HA! 98% of these numbers are complete & utter bullsh!t. You'll have to excuse me for not believing all this crap....

Only cats I believe are: wukka & C.S. - and that's because of one reason: I've seen them do said number.

Period.
I don't even believe my self. :(

I bench 185. I weigh about 160 so not too impressive but I dont lift very often, I just like training other ways. I benched 220 when I was a sophomore but I played football then and was always benching. Now if I did a bench workout I would be sore for like three days. I actually am not even sure I can get 185 anymore, but I think I could still get about that. Geeze, there are either some liars, or strong dudes on here, mostly everyone is around 300 it seems. Not taking anything away from that but I am much stronger now than when I was a sophomore even though I bench a lot less, I feel that there are just better ways to train in terms of wrestling and mma.

have you tried doing forced reps or negatives, I use it whenever I hit a wall with my lifting poundages.

Well I've been doing Close grip bench, 2 board press, and a mixture of DE and ME Bench. I've also been working on my actual bench technique a lot and I'm pretty happy with where I am right now overall. I'm still aiming for 225 by June and have a pretty positive feel about it.

Seems like people either make up fake numbers or are crying because they bench 5 or 10 pounds more than they way.

technically your considered a strong person if you can bench your body weight, most of the country cant

no reason to be upset if you cant bench as much as TB, hes a freakin competitive weight lifter. hell Im pretty ****in strong benching 310, and weighing about the same as him, but im also a soon to be professional fighter and hes still way ahead of me.

get real people. the threads not for going on a whaampage.

I bench 200 now, so I went down 5. One interesting thing is I only weigh 164 now. I weighed in the 180's for a few months, then I stopped weighing my self or working out at the gym as consistently (doing different type of work outs at home) and I'm down to 164? It makes no sense to me.
