    225 bench test

    I use to love doing this once a week when I was lifting heavy.
    On my light chest day all I did was one or two sets of 225 to failure. It seemed to really help my bench go up.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    I believe I hit 225x6 before I hurt my shoulder. Hopefully I will surpass that with ease this time around.

    I was never able to do it more than 20 times. Don't even try now.
    Alot of pro football teams use this as a guide of strength when trying out for a team.
