    that's sounds pretty good.

    I was never a big bench presser, I used to be able do around 350lbs, but I cannot go heavy anymore, it bothers my soulders.

    The general rule i have been told is - if you can bench press your body weight for 3x10 reps then your doing very well !

    As long as you can bench your own weight your doing ok.

    I'm up to 345. There is an old thread somewhere which is 5 pages long I believe.

    I am probably one of only a few who are regularly below 6 sets (for flat benching) but I see he keeps on going, to me that would be way too many sets. Thats a nice 410 max or so though.

    As long as you keep progressing you are doing great!! Don't compare yourself to others...only yourself.
