How much you should bench press depends on your experience as well as a host of other factors. Much more information would be needed such as your height compared to your weight, your age, your experience lifting. Are you wishing to be a competitive lifter, such as a powerlifter?

If you are 6'6" and 200 lbs with little lifting experience, you cannot expect to compete with someone who is 5'6" and 200 lbs with ten years of lifting experience.

I noticed more gains when I started focusing on my own performance and not competing with everyone else in the gym. Come up with your own goals and focus on accomplishing those goals.

If your a guy then you should bench up to 145 & if your a girl you should bench up to 95 or more. However, that generalization really depends on your height and body type. If you are tall or overweight, then you will press less than someone who is shorter or stockier, respectively.

How much should you be able to bench press?

you should be at least able to bench your own weight but if you can't then you are pretty weak my bench press is 100 pounds max at a body weight of 96 pounds but keep your self at a pace you can do you dont want to hurt youself. -- Everyones bench press max is different. I weigh 130pounds, my 5 sets of 5 is with 130 pounds and my max is 170pounds. 30-40pounds above your 5 by 5 max is a pretty good guesstimate of your one rep max if you are around my weight. i weigh 139 and can do 190
