I think they weigh 45 pounds at the gym I work out at. But that's probably because the gym isn't really that hardcore and a lot of the Silver Sneakers people can't lift that much.

45lbs per weight is still a lot fullerene. Keep training hard, and you will be somebody! That is what my grandpa used to tell me.

I am not trying to make this discussion off topic. But eventually we need a grandpa appreciation thread!

I've read research that proves that donig an incline press between 15 and 18 degrees of incline can activate approximately 30% more muscle fibers in the chest than a standard bench press. People who really know about training don't do bench presses for this reason. People who care about bragging on the internet make threads like this and people like me just laugh at them.

The bar itself is supposed to be something like 45lbs. I just use that by itself. I never saw the appeal of doing 1 set of 1 rep with something like 150lbs.

I don't bench press. Waste of time for what I'm trying to achieve. I've spoken to numerous top level MMA and boxing trainers as well as Pat Riley, coach of the Miami Heat, and every one of them stated that muscle hypertrophy was counterproductive to athletic performance. I took that to mean that in my own personal workout routines that I could eliminate the bench press, which I was never any good at anyway.
