Too much. My shoulders hurts when I am asleep. They are too huge for my current body.
I have not tested how much in bench press I can do if it is one repeat but I do 60 kg with 10x3 repeats when I am in mood.
Too much gaming and passivity lately so I can hardly do anything at all. It starts with walking again...

Stop using the metric system you Euros... There's a lot of misinformation on this thread in regards to reps, sets, and so on. I've never met a personal trainer who had any idea what he was taking about. For overall health do mostly compound exercises and follow the 5x5 routine. If you want beach muscles then read Flex magazine.

When people say light they don't actually mean 10 lbs, more like a small enough amount that you ca do more than one, but heavy enough that you can feel it. You get stronger this way.

I'm a weak sauce girl so I can only bench like 5 reps of 95 lbs and deadlift about 155 lbs. BUT I usually do speed endurance training and plio beforehand.

the way we used to do it in football was a 6 week workout schedule that went something like this...
Week 1: 15% of max x10
25% of max x10
35% of max x10
40% of max x10
45% of max x10

Week 2: 15% of max x10
25% of max x10
35% of max x10
45% of max x8
45% of max x8

Week 3:20% x8
30% x8
40% x8
45% x8
50% x8

Week 4: 20% x8
30% x8
40% x8
50% x6
60% x6

Week 5: 30% x6
40% x6
50% x6
60% x6
70% x6

Week 6: 40% x6
50% x6
60% x6
70% x4
80% x4

You can adjust the weight based on how you are feeling as the weeks progress (this was also meant for a 5-day a week workout schedule). While I was doing this back in High School I was benching about 225lbs. and weighed about 145-150lbs. We did this every weekday for 5 lifts (bench, squat, incline, hang clean, and hang snatch).

I started lifting in high school. My first max test put me at 150. Not much seeing as I weighed about 145. I would arm wrestle some of the varsity students in the same class, and get my ass kicked. I wanted to be stronger like them so I wouldn't have to put up with assholes who were looking for fights, so I worked at it.

I can't lift much anymore, but back in my senior year when I started boxing, I benched 270 when I weighed between 175-180 pounds. So almost 2.0 or 2x my weight. I could also leg press 1,000 pounds.

Scorecard:
Less than 1.0: Weak
1.0-1.49: Ordinary
1.5 or more: You rule on the bench

For reference, this is me when my max was 240. Same weight as my 270 max, but in this pic I had more body fat and less muscle.



Not much else I can brag about in my life, so give me a break on this one

105 clean
82 snatch

Dunno about deadlift or bench, I never bother with them.

First started lifting in my second year of high school with very light weight and weighed about 215lbs.
Currently on bench-press my max is 225lbs, dumbbell curls 55lbs, and squat 275lbs; I'm 5'11 and weigh between 170-175lbs as my weight tends to jump around in that range.
