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

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

Weight:
Number of Reps:
 

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.

The scaling is good and relative if your conditioning is moderate but the intricasies of reps quantifying max are regulatble to your...durabilty. Try n make sure you can do a few sets with your 6-8 limt for best results.

Hello. On a serious side I just turned 15. Im 6'1"" at 185 pounds.
I can bench press 185lbs 10 times with a 1 rep max of 225. How can I get my numbers higher? Any real help would be great and appreciated. My squat is 285lbs 14 times with a 1 rep max of 365lbs.

Try to ensure your set rep proportion stays above 59.9% your bench maximum. Try to adjust weight toward getting upto an addition press per lift day, IF its less than 3 times a week. The proportional % should work out to 75-80% your maximum. Maybe, try even heavier, IF you have a spotter. Get enough protein. Good luck.

That's not how it works, if you can do 90lbs, 15 times, your 1 rep max is about 135

Benched 225 for 10, 255 for 6 and 265 for 5, gonna try a 300 max and go up from there, hopefully hit 3 plates, squat around 350-375 max but i dont like going too heavy on squats or deadlifts cus my knees are messed from years of playing catcher in baseball, deadlifted 500 with a hex bar in high school figure i could do at least 550 maybe 600 now, i hate deadlifting straight bar but i figure i could get around 450, i weigh 215 and im 20

SO MANY FAKE POSTS:
My real numbers:
5'9', 17yo, 166lbs, 13.5% bf
Bench: 225lbs
Deadlift: 295lbs
Squat: 245lbs
I took a three month break near the end of last year but then had two workouts per muscle group this year so far. Those were the most updated numbers. Gonna hit Bench 245, Deadlift: 335, Squat 275 in less than a month, but i'm not shy about my real numbers.

Im 17, 5'9.5", 71kg (157lbs)
I have been training for hypertrophy for roughly a year.
My bench is at 105kg (231lbs)
I believe either the Australian or World record U18, U74kg is 127.5kg for bench press.
Is it realistic that I could bench 130kg (287lbs) in 18 months and therefore break the record?

I would say I am roughly 16% body fat (estimate) so I could put on some more muscle mass and lean down to stay within the weight class.

Thanks

My bench is getting better I'm at 12 at 225lb but my sqt needs help. I've been working a lot at home on form and endurance with the movement but I would appreciate any advice to get it up to 405, in 3-6 months... Also is that possible with a basic program.

moving from 295 to 405 is not going to be possible in 3-6 months, short of using a lot of steroids. Maybe 3-6 years. I've gone from 295 to 355 in about 5 years, but I've had some injuries along the way. It's been a slow grind. Others have done it quicker; that's just been my experience. Gaining strength becomes more difficult as you approach your potential.

Judging by what Ard La wrote, I think he's talking about his squat. I'm not sure why everyone is listing all their stats for every lift they do on a bench press forum...probably because it becomes difficult not to brag when one talks about their selves. But you are definitely right about it being more difficult to make gains as you approach your potential.

Mike, I think you are right about him asking about squats. Sorry, I was talking about bench press. Squats would have the potential to move up much quicker than bench. Probably not from 295 to 405 in 3-6 months, but still exponentially faster than bench. I don't squat due to a back injury, but when I was younger I used to do some impressive stuff on the hip sled and lighter squats, and I was amazed how fast I could add weight. thanks MIke.

max bench is 260-70ish incline is about the same I haven't done squat in like 2 years but I leg press 500 max. I'm 18, 6'3 and 205. My question here is I'm wanting to get about 12% body fat what's the best way for someone who's already on a 2300 calorie diet to drop that last bit ?

a 3X5 or 5X5 is the best way for a beginner to gain strength. Your frame has a natural max and based on the lower rep scheme your neuromuscular adaptation/efficiency will get you to your natural threshold with eight to ten months. Genetics plays a big role in the equation, but this doesn't mean you're limited to the lowest factor of it--strict form, proper diet, rest, and dedication to a strength training program can advance you to your best possible self. |

Goodluck, don't get discouraged, and keep your goals at the forefront of your mind daily.

Yes, but it depends on your routine and nutrition. Are you getting enough protein (0.7 - 0.9 grams/lb of body weight is the metric I use)? And, are you challenging yourself or lifting within your comfort zone?

I am 16 going to be 17 in a month. I am 5'6 180 pounds with a bodyfat percentage between 15 and 16%. Bench: 225 ( decline a bit higher for some reason 245). Dealift: 350. I don't squat as it hurts my neck but for the leg press: 8 reps of 725 (and not the reps where u barely move your legs I do them with good form as there is no need to cheat against yourself) . I am just wondering how this is compared to other 16 or 17 year olds as the people at my gym or usually in their 20s or 30s. Just trying to know if this is good or bad for other ppl my age who work out. Also I'd like to note I recently dropped from over 30 % bf in the past year where I weighed over 215 pounds
