    Just curious. My first set on the bench press is usually 135, and then on my last set I go back down to 135 and do a burnout set. The most I've done itthough is 20 times. By the way I'm 5' 11'' and weigh about 168, give or take a few pounds.

    Never tried to rep 135 as many times as possible, but I would imagine at least 25-30 times if not more

    Probably 20 times or so.

    Kinda pointless exercise to me though. I would rather build muscle

    [​IMG] I know it sounds like a stretch. It really isn't thatdifficult. I may just have to make a short film for a good laugh

    45 on each side right?

    I never tried to do my max but I easily did 20-25 reps and felt like I could do plenty more.

    Yup, just a 45 plate on each. I agree, I warm up doing 10-15 reps without even thinking twice about it. If I was really trying and got hyped,that's why I feel like I could do 25-30 reps if not more.

    Ive never seen anyone that small be that strong so I dont know. I would say it is very possible especially since he is short and has prolly has short arm. Myworkout partner is about 5'8 and 150 and is just as strong as me @ 5'11 215. The last time I hit 135 was a long time ago when we did 4 sets of 25(whichI couldn't finish) just for the fun of it. We usually warm up with a set of 225 8 times. When we first started i dont think I could hit 135 once. Get inthe gym boys!

    Trust me, I know it sounds questionable. I'm really going to make a short film next time I go to the gym. I'll have a weigh in rightbefore I lift.
