There are several factors. A persons body weight and age are a pretty good indicator. This is very general of course. To be a good bench presser its usually a matter of simple practice and technique.

However if you can rep your own weight you are most likely above average. If you can max out at 100lbs past your weight thats also a good indicator your pretty strong.

Ex: 175 body weight x 10

or 275 at one rep max.

For most people a 300 lb. bench press is impressive. Personally, I would say that any bench press that is 1.5 times your bodyweight and higher is impressive. For some, that may be 200 pounds. For others, that may be 400... I would say that for a woman, 150 pounds and up is ALOT, not many women can do that...of course, there are some men who can bench press 2.5 times their bodyweight!

The average male, who doesn't work out, will not be able to bench press even close to his own body weight one time. Most guys I see in the gym these days do not bench press, and I would say even these guys would be lucky to get one rep at body weight... 200 pounds is out of the question for I would say 90% of these guys.. If you can bench 200 plus pounds, you are in the elite.

An average adult male should be able to bench press his own total body weight for at least three to five reps with proper form. Average adult females should be able to bench press about 75% the same way.
