What is a good max bench press for a 14 yr. old?
There really is no "good max bench" for a certain age group. If your 120lbs, then a 240 bench would be awesome. If your 210lbs, then a 240 bench becomes not so great. But since your only 14 I'm assuming you haven't really trained all that much, and any bench is a good starting point.
My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003
Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock
You should be concentrating on your squat. That's what'll get you the chicks.
You should be concerned with not getting your a$$ trampled as a freshman
HahnB is right. Max bench for anybody really comes down to their weight and experience lifting.
Best way to cheat on deadlifts...
Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
When I was in Highschool some of my friends who were very athletic benched 200lbs-240lbs. These guys were in top shape though compared to the rest of the Highschool population.
when I was a freshman there was a guy on the football team that was 5'6 about 165 and he could bench 225 about 6 times
his biceps were about 17.5
and he had done 3-4 cycles...
He was the nose and I was the center and he named a defensive play the Ma-kula massacre in which he would pound the S outta me *LOL* it was hilarious
I was the center at 5'9 150lbs(dont ask why)
but I agree with other posters, it has everything to do with your height and physical maturity...wait until senior year to get a better gauge...
