Bench Press Calculator: Calculate Your 1 REP MAX (1RM)

Bench Press Calculator
The Muscle & Strength bench press calculator can be used to work out your approximate 1 REP MAX bench press. These figures are not 100% accurate, but it serves as a good guide!

Bench Press Calculator

Instructions:

This bench press calculator can be used to work out your approximate 1 REP MAX bench press. The way this bench calculator works is it takes the amount of weight you can bench for a certain number of reps and uses a formula to calculate your approximate 1 REP MAX. Obviously, these figures are not 100% accurate.

To use the bench press calculator simply enter the weight in the first box provided and select the number of reps from the drop down box. For example, if I benched 225lbs for 10 reps I would enter 225 and select 10 reps. The bench press calculator works in both pounds and kilograms.

get off the bench for a while....train hard on machines, dips and dumbells for 3 months...then slide back into bench...you last max may have dropped but you will get back up there quick.
425 is still a great bench. my best is 375, but having 4 jobs and a family is keeping my max down to around 340.....but I don't worry about it much. I weigh 235 and can put that up 10 times....quite happy with that.

Try chains and or heavy partial reps. I had a bad shoulder injury in HS. 23 6ft 205lbs now, was at 315 in HS but couldn't bench heavy for a long time. Chains and partials have gotten back to 290 and I hope keep moving up. Change your workouts to keep muscles guessing too. Good luck, hit that 500 mark.

Jessie, 8 week program with tsunami bar, banded weights and variety of grip widths. Mondays work on speed. Maybe 65 to 70 percent of max effort. 10, 8, 5, then 9 sets of 3 From narrow to wide. Friday, go up to 85 percent but do 5 sets of 5 standard grip first at a decently heavy weight maintaining strict form. Then do 1 reps to 85 percent only. After I weeks test your max.

first last

I have always been strong even for my size but no. I never try my maxes anymore and i was always leg dominant.
I can bench 310 over 20 times but i dont believe i can rep 500 even once let alone more.
Maybe its better at 10 reps or less

This calculator is pretty spot on. I'm 47 y/o and am a 220. (I got a bench at work for myself and my guys to play with) I rep 225, 12 to 13 times unassisted and just maxed out at 315. All of my guys did their one rep max Monday and we were all within 5lbs of where the calculator said we would be. Not bad.
