its not your height cause my height is 5'6" also you could put more weight on if you want to push more weight?

Being only 5'6" is a great advantage in benching, so its not your height thats holding you back

hey paulmc18..Im 5'6½ so I don't think it's your height ;)

I've done a 12rep at 141lbs bodyweight. That was several yrs ago and Im stronger now, but I haven't done any max rep sets for 5yrs. I only train fpr max strength and speed. I will try this in my next session though.

How ya doing James, im not gonna try it as it will mess up my training, I like to go heavy, however the other day I did 160 x 10, 190 x 1, 140 x 10, 100 x 20, if I recall rightly I did try it once and got over 50 reps, if theres a cash prize then of course il give it ago !!!

In England our weights are largely in kg, 220 lbs = 100 kg, so it is a nice round number for us.

Here was my last workout

225 for 16
275 for 8
315 for 4

Those were all to failure. I am not going to train with 225 anymore. I am going to start with 275 till i get for 10 and then i am going to move up the weight again. It is funny cause a couple weeks ago, i could only get 225 for 10, I was stuck there for about 4 weeks. I said F*CK it and went up to 275, now 4 weeks later, i am close to doing 275 for 10 and put 6 reps on my 225. Almost time to go to 295 or soon to 315 for 6. I can't wait to be able to do that.

Right, got 225 for 5 then 195 for 10 then tried the 100kg for as many as I could and managed to get a measley 32! bollocks you have now got me intent on smashing through 50 reps at 100kg at the expense of my one rep max!

I think you guys should tell us your heights and bodyweights too.

I've never tried 100kg.. but I can do 6 reps with 90kg after a couple of sets (x8) at 82-84kg.. at 78kg bodyweight & 5ft 9. So I think I could maybe do 3-4 with 100kg after just a warm up?.. what you guys think?

I did 33 reps at 225 pounds. Not bad for a guy who is turning 40 years old on August 7th (tomorrow). I think I will try and see how many I can do on incline press next time I do chest. I know it should be pretty high, becasue its my favorite lift....it should in the high 20's. I will let you know.
