Bench press your own body weight

Can you bench yourself? One of the upper body bragging abilities this one, requiring good strength to weight ratio.

Challenge is simple - using free weights, fully bench press, only once, your own body weight. The leaner challenger probably has an advantage on this one!

Try and attempt this with a spotter to make it safer.

“Yeeahhh... completed this a while back and never came back to click complete. My advice is to keep at it, benching seems to increase by itself as you do it for a while. ”

David D Bench press your own body weight Challenge

Contributorsilver David D weighed in at 187.5 .. wearing a hat, white tee, shoes, and gym shorts. hit 225 for 6 in my first set after warmups. it says one rep max is 270 ... I feel that's a little high, probably a one rep max of 255. First time benching today in over a year and a half lol Reminder : Push ups, go a long way!! I remember when 20 was difficult a couple months ago, now I don't feel comfortable unless I bust out a 50-rep set. Work harder gentlemen. ladies, get ur pushups in when you can, don't stress em ;)
