Right now, about 170% of my body weight. When I was at my peak, I could do 200%.

The question should be how much do you squat or how much do you overhead press. Bench is such a non-functional lift.

Possibly the only question you could ask that will get you more flat-out lies than "what are you wearing today" posts without pics....

Oh, I don't know. A "this is how we are hung" thread would probably give a pretty good race.

bench is not a non-functional lift.

btw, deadlift is probably the best overall strength indicator if you have to pick one lift. second would be clean.

Hmm that either means she's quite strong or you're quite light.

I'm about 155, and she was much lighter but surprisingly strong. Somehow that was a big turn on for me.
