Post up your best lift for either your raw or equipped bench, MF.

As of two weeks ago I hit155lbs x 2. I have had 3-4 chest days since then so I am hoping that I will be able to surpass my body weight (160) this week!

Have hit 270 in training only once and that was about a year ago.

Competition best at the moment is 231, bodyweight usually 140-145.

I feel like your weight compared to what I see you lifting in your logs/videos isn't normal. Are you some sort of super human? I am more interested in strength/power over actual physical size. Do you have any tips for a brother?

I don't really count my 264 bench as a valid lift, but it's good to know that I can at least handle that weight on the bar (well almost anyway lol).

385 raw. I don't believe in "lifting shirts/straps/bands", etc.

Working out with 350. I'm a big boy (258 and losing). Lacto-Ovo Veggie for 23 years then (until I was 34) then again 4 months ago (I am now 42). Converting to Vegan SOON!

Update:

I'm now vegan and 248 pounds. I feel even STRONGER, believe it or not.

155. My bench is by far my weakest lift. It's constantly moving up though, which rules.
