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 think an average 12 year old who's like 5.0 95-100 lb should at least be able to bench 80-90 lb I'm 5.5 121 lb and I bench 110 lb only one of my freinds beats matches me and he's 5.7 123 lb so the heavier and taller you are the more you should bench

I'm twelve weigh 110lbs and am 5 4 and a female so I'm a bit weaker and I started off benching the 45 pound bar but now after 5 days of an hour a day and pulling 4 muscles I can bench 55 pounds

Which is half my weight and I plan on being able to bench 250 by the time I am 15.

But I will say I am very active and athletic also in gymnastics so I have above normal muscle before I started working out. Also I run daily and garden and bike all sumer but for fun I unicycle and bike or swim a few miles a day. So don't expect to start of with a 45 pound bar.

It all depends. I have good genetics, and at 130-135 LBS body-weight I can bench 155 LBS. It also depends on how you're built. Even though I have long limbs, My bench is more acceptable than my Dead-Lift of 230 lbs. So it depends on multiple factors.

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

A 12-year old should not bench press....It's bad for their body, their are to young.

well, although i would agree that no 12 year old should start powerlifting or bodybuilding until they are physically more mature, i see no problem with careful, supervised, light-weight bench pressing, preferrably with dumbells and a good spotter. When done correctly, there is little danger to a 12 year old to do simple weight training.

anyweres from 250-300lb. im 12 and that's how much i lift

Dude that's bull, your just tryin to look like big stuff, you can't bench 250-300lbs! Dewayne Johnson benches 350lb!

That is bull im a6 foot 215pound 12 year old and i can only bench 150

i agree i just turned 12 im 4 ft 10 and i can only bench 85

you are suppose to bench ypur own weight is the fact if u can ur healthy, less, out of shape, more, stong n healthy. im 12 and weigh at 90 pounds and height at 4' 10". so the person that says that he can bench 155 to 160 it depends on your weight n size. a lil skinny kid should bench your own weight if you bench more then your own weight you healthy and strong. i bench 160 but i benched 178 before but my brothers friend helped me i know that. but i am 90 pounds that is about 70 lbs over n your only suppose to bench your own weight so that's good.

I'm 12 years old, and a lot of people say you should NOT start lifting until you reach 13 years of age... i disagree, any way i can bench press 155 or 160. That is above average, but I'm also a little bigger than average. A skinny 12 year old should be able to bench press about 90-100, average 12 year old 110-130, and bigger 12 year old 140-165.
