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.

Caino why is it bs that a person could bench more than they squat? It's rare but it does happen. All 3 of my lifts are very close.

Some of these comments are probably true. My only question is, how much of an arch is there in some of these presses? A flat back on the bench requires a full press. I have seen people bench 3 plates with such a tremendous arch that it equated to no more than a 3-4 inch press. Record whatever makes you feel good, you're only cheating yourself if you are dishonest.

Wtf r u talking about ur dumb arched back makes no fifference u still got to touch your chest and push up. If your butt leaves the mat then yes its wrong but it is still the same mechanics

An arch in your back is the proper bench form along with retracting your scalpula. Doing these things makes your chest push most of the weight and you get a better contraction which helps to build a big and strong chest. Flat bench press is called flat bench because the bench is flat not because you are supposed to have a flat back. Get your facts straight. Being flat is not proper, there is too much shoulder involvement which cam cause injury.

Dude r u serious how about this u bench your max with your back flat. Lemme know how the sholder surgery pec muscle reattachment and bicept reattachment goes. U may think it is wrong but we do it this way to avoid injury. So go ahead do it your way see how that suites you. Btw Ronnie Colman trains in the powerlifting style. And look at his chest. So if back beeing flat is better explain this?

Uhhhh... yeah an arched back does make a difference. If you arch your back too much it turns the push into a decline press, which is much easier than a flat press. I know a guy who is extremely flexible that does that and he benched 325 that way. We asked him, out of curiosity, to keep his back flat on another bench day, fresh, and he couldn't get 295. It's cheating plain and simple. Also, ask yourself this: If there's no difference then how come it isn't allowed in bench competitions? Your back has to stay absolutely flat during a press at any legit bench competition. Arching angles your back....

Well actually the amount of arch in your back makes a huge difference and can mess up your lower back big time. I've been lifting heavy for a while with no arch and haven't sustained any shoulder injury. I think that most of those injuries can be attributed to the fact that people are trying to bench more weight than there supporting muscles can actually handle. Heavy Military presses, are a staple in my workout every week. Almost all the greatest benchers i.e Leroy Walker, Eric Spoto & James Henderson use little to no arch.

It's not cheating actually, a proper bench press requires an arch back, a flat back bench is almost in possible, if you do a flat bench then the weight is either to light to workout with for you, also it may cause back problems if you don't have an arch, too much arch can cause back problems aswell, so it's not cheating. And powerlifters aren't cheating themselves.

Such Crap on here.... Weighs 118lb and benches 215lb... yeah right. If pressing 300lb+ was this common everyone in the gym could do it. Fact is.. most can't and never will.

A few years back 300lb on bench was the gold standard. Collegiate football players at Alabama (best strength program in the county and best facilities, including many NFL facilities) only rep on average 15-20 at 225. This equates to a 364lb max and this is a 200+lb athlete (future NFL players).

Half you scrubs state in your stats you bench 350... Do you know how tedious putting 350 on the bar is?
Who uses 2.5s?

Oh that's right- people who don't even lift.

The bsers piss me off!!! It is hard to build up over 315 on the bench. I am 6'1" 240 lbs with a 53" chest and 18" arms and my bench max is only 330 lbs. Now I am 42 years old and have some shoulder problems but I am still proud of my real bench max. Now I know not everyone on here is bsing..... We have a record board at our gym and a 160 lbs dude benched 305 there but that is freak strength.

Well Brian I suggest you find another gym. I can tell you the gym I workout at has countless members that can bench over 315 a handful that can bench around 405-420 and then me. I will be around 570-580 by the end of the year.

We have many bench presses over 400 lbs but not that weigh 160 lbs. When I was 28 my bench press was 405 and I weighed 220 and I was not even close to the biggest dude in the gym but I got a lot of respect. I am not saying no one can do 315 but when I hit 3 plates on each side it was a big deal to me back in 1992.lol

Hey guys, I'm 34, weigh 195lbs and in April got a new 1 rm of 365 for bench press. I don't do any other lifts as I have never had any formal training with weights. Curious if with these numbers I'd be competitive in the powerlifting arena or am I still way off?

I'm A master lifter and hold the state records in Alaska and yes 365 is a good bench and would be competitive in raw powerlifting it seems there are allot of guys in the 275 range after that it drops like a rock above 340 it gets to be very few in 205 weight class anyway 350 and above is destroyer zone .

Depends bud i mwan i have competed for about 4 yeara and id say this it depends on the comp. If its a push pull maybe but most grade on % above bw. Its a good lift but 1 can u do it paused like unrack hold touch chest hold lift hold rack hold. Its very slow also your but must remain on the pad but if you can do that you have a competitive lift. It also depends on if it is a drug tested there's some guys who weigh about 160 and take roids to a new level and are hiting over 400 but if your naddy that's pretty damn good

275 lbs was a breakthrough for me. My current max is 295 lbs. But am aiming for 315. I think you are right that above the 275 mark it drops fast!
