    What % of population can bench press 300 pounds

    I know I've seen it before but can't find it now. Just out of curiousity, anyone know the percentage of people who can press 300 pounds? Thanks.

    less than 1%. Think about it. Just go to the mall or normal everyday places. There is no way 1 out of every 100 people can bench 300 pounds.

    I go to a gym that is considered like one of the more hardcore gyms in the city, and I've seen maybe like 2-3 massive guys who have benched 3 plates a side or more.

    Think about it, I'm pretty sure there aren't any women that can bench 300 pounds, and if I'm wrong and there's some butch powerlifter that can it's still an insignificant number.

    So that's 50-52% of the population out.

    You think that one in 50 guys can bench 300 pounds?

    Out of the entire male population I would bet that maybe 1 in 300 or 400 can bench 300 pounds.

    So I'd say accurately the number is less than a 100th of a percent.

    if there's only a few guys in your gym benching 3 plates, it isn't very hardcore.

    plenty of women pler's can hit over 3 plates. i won't even get into the strength of the women oly lifters who put most male lifters on this board to shame by a mile(or ton).

    it is considered really good for the average person if he/she can bench their own weight once. food for thought.

    I've known a couple women who can bench 300 but like you said, they're hardcore powerlifters. And you're right, at a lot of gyms you don't even see that many guys pressing 300, you'd have to be doing reps in the 250-260 range. The hardcore gyms there are quite a few though.

    Well on this board most of us go to the gym, so it probably seems like more people can bench over 300lbs.

    I'd bet a good portion of americans don't go to the gym at all because they are too lazy, busy, or whatever. I bet more don't go than do, so how many people do you think REALLY can lift 300lbs without any training?

    I bet there's a lot too but even if you're only counting the US, 1 in 1000 people is roughly 300,000 Americans that can do it.

    Well what proportion of adult males worldwide do you think actually weight train? Maybe 1 in 300 or 400? If that. I wouldn't be surprised if it's closer to 1 in 700 or 800. Three quarters of the world's population lives in the developing world, gyms with barbells and weightlifting aren't exactly very common in such places.

    And of those adult males who weight train what proportion of them can bench 300 pounds? Maybe 1 in 400 or 500? I'm being realistic, you guys who work out really consistently and can throw around huge weights are very uncommon, this is a bodybuilding board, you can't use this as an indicator of the average around the world.

    yeah no kidding, realize people powerlifters and bbers make up a tiny % of the population. Honestly just look at people in your every day life. At work I easily see 150-200 people a day. In a WEEK I probably see 1-3 people who can bench 300 or more.

    The average guy can't even bench his own bodyweight. I read that somewhere...don't remember where though...but the general population is pretty weak.

    In the gym-oriented crowd, pretty much everyone can bench their own bodyweight, but 2-3x their bodyweight is hard to find in most gyms.

    I don't consider 300,000 a lot...if you consider US population 300 million..that is .1% of the population..which isn't that much. I guess its all about what you consider to be a lot.

    I would say extremely small. A few gifted athletes and some "logger,farmer etc" type guys who are just all around big and strong but don't formally workout.

    at my gym, its kinda like a fitness center but a bodybuilder is the manager. ive seen at least 10-12 people put up 315. ive seen about 4 people rep it 8 times, and 2 people rep 405 8 times. i also saw some barbell shoulder shrug 550 for 8.

    id said about 2%
