done brick laying the past 3 years (only in summer when i wasnt in school) and the odd roof on the weekend, well anyways, I start off at 50lbs and do 10 reps, then add on 10lbs and so forth, usually doing 9-10 sets, so i make to my weight but struggle and get to 7-8 reps
I also curl 35lbs with my dumbells, do my butterflys with a combined weight of 70lbs
I was just wondering, how do I compare to, lets say bj penn, I assume hes benching a good 2-250 especially seeings how he use to be welterweight
also, the people that i know who work out dont fluctuate there weight and do 3-4 sets of there max, 150-200lbs should I be doing it that way? which is the best way to build strength, i don't want to gain weight im a happy lightweight so whats best for me?
