Bodyweight Bench For Reps!

Admin1

This challenge is to see how many times you can bench your bodyweight for reps.

Rules:
-Full ROM only. Chest to lockout.
-Touch and go style is ok.
-Glutes must be on the bench. No airborne ass.
-Weight of bar has to be MINIMUM of your bodyweight. If you weigh 177, no benching 175. Find fractional plates or round to 180.
-Test is how many bench reps you can get in one set. No racking. Pausing for breath is ok.
-Competition runs indefinitely.

Weighed in at 98kg. 15 reps on 100kg. Looking at the video it looks like I had a couple more in me...

It's harder than I thought!! I've been doing madcow for bench and it's max of 5 reps. Doing good numbers there & thought I'd get to 20 no prob!! Not to be this time!!

Here's the vid anyway with 19 reps w/100kg on the bench

Bench press 100kg x 27 - YouTube

well done Taurus, I can see you smashing 20 very soon.

well done vonframm, 27 is the standard.

Admin could you please put up a list in first post for those who provide video evidence of reps.

30 is the standard - Ink is a bench freak!
