    Bodyweight Bench press for reps challenge

    On a standard flat bench load the bar up with your bodyweight rounded to the highest 5 lbs......for instance if you weigh 207lbs load the bar with 210....if you 201 lbs load the bar to 205 etc..and be honest with your weight fellas...once in the bench press position unrack the weight and lower the bar to your chest and press it up, each rep MUST touch your chest and go to nearly full if not full extension to count. NO HALF REPS!!! Do as many reps as you can then post your score......there is no weight adjustment because everyone will be benching their own bodyweight...Also, Video is a must. You have 3 days from the time you post a score to post a video if there is no video posted for your score in that time frame i will reset you score to 0....good luck everyone

    The Leader is currently this guy:

    25 reps is pretty good, it was hard to tell what the bar weight was - does he weigh 165 lbs?

    This looks like a fun idea. Would love to do it, but it would screw up my competition plans. I'm really curious how many times I could do my bodyweight.

    I'm 210. No way could I get 25 reps.

    Maybe... 6?

    Bodyweight Bench Press Challenge (video)

    post in reply to Bodyweight Bench Press Challenge. I weighed around 168-169. 170lbs on bar. I was pleasantly suprised with 30 reps. I've been training with high weight and low reps.

    Can't tell with the angle, but looks like your butt comes off the bench on just about every rep

    My butt never lost contact with the bench. Even if it would have it, that wouldn't really make much of a difference.
