Best Answer

Bench pressing is based entirely on weight, height, and just how strong you are (which by doing workouts will make you stronger). Alot of people are going to throw up junk answers, saying that they can bench like 225 or even into the 300's at 12. Don't listen to them. People also say they bench like 125 to 135, which can be accurate for a 12 year old, but most of them are huge, which again goes back to the weight thing...

A healthy bench press would be to bench your own weight. That is the primary goal. Most 12 year olds can't do that. I'm 12, 5'2, and I weigh in at 85 lbs. I lift six days a week (bench press on 3 days) mostly because I'm a wrestler. I max out 95-100 but I can throw up 95 a good 2, maybe 3 times. I struggle alot with 100 though. Most of my friends can only get 60, maybe 65. I'd say of my usual group of friends, the only other guy benching near me, is my friend who maxes out at 85 or 90. Only he really works out though. He weighs 105. So I'd say I'm an above average lifter just because I can get 10-15 pounds up from my weight. An average 12 year old probably won't bench his weight from the get go, it'll take some working out, but if I had to guess an average, I'd say that 70-80 should be for those who weigh under a 100. Just my opinion though

So let me go over some facts here your one rep max should be 80% to 150% of your weight human beings physiology is not designed to lift your own weight it will cause your joints especially your elbows and knees to break down you should do 50% of your max

May I be so inclined us to continue health regulations state that you should always have a spotter who is capable of assuming all of the weight your benching more important you as a prepubescent child should not be doing high intensity strength exercises

So let me clarify some thing age has nothing to do with it if you are 14 or older it’s all about height to weight ratio and muscle to fat ratio The reason I say you should be able to lift 75% of your weight i the human being is 64-80% muscle typically

I'm 12 (5'8/ 145Ibs and bench 150 for one rep. But I would say I'm an advanced lifter. If you can bench around your body weight you are pretty strong. Also your diet and recovery will increase how much weight you put on your bar.

I am currently 12 years old, 5'7 and I weigh 145 pounds. I workout 6 days a week. I max out at 160-165 Ibs. If you want to be able to bench press more I would advise to start off doing different variations of push ups until you can lift the bar. Once you can lift the bar then perform bench press every other day and you'll see results. Also make sure to consume a lot of protein, carbs and healthy fats. This will help you get bigger and appear more "buff". Remember recovery is very important so I would recommend rolling out, stretching, saunas and massages. Never limit yourself and when you max always have a spotter in case you cant lift the bar. Have a good evening my fellow Gym Rats.

I was twelve didn't go to the gym weighed 90pounds and could benchpress a bit more than 100pounds without too much of a struggle so I think that the average would be at least 10pounds more than bodyweight but yet again it can also depend on height and other factors

In my opinion I think 65-125 are about average but a lot of the bigger people can bench a lot higher like up to 165

Well it all depends on the weight and hight at that age. A good example is me and my dad. When he was 12 he was 6'3 and 282 pounds and his bench was 265 in which is unbelievable for his age but for his size its actually sloppy im in 8th grade now and im 6'4 1/2 and im 302 lbs l. My max is 320 which is exotic for my age but ok for my size. Now the avarage 12 year old isnt NEARLY as big or tall as me and my family was but i would say that an untrained 95 pounds 12 year old boy could bench about 70. And if he is trained i would say 100. Ur raw natural strength as a child is completely based off ur size unless he or she has major experience with lifting
