    Thanks, that makes more sense now - its nearly 2 of me, I'm not a big person

    Anyway it all depends how big you are, its unlikely I could lift that but if I weighed 250 pounds it'd be easy...
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    I benched 225lbs for 3 reps. My max is around 235lbs. I'm confident that I'll be able to bench 245lbs for 2 reps in about a month from now. Hopefully my body weight will drop down to 225lbs due to the increased exercising. This is an above average lift even if it is only my bodyweight. I'm a normal civilian, not an athlete. It appears that I should bench 245 though, but most guys who weigh over 200 lbs can not bench press in proportion to their weight unless they lift weights regularly. I've been lifting weights off and on for about 5 years.

    Besides, endo is right. Your size does matter!!

    another factor is how long a person has been doing it. Even if you stop for a certain peroid and start again, you can pick up where you left up again in no time (yourm muscles never forget)

    I weigh in at about 190 pounds also a normal civilian an been going about in the gym for 2 and a half years now and my max is 286.5 pounds for one rep.

    A lot of it depends on your eating habbits and especially the program you follow.

    I don't expect a 150lbs person to bench press 225lbs, but as you get bigger the ratio of body strengh to size increases yields diminishing returns. Most big people are fat, they are not all pure muscle.

    And Why is that? Does one have to be a certain weight to be able to do something else?
    The power of the mind is something great. Being focused in the gym along with the right atmosphere and training parter is the winnning formula.

    The right combination of steriods will work wonders, yeah that's true. Why are you a small 190lbs.

    Hah, how false is that. Your body periodically dines on your muscles if it needs a certian nutrient... and whatever you're not using gets broken down after awhile.

    It takes 8-10 weeks or so of dedicated working out to get back to where you were say a year ago. If you took steroids than you will never get back to where you were.

    Why is it so hard for you to believe that there is some people better than you?

    Because I would rather fight. I did not say that I was better than anyone, but that is what you are implying. I just think that 225 is good for someone who isn't on roids.

    I don't go to the GYM, but my brother does.
    I asked him how much he usually does, and about his weight:

    olympic weight: 260 pounds

    his body weight: 160 pounds

    he's also about 6'' 1'

    He only takes some proteins, because he's vegetarian.

    I think he does weights about 4 times a week; plus boxing 3 times a week.

    How'd you clasify that, TK?
