Bench Press Calculator: Calculate Your 1 REP MAX (1RM)

The Muscle & Strength bench press calculator can be used to work out your approximate 1 REP MAX bench press. These figures are not 100% accurate, but it serves as a good guide!

Bench Press Calculator

Weight:
Number of Reps:
 

Instructions:

This bench press calculator can be used to work out your approximate 1 REP MAX bench press. The way this bench calculator works is it takes the amount of weight you can bench for a certain number of reps and uses a formula to calculate your approximate 1 REP MAX. Obviously, these figures are not 100% accurate.

To use the bench press calculator simply enter the weight in the first box provided and select the number of reps from the drop down box. For example, if I benched 225lbs for 10 reps I would enter 225 and select 10 reps. The bench press calculator works in both pounds and kilograms.

Your squat should be wayyy higher my weight is 150 and my squat is 275. On your squat make sure you are going up on your heels and your feet are around should width apart. Practice smaller weights just for form.

Yes, dont test legs and tell people you deadlift but dont actually deadlift. As for bench eat lots of apple sauce, it should boost it

I was wondering if anyone has a good brand for elbow sleeves. Every time I bench heavy, my left elbow hurts. I’d really appreciate recommendations :)

They're kinda expensive but saved me from elbow tendonitis. Get them tight.

I can do 23 reps on 225 rep test.
I then do 3 more sets; usually around 20, 15, and 12 reps. I can also do 200 pushups at one time. I am 18 yo, 5'11" and 185. I think it's genetic... my Dad is 40 and can still do 18, 15, 12, 10 on 225 RT at 5'11" and 200.

I"m interested to see how accurate this is. I did 365 x 8, but the 8th was assisted by my spotter, so 365 x 7 correlates to 451, the most i've done was 425lbs. I'm in a competition on Tuesday, and if I successfully do 425 again on my first attempt, I plan on trying 445 for my 2nd attempt and will adjust from there for my final attempt.

It varies some calculators have different formulas this one shoots out a bit higher numbers than others I think maybe bc it’s specially for bench only maybe? Personally with bench I would have trouble hitting the numbers calculators said I could maybe bc didn’t lift low heavy reps enough not sure. But it would underestimate my squats on heavier weights like 450x5 475x4. I did find certain calculators accurate when I was dooing 315-365 x 8-10 reps but it’s different I think for everyone and every lift

I wouldn’t base my competition weights off this. First attempt should be something you can do for three or four 2 can be something closer to max but you don’t wanna miss your first

That’s great man your very strong keep up the lifting remember it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon so don’t destroy yourself. Find a solid powerlifting plan if that’s what your interested in and stick to it they have Sheiko app if u would wanna pay or a million free programs u can follow most important just be consistent you’ll be super strong in a few years

Funny how some (a lot) people here are inflating their numbers... I wonder why? Nobody knows you here so putting cool and high numbers has no effect.

Divide your best for 10 by 0.75. That will get you a pretty good idea of your max. If you don’t do low reps with heavier weight these models are less accurate.

Yeah for your height and that amount of time u have plenty of time to keep gaining mass naturally strong to bench over your body weight even with a lil bodyfat just focus on your diet alot eat clean no sugar and starch and loads of salt .. Lean protein and drink shakes and get some supplements

According to this thing
Squat -638 (gym max 615 6 months ago)
Bench-435 (gym max 415 8 months ago)
Didn't calculate my DL as I only single is 600
I weigh 175 trying to lower my reps to prime myself to being able to actually hit those numbers pretty soon (in the next 6 weeks). I would say these numbers while not 100% accurate are a good way to check if you are going in the right direction between setting maxes.
