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 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.
