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

    That's one thread where people would be welcome to lie. I do NOT want to see proof, thanks. [​IMG]

    I know a few girls that are fairly slim and athletic looking but can bench > 200. 155 isn't out of line.

    I'm sure people are right about the dead lift. I'm nervous about that exercise. I think bench press is a reasonable indicator of strength. Seeing that, the people that bench a lot are usually strong.

    I weigh 175, my goal is 125% of my weight.

    Don't be. Just start light, build up slowly. You won't regret it.

    I weigh 180 and rep 225 consistently on flat bench. On dumbbells I usually warm up with 70s and work my way up to 100-110s.

    To answer this seriously, I weigh about 210 lb and rep at a bit over 315. I'd like to get my 2 rep above 400 but I'm about 30 lbs short at this point.
