not impressive if you weighed 220 lbs. I weighted 170 back when I pumped up 300 bills. I don't lift that heavy anymore and haven't done barbell bench in many years. I doubt I could get up 205 more than a couple times.

My little neighborhood gym only has 70 lb dumbells and I use those for bench adn do high reps

I tried 315 the other day and BARELY got it once. Usually just rep 225 these days. I get a better workout with high reps.

One time.

I was 20 years old.

A very well built black dude walked up to me afterward I pumped it and said, "No offense man, but I've never seen a white guy as lean as you with arms that long bench that much." I laughed, thanked him for the compliment (?), then told him I'd trade builds with him in a heartbeat. He said the size would eventually come. He was sort of right.

I don't bench anymore, but could likely only do 215-230 today.

No. That would snap my arms off at the should joints and crush my chest.

Never actually did it but I've repped 240+ enough times that I would have broken 310.

What do you guys do for chest workout of you don't bench anymore? Machines.....dumbells......hammer strength?

What keeps you from benching? Injury? Age? Just don't wanna?

Max was 345 senior year in HS. Haven't attempted to go heavy since. No reason to.

Eta: weighed 225. Bench was never my best lift.
