a)How much should i be benchpressing
b)if its not at what i should be doing, how much should i be benching
thats plenty man. dont worry so much about bench now, chest developes later, just work on your legs, and your agility/foot work, thats something that takes a long time to develope
btw, being able to bench your body weight is considered average,and at his age well above average. as a grown man to be considered fit you should be able to do your body weight. 125% would be considered a strong person. i do 300, i weigh 205...ive been lifting since i was 14, and have a huge frame, so these numbers arnt real common, especially for a 19 year old. that being said a guy in my dorm weighs maybe 165, and does 350, but his arms are about as long as my weener. just do what your body can is the point im trying to make, it all depends on how your are and how you are shaped, long arms make it harder, and things like that. as for the weight you should be able to do, try and get to body weight.
