    I'm 6'3, 172 lbs..My strength has slowly been dwindling as I've been dieting off my fat for the past few months. I tried flat benching yesterday and got 135 for 6 reps. I'm currently at around 11.75%, and my goal is to hit 7% ripped 8 pack 24/7. That's another 10-12 lbs of fat left to go.

    Way back in high school I maxed out at 240 lbs, 1 rep. Max squats was 355, 3 reps. Like I said this was back in high school when I was all jocked out.

    I haven't done bench in years. In college (about 2 years ago), I benched 255 once. I weighed 190 at the time.

    That's my best.

    I've done 300 lbs twice....never actually tried a full maximum lift on one go...

    I'm making a guess that I could maybe do 240 or so now..I don't hit it as hard as it tears my shoulders up anymore..
