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.

6 foot 185 pounds and my calculated max is 238 (11 reps of 175) but just 2 weeks ago i one repped maxed 215 so i dont know how accurate this is. I did just start the boring but big workout program ( its a 5-3-1 program) so i dont know if it has helped me that much that quick or what :/

This only really accurate if you keep the reps low. Try doing your max triple. It will be a lot closer to your true 1 RM.

I really wish everyone who posted there stats ( HAHAHA ) had to include a video. So those of us who actually know how to bench could laugh at the butts coming off the bench, bouncing off the chest, only coming half ( if even that far) way down ect.

44 years old 6ft 195lbs, 225 25-28 reps, raw 1max 355
After 3 years back into weight lifting and working out. It takes me almost half an hour to warm up now.

At 24 years old 175lbs, 2-3 reps 385, raw 1 max 405

Started at 19 years old 5ft 10 in 115lbs soaking wet, 45 (the bar) 5-6 reps at best
Bench didn't help as much in sports. Clean an jerks is the ticket. In my prime about 315 all time best but 275 consistently.

I'm 50. I benched pressed since I was 14. Did 225 28 times once. Benched 405 once. Just had my second rotator cuff surgery. I now do 3 sets of 30 with 100 pounds on the machine with the ladies. Most college football programs don't bench anymore. It's all about speed and core and agility.
Stop benching. But if you must, and I get it, then warm up big time. If your not sweating, don't get on your back.

Hey man your strong for the most part because you can bench more than your body weight but just on a pound for pound level it's decent.

No you're not stuck at 235 remember that benching is not the only workout that lifts your max bench press you need to do pushups with weights on your back, curl more and then use the dumbells to do shoulder and chest excersizes. Remember deadlifting because you are on you're back during the process of benching therefore you're back strength needs to be very good.

Work on your legs. Work less frequent on your chest. Try plyometric push-ups

Tony, I was stuck at 295 for a long time, then went to my friend Danny's garage, and got 325 last year, at the age of 52. His garage has produced 4 work benchpress champions, drug-tested. I documented this in a self-published book, "Power Guru of Monsta Garage." It's on Amazon. Also, he trains with a lift that is easier on the joints.

What's with all the excessively heavy not-tall guys in here? If you're less than 6ft tall but weigh over 200 lb, you're overweight, always.

You're joints; tendons, ligaments and cartiliglage will not thank you for making them drag so much dead weight around.

Lol. Unless you are on massive doses of steroids there is no way you're 5'11, 270 lbs, and 11% body fat.

If you're under 6 feet, natural, and weigh more than 200 lbs, you're probably just getting fat.

Fat Bast, you sound like you have no knowledge in the field. I am 32 and just began training again. I have over 10 years experience in natural bodybuilding, powerlifting and personal training. I am 5'10" and weigh 205. I have benched 430 and squatted 625 with a 350 power clean. There is nothing over weight with me bc i do condition training as well. You sound like a hard gainer. Why dont you go drink a gallon of milk in your little protein shaker and watch the veterans lift and see if you can learn something.
