    Naturals - what do you bench?

    Maybe this should go under the motivation category. I keep getting stronger (bench 250lbs for reps) but don't look different.

    Anyhow, I can find lots of workout examples by Mr. Olympians that shows sets/reps/weights and programs for bench, squats, deadlifts, curls, weighted chins, etc. I am not sure if it is even possible for me to get to those levels, but if I did those workouts drug free, I wouldn't look like Mr. Olympia. Which is good, because I don't want to. I can find plenty on powerlifters, both natural and otherwise, so I know exactly where I am compared to an entry level powerlifter, the best powerlifters and everywhere in between. But I can't find much of anything on how strong you need to be to look like a natural bodybuilder.

    I know it is mostly volume and fat loss and not strength, but that is my point. Has anyone gotten a nice chest just benching 225lbs for tons of reps and sets? Or do you need volume above 405lbs? If you are the point where you seriously compete, do you mind posting your numbers? I may never get there, but it will still help with motivation.
