    80kg bench is pretty reasonable.
    Every man should be able to do AT LEAST one rep

    1pl8 or 60lb dumbbells
    If you're serious about working out I'd say 185lbs for benching and 75lbs for dumbbells is the bare minimum for reasonable. Obviously continue to strive for heavier weight and don't get complacent

    I'd say 90% of the male population could rep 2pl8 for 5x reps. The reason most don't is because they're unfamiliar with the motion and don't train.

    With that being said, anything over 2.5pl8 is above average I guess.

      You're a complete idiot if you think 90% of men can bench 2pl8.

        Maybe where your from. Here in Australia most 16-20 year olds peak out at about 3pl8. Most guys in my gym are hitting 2pl8 in their first couple weeks of training.

        Imagine being this delusional, have you even stepped foot in a commercial gym?

        Again, it's very common here. I've seen 14 year olds putting it up for a few reps on the Smith machine.

          weeelllll, I did but I did push ups + variations + weighted before. If you don´t have an athletic background, many guys struggle to hit that weight

          Yeah I can relate to this. Most our men have burly builds and detrained will rep 2pl8 without an issue. I think it's the Americans that struggle with 1pl8 anon.

          Of course 2 pla8 is easy for you southern hemisphere assholes, but up here we have to actually work against gravity.

          so what the fuck is your point, the average guy could bench 4pl8s if he trained like what does that have to do with anything you're so fucking retarded

            No the average man definitely couldn’t bench 405 without roids. OP is asking what a reasonable bench number is. Taking into account people who literally don’t bench for such a question is goddamn retarded. It’s like saying 2 pull-ups is a reasonable amount of pullups because the average American can’t do a single pull-up.

    We talk about 1/2/3/4 for a reason. An adult male of average height and healthy weight is weak unless he can do 2pl8.

      When everyone says 1/2/3/4, is that for a certain amount of reps + sets or does it refer to 1RM?

    Depends on your height and weight. For most people if they can bench their weight 1RM, they are in the 50%tile of strength for the average man.
    If you can bench your weight for reps of 8 you are doing pretty good. 1.5 your weight for reps is top 10% of men. Double your weight is the natty 1 rep max for most men.

    Most untrained men struggle with 40kg at first but quickly are able to do 60kg (1pl8) through linear progression.
    Sometimes they can push linear progression all to way up to 80kg. But usually it takes a bit longer to reach it.
