MT 220lb bench press competition!

Following on from muscle eggs post on how many reps people can do with 220lbs (100kg) on the bench press, I thought it a great idea to turn this into another MT competition.
See:
http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=47312
I saw a few of you had tried it and so I challanged a few of my friends at home. Currently I have got 18 reps, but I told my friend (who is training for strongman and is basically a power house) and I thought he'd get about 30 - he got a massive 41 !!!!!!!

So over the next few weeks, on chest days, why dont some of you give it a go and post your reps here?

I am aiming for 21




Competition results so far!

    I thought I'd give this a go today and I got 10 comfortable reps, if I'd gone all out I might have got 2 or 3 more. May not sound like much, but considering this was only the third time I've benched in the last 6 months I'm not too dissapointed. (I prefer overhead pressing and I usually stick to low reps when I train generally)

    I recon if I were to bench regularly for a few weeks and try this again I could probably get 20. I'll give it a proper go later in the summer.

    I'd just like to say - well done to anyone who gets more than about 25-30, that is very impressive!

    And as for 41! WOW!! great lifting!

    I had a go at this today after i finished my flat bench, i managed 18 reps. But i think if i had a go after a couple of warm up sets i think(hope) i would get around 20-25 reps.

    It is my mission, in the next 8 weeks to join the 100kg crew. At the moment I dont know what the hell is wrong but my max is like 80k. This is so poor its shameful. The power of the Naps will prevail though over the oncoming weeks and I WILL BENCH 100 KG

    ive never tried repping 220, I was training for a strength test were i had too bench 225 as many times as possible in 60 seconds, and could get around 21-23. ive never maxed out on bench(waiting for a shirt i ordered too come in)but have gotten 315 for a triple raw.

    Iron, what happened to your shoulder? If it's a rotator cuff then it's not the end.

    Well i first dislocated it.. then i reinjuried it not long after. The doctor's really didnt know what was wrong with it at the time. The option I had was surgery which i couldnt afford or loads of pain pills and therapy formyself which is what I did. Im almost 100%. Just sucks cuss at the time of the injury I would have done over 400lbs uner 18yrs old. Just recently I did a bench program of mine and went from a 260-265 max to a 325 max on my way back up the big numbers. I wont be doing that much weight for awhile now, If i dont do something about my lack of ROM in my upper body, my life as a powerlifter will end short with server injuries.

    Man it'll never be over, you'll make it, I injured my shoulder 3 times by overtraining it or training incorrectly. I've now been doing exercises that would have continued to mess up my shoulder with ease for over 4 months with success. You'll make it man, just give it time!

    Well Im now olympic lifting, the best way to increase my ROM is to do high ROM and multi joint movements. Hopfully it will work.

    btw.. Van whats your bench max righ tnow?

    RE: MT 220lb bench press competition! 2003/06/13 14:39:42 (permalink)
    does high repping at a certain weight correlate to a max? For example this site saids that if you do 225 for 15 your max rep is 332 so does that mean if you do 30 reps at 225 you have a 664? Then so on? I did 225 for 9 at a bodyweight of 175lbs (gained 5lbs though recently so 180lbs) and the chart was pretty consisent with my repping I did 295lbs. Just wondering what you guys think about high repping correlating with 1 rep max. Oh, here is the website: http://www.joeskopec.com/repmax.html
