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.

For the record: this is exactly the type of post I'm talking about. At 220lbs body weight, the WORLD RECORD raw deadlift is 901lbs. For drug tested powerlifting athletes in this weight division (220lbs) the world record deadlift is 859lbs. Furthermore, the world record raw squat is 683lbs and the world record raw bench press is 529lbs. This man is either one of the most well rounded, strongest athletes to EVER live, capable of crushing world records in squat, bench, deadlift as well as the powerlifting world record raw "total" by more than 100lbs... or is simply a liar. You can come to your own conclusions.

LOL at the people liking his post.

Why do all the dudes on here inflate thier numbers to such ridiculous amounts of weight?

I have been working out 5 day a week, high intensity(2 hour sessions) for nearly 2 years.

I started at the age of 17, standing 5'7.5"(171cm) tall and weighing 130lbs.
I couldn't even bench 95lbs.

I'm now 19, 5'9" (175cm) and weighing 147lbs.

Bench: 225lbs. I rep 165lb for 10. So this calculator is Pretty Spot on.

I would estimate that only about 10% of the people on this site can actually bench what they claim they can (with full range of motion). They probably also lie about the dimensions of their"equipment".

Hey Kyle, thanking for reply ... I actually do something similar. For flat bench I do 3x10 same weight for each set. Right after I do Standing overhead press for 3x12. If I hit each and every rep I go up by 5 lbs the next workout and stay with that weight until I complete each set and rep. I also do it every other day in between is either leg day or a rest day.

Mike,
Concider moving up to 5 sets while maintaining your current number of reps per set.
(may require an obscene amount of pre-workout)
The pure overload it places on your body will build large muscles much quicker (if your body-building) ASWELL as boost your 1 rep max FAST! (If you going for strength)
I started using the routine I posted above during my second year lifting. Compared to my first year (when I was doing less volume/sets) the improvements to muscle size and strength were very noticeable!

I work with a weight I can rep 10 times on flat bench. I try to hit that weight for 10 reps for 5 sets, rest 3mins between sets. After I do a Standing overhead press with a weight I can rep 5 times, I try to hit this weight for 5 reps for 5 sets. Rest for 3mins between sets. Move up 5 pounds every 2 weeks on bench. Same for OVH press if possible. I work this routine every other day. Gained 15lb of straight lean muscle in less that 2 years.
