I think I'm pretty average, however at 40 my bench pressing days were pretty much over. I was stupidly following what a couple of other guys were doing and caused considerable damage to my shoulders. we were lifting VERY heavy and maxing the bench twice a week. I was rapidly moving up for six months after starting by benching my body weight, soon I was at 315lbs. I acheived my top press at 405 when I was about maybe 35-37 yrs old. shortly after that I was experiencing pain in both shoulders severe enough to stop lifting all upper body. I'm currently only benching a little over my body weight (262) up to 285. take it slow, if your younger then 23, take it real slow wait until you reach your 'mature strength' which is after 23 in most guys. a blown out pect will cause you alot of pain, surgery, and at least a year of rehab.

It Usealy is 80-100 for 1 rep or 40-60 for 10 reps this is a bad, wrong answer. The average 40 year old male bench presses in the mid-to high 100's, and with proper training, should attain a 250 pound bench press.
