    Well if you just started probably around 50 pounds, And probably around 600 if your a professional powerlifter. You did say your a professional powerlifter didnt you?

    Your max should be the highest amount you can lift.
    A lot of people have 1 x bodyweight as a first goal. That would be 160 lbs for you. If you can bench your bodyweight, you have above average strength. Then work toward 1.25 x bodyweight, 1.5 x bodyweight, etc.
