How impressive is a 315lb bench press?
My current 1 rep max is 225lbs, which, I don't care what anyone says, is impressive to a non gym goer. As a 6'4" ectomorph, with long arms, I'm anything but ideal for benching (or squatting), but I've worked hard to get where I'm at now. My eventual goal is a 315lb bench. I see this as a fairly distant reality, given my current lack of progress in that area. My question is; how rare is a 315lb bench press in gym goers? It's a vague question I know. Ultimately my point is, that being able to bench almost two full grown men, is very impressive, and that it's only the existence of the excetionally strong that seems to make a 315lb bench press seem run of the mill, when in fact it is, by general standars, extremely impressive. Don't you think?
