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.

I followed Dr. Squat's advice for years. Compensatory acceleration in particular. Has served me well into my 50s.

How often did you do pushups? Do you have any other training tips to help me get my bench press up?

This is damn good advice. If you are a young lifter, take notice of this. Wide grip may allow you to lift a little more, but it comes at a price. Focus on honing your technique and the big numbers will come.

I stopped power lifting at 34, got back to at 46 tore all the tendons in the right shoulder, had surgery, been 3 years and I'm back to normal. Make sure you're a tricep bencher not a shoulder bencher. I learned the hard way.

Shoulder bencher is wide grip, lowered straight down to upper chest. Tricep bencher is lowered just below the chest with elbows closer to your sides with shoulder width grip. When you bench theres a certain groove you're pressing up in. To change from more shoulder to mostly triceps your body has to learn a new groove and lock it in to muscle memory.

Nice numbers Tim, freak of nature at 50 . I am 44 myself, bench is currently 405. I would kill to reach 500, even if it was a one time deal. I got to 405 by using the 5x5 myself. In your experience, at my age is it possible to progress to that level? You noted you did it in your 30s.

100 reps with 225 your single raw rep would be a new world record. I've 65 reps with 225, I've managed 32 a couple months ago.
