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’ve been working out for a little over 2 years but I quit lifting as much about a year ago and my max went down to 205 for a while. Also I had a hand injury to that also had a factor in my lack of gains.

That's awesome your fourteen and test levels are just starting to increase and you're only 135 pounds 120 isn't your max it's what you're benching. Do the calculator and see what it says. You will be surprised by your max.

I'm 23 and measure 6'1 at 205 lbs. I can bench press 305 but I'm a golfer and not really working out to swell up, even tho over this winter I've gone to more of bulking up type lifting vs lean lifting which I do about 8-9 months of the year. Just trying to build muscle over the winter and start cutting and leaning around the 1st of march.

Could someone please give me an honest answer no sarcasm please I no a man would be strong to bench press his own weight and imprisivly strong to bench double his own weight but what if a man could bench press,61 lbs over double his own weight as in he weighed 142 and 16 people including six or 7 cops watching he benched 345lbs 3 times with out a spotter well the spotter was like 3 feet away be so we all knew he could not cheat and the guy weighed in officially at 142 and we all watched him bench 345 lbs 3 times and we saw this on the reagular we all hung out on the weight pile and worked out 4to 6 days a week oh and in case u r wondering he benched 61 pounds over double his weight

That's really impressive but if he keeps that up for no bigger than he is he will risk damaging his shoulders and that's a tough injury to come back from.

I played football for 4 years and in my jr year I ran into the same problem the biggest problem I had was with my labrum in my shoulder its been 2 years since then and I still have some side effects from that my advice would be to start workout out the shoulders and he should be okay I can still bench good weight I just have to be mindfull of my shoulder

If you can get 205 3 times then your max should be around 220

Pro Tips: I just started using Creatine for a month and i improved my bench. I used to bench 225lb in 2016 and 2017 but never exceed over 255-275lb. Finally Today(12/19/2017) I make that milestone and bench 2 reps 275lb.

This calculator works, lay off the pre workout and prohormones. That shit will get you stacked but the damage you do to your body is irreversible. I've gone 2 years without any supplements, I only consume whey protein. Takes longer to get stronger but same effects and a better heart.

Yeah, this sounds like the guy to take advice from.... completely contradicts himself by saying he only consumes whey protein... right after saying he's gone 2 years without any supplements. Last I checked whey was a supplement.... Oh, and more to the point on the longer to get stronger statement you're not going to get that much stronger no matter how long you lift when you're in your late 30's and beyond unless you are juicing or on test or are genetically gifted and have a big frame. I'm 42 and have been lifting my butt off for the last 5 years taking only creatine and whey and my bench has only increased about 15lbs in that time. This coming from someone who has been lifting for 25 years. Keep in mind that when you start getting your lifts up high, such as 350+ bench, 550+ squats etc. those numbers go up a lot slower than when you where breaking plateaus at lighter weight simply because the weight is getting incrementally heavier. Don't let this dude and others fool you about natural lifting unless you are a naturally big person with a great genetic package!

The comments sound right. Whey may be a supplement, like vitamins and such, but it's not even close to the kind of supplements like creatine or steroids. I'm 58 and have been slowly but steadily increasing my bench through hard work and careful diet. I'll accept wherever my max ends up at. Screwing up my health and decreasing my longevity with PEDs ain't worth it.

I can do 21 reps with 225, so this calculator is pretty accurate. Just keep your technique in mind when lifting; it can help you or kill you.
