I've never fully understood the fascination with comparing PR's or maxes when people have different types of strengths and body types. However, I constantly get asked what my max bench is. Thing is, I don't know. I don't have enough weight. I only have 370 lbs total. I understand that my reps vs my max will likely differ from someone else's, but I'd like to be able to give a ballpark figure to these people. I'm too big to not look like an idiot when I say "I don't know". I figure the weightlifting brainiacs around here might be able to give me a good idea what my max might be since I'm too cheap/poor to buy more weights and see. Not to mention, I train alone in my basement, so maxing out would be kinda dangerous. :icon_cry2 Long story short: On Monday, I benched (flat) 345 for 12 reps. More specifically for 12, 9, 7, 5, and 4. Any idea what a max might be? I'm strong, but kinda retarded with all of this scientifc stuff with weightlifting. Any ideas would be appreciated. Happy lifting!
