    Yeh.. I can only do 120lbs about 15 times...

    Yes, I'm probably really weak compared to other GBAtempers. Let's just see how I fare. [​IMG]

    Do you have something called "Physical Education" or a Gym at your school?

    Ah ok..

    I just saw your profile and I see your only 14. [​IMG]

    I guess it's ok if you haven't bench pressed before.

    I can do 5,000 bench press units and a field goal.

    I actually have no idea how much I can bench. I haven't tried it since highschool, which was 8 years ago. I think I could do 15 reps of about 160 pounds back then, but I've become considerably more doughy since so I bet I'm fairly pitiful at this point.

    Also I remember that one time after benching I could barely bend my arms for a week. It was agony. So I was probably really overdoing it.

    I can do 210lbs. However, I am pretty heavy - 185lbs myself. Most guys that trained with me in the army can do at least 250lbs.
    -However, you are not that bad for a civilian Nero. I've seen guys who couldn't lift my mama's groceries. [​IMG]

    45 + 45 (on each side) = 90 lbs + 45 (the bar) = 135 lbs.

    I do 5 reps of 5 sets. I guess thats good for a 16 year old. And I weight about 140 lbs.

    Quit doing weights a while ago since its my last year of school (big tests now :X)

    Stopped at about 4 sets 10 reps at 60kg including the bar

    EDIT: LOL I'm shit compared to some people here. I weight like 65-70 kgs last time I checked. Exactly 6 foot :X

    40 kg or so 3 times. I'm like Sena from Eyeshield 21... mile is 5:48 tho, so at least I'm above average at something.

    Horribly embarassing, but I blame my fanaticism with being fast on the Sonic games on the Genesis. He was my childhood role model, and I always wanted legs like that. (Lol I am pathetic XD)
    I've been trying to improve my upper body tho, my friend is teaching me jujitsu and I do lift weights and stuff every day... but none of it seems to help...
    I was born weak is the problem.

    second that!

    I can't remember... i never really used the bench press except once or twice, then i feel kindof strange doing it when people watch me....

    i'm probably a little above average considering i'm a reasonably sporty person, but I don't have a big build so not as much as those people.

    Fast stats:
    Female, 23, 5'2, 125-8 lbs.

    So far my best is at 135 for 8 reps. I had a really good day then, so I wonder what my actual "max" is since that should've been it...
