    All I would say is, that's not bad. Keep it up.

    However your question is all about comparability. For instance, is it great compared to the usual gym rats? Recreational lifters? Powerlifters? People of your age? Furthermore, have you trained 1 year, 3 years etc?

    The main thing is to improve. If you are concerned about this lift such that you are wondering if you are good enough, then let this concern drive you to bench even more; 90kg, then 95kg, then 2 plates.

    But to put it in top level competitive perspective, in the 60kg class, Joe Bradley bench pressed 397 (180kg) raw in a full meet, and Rick Couch got 410 (186kg) in (I think) a bench-only situation.

    Lol mate, you're going to be gaining body weight down the road, no longer in the 60kg class. But more about getting bigger and stronger, less worries about records.

    Why do you keep asking? Your bench is better than some, less than most. Keep working at it, and it will improve.

    an old school standard is 1.5 x bw for bench press. so you'd be doing pretty well if you could get it up to 93kg.

    the other standards are:
    overhead press - bodyweight
    squats - 2 x bw
    deadlift - 2.5 x bw

    I've always found that t-nation article to be a little weird on their multiplicators.

    They say to be in the highest category (Great) you need a 2x bw benchpress but only a 2.75x bw deadlift?

    I think the 2x bw bench raw is literally unachieveable for most people, while the 2.75x deadlift is much easier to get.

    80/62= 1.2903

    I'm a poor bencher, and I use 305/199= 1.5326


    Just my opinion though. Maybe I'm just hard on myself.....

    Chances are, if you can bench 2X BW raw, you're going to have a very difficult time DLing 2.75X BW (and the same can be said backwards). I've only met a handful of 2X bw raw benchers. They are rare. But almost all good middleweight PLers can get 2.75bw DL with 5 years of training.


    I agree with you though.

    I agree with you though.
    Eh, they're both pretty easy for lightweights. It just becomes more of a challenge as you reach full-grown man size.

    ^This. Which is why wilks is used (for those of you who do not know)...because size doesn't equate to strength. LW and MW's can total 10x BW. There is no way SHW's will be able to do this.

    There is however a debate on the accuracy of wilks being used on just a single lift.

    IMO, a strong bench to me personally for a 62kg BW male would be 100kg+ raw and 120kg+ single ply.

    I don't get why the good squat and dl are both the same 405lb / 2x bw. For most people that's significantly easier in dl.

    They say to be in the highest category (Great) you need a 2x bw benchpress but only a 2.75x bw deadlift?
    SHW raw bench vs. raw DL is almost exactly that ratio.

    I think the 2x bw bench raw is literally unachieveable for most people, while the 2.75x deadlift is much easier to get.
    For you, maybe. For me the opposite is true.

    Haha, yeah I see what you mean so I should have added the condition that it's only true for average sized people.
    Or maybe i'm just trying to make excuses for my own ****ty bench/lack of seeing anyone bench 2x bw irl.
