I got two reps of 420 lbs. Never tried more than that, it hurt my wrist.

I was 19 yrs old, playing football my freshman year at a Juco. 6'6 255lbs though.

agreed. its a young mans game. I beat my body up in my 20s pounding heavy weight and I still pay for it in my joints.

I've benched 250 at 170 lbs. I feel like that's more impressive than being some fat arse that can bench 350 or something similar

Roiders? I lift 5 days a week.....I don't do roids.

I could just say swimming is for pussies? But as long as one is off their dead arse and trying to stay in some type of shape......I have no problems with them.

I only do pushups now. I did the lean gains for 5-6 weeks and quit once I got a little hurt.

I do P90x, run, HIIT, etc. now.

325 in HS.

I don't do flat bench anymore since it hurts my shoulders. However I rep 4x8 @ 275 on Incline. Pretty sure I could still do over 300, but doing a max is silly.

I could get them.....I'm just past that point in my life. I gain/lose plenty with just eating and OTC supps.

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

Age is the biggest factor for me. I'm 34 and don't want shoulder issues.

Plus, my jugs are sufficiently "sxexy" right now without benching.

swimming is hard. if you left real heavy you will struggle wiht the range of motion it takes to swim efficiently enough to do more than a couple laps. great workout. I just hate cold water
