Sup , I was wondering what body weight-bench press weight ratio is good? I dont lift alot of weight ( 290 lbs bench press) but a dude told was very good ratio for my 170 lbs of body weight. Is that true?

depends on your goals
i dont really care how much i bench, i just need to be able to press my bodyweight 75+ times consistantly
as far as a strength index 290 at 170 is very good.
i think i can manage 245-250 on a good day and im 175 ...ish lolwatch me make Sir Issac Newton my bitch in my Oly log:

if seeing someone else benching more gets you motivated, you are not self motivated
if seeing someone else bench less doesn't motivate you, you are not self motivated
when I asked how you felt about your bench press, you asked what I meant.
I am self motivated. I set goals and work toward them. When I reach a goal, a new goal is set. Self motivated.
Nice bench press thoughGoals:

2.0+ bw Squat
2.5 bw Deadlift
