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 believe it depends on how you do your rep scheme as to the accuracy of this calculator. I, for one, have always been better with reps as opposed to 1rm. I can get 315 5.5 times with barely any help, literally finger tips tapping it up, on rep 6 after the halfway sticking point. That puts my projected 1rm at 368 if entered as 5 reps. I suppose I'll have to get in the gym and put this sites formula to the test. Weight 245. Height 6'0

Increase your body weight using whey protein. You need more to work with to truly maximize your results. The whey will add mass and find u more to work with while lifting.

I am by no means an expert, Im self taught but I do currently hold the raw bench record for Canada and aiming for the world record in 6 weeks. I'll share what I do, many people may disagree but its just from personal experience and for me its working tremendously. Id start with your body weight then later your routine. As for body weight, calories are your friend as long as you work out hard. I personally eat 750G of raw blended oats mixed with protein, hemp seeds, and dehydrated kale mixed with cold water (150gx5 a day) and a big piece of lasagna before bed. Sounds boring but you get used to it ahah. Any more question feel free to ask pal

Wouldn't say it's entirely accurate. I typed in 275x2 and it gave me a max bench of 288. I then typed in 225x10 which I can also do, and it gave me a max bench of 299...hmmm......

I do not understand why ppl are calling other ppl liars on here and saying it is impossible to do what they say they can do!!!!! Everybody's body is different their fat percentage their height and weight and sex! The way they train and how many years they have been training or how many days a week they workout and what they do when they workout! Who cares just post what you do and move on!

I'm 16, 6'3, 180 lbs. and can bench 135 for 5 reps. I know it's not good but I'm just starting lifting so I guess we all have to start somewhere. Says my max is 158 which is probably pretty close to accurate because I think I can add another ten pounds on each side.

Darian wow that is impressive for a 16 yr old. I remember not so long ago when I was 25 use to struggle with 135 lbs bench press. I'm now 36 and can easily throw up 225 lbs 8 times on my off days and when I am feeling it I can do 245 lbs 8-10 reps. So what I am trying to say is stick with it DON"T GIVE UP and by the time you are in your mid 20's you will be a beast!!

that's not that bad just keep at it and when I started I tried to keep my reps at what I could press 8 to 12 times each set try dropping your weight down to something you can do that with and see if it helps

I'm 6 ft tall 190. And before I post what my supposed 1 rep max is, half of you are just shooting shit and can't lift that much. Lifting weights is used in different ways. I lift to maintain my health and youth. And getting on a random website and lying about your regimen is retarded. If I challenged all of you to post a video to confirm your statements, a very small percentage of you could be able to back up your statements without killing yourself or hurting yourself or breaking shit. Anyway I'm 31 and I have no idea if it's accurate. I just bought more weights and put up 250 3 times. I'm sure I could've put it up 1 or 2 more times but didn't try without a spotter. So I suppose 275 seems to be a one rep goal right now.

I'm 48... I weigh 187 lbs. and can rep 210 x 12 and today I repped 185 x 15 and 215 x 10 x 10 x 10
according to the calculator my max should be 291 lbs.
I've been doing bench press for a little over 3 months after taking a year off

Last January 2015 my best was 225 x 13 before I got more bulky than I wanted to be and stopped doing Bench Press...

When I was 36 I maxed 350 lbs. at a 205 lb bodyweight
my best reps then were:
225 x 15
245 x 12
275 x 9
315 x 4
330 x 2
I probably could have maxed slightly more than 350 lbs. but had not reason to and I did hit the even 350 mark:)
Traditionally, I've avoided Bench Press to avoid getting too bulky..

I have a friend that has been doing Bench Press for the last 6 years and can now rep 365 x 7
but he is so massively bulky that it is undesirable...
I mention this because we once maxed 350 lbs. during the same time period...

I see my slow growth now is due to my age of 48...
But in the regular 24 Hour Fitness Gyms I go to many, many people are visually impressed by my performance...
I think this is due to the fact that I look like I might be weak like them but am not and deliver decent numbers...
When I was younger and much more muscular I think people weren't surprised when I repped 225 x 15 and would rep 275 lbs and 315 lbs...
I looked like I could do that back then...
The gym is odd - a couple of guys can rep 365 lbs. and then there are a bunch of guys that can barely lift anything...

I'm 6 feet tall 185 lbs and bench 225 x 5. That's the most in my gym... I think that many people here who claim to bench 300+ plus are either lying or are doing partials.

Do you have better days than others? Yesterday was a pretty decent day for me. I performed 4 sets of standard bench press. 3 sets at 225 lbs 9 reps each and last set was good for 245 lbs 8 reps no spotter. Mind you a couple of weeks ago I wasn't able to do this much. Somedays are better than others I guess depends on rest, diet hydration etc..

Keep it up! I trained my 17 year old nephew, who went from 125 to a 270 bench press max in less than one year. Don't worry about what other people can lift and get after it.

I'm a 20 year old male. 185 pounds. My calculated Max is between 285-300. Back in high school I did 315 pounds for a rep. Felt like a badass.
