What percent of men are able to do this?

>Run 10km in <45 minutes
>Bench Press 100kg
on the same day. Each of these goals are pretty easy to achieve on its own but I wonder how many can actually do both at once. I started fitness lifting and cardio at the same time and reached these marks at a similar time (taken about 1 year). Most people seem to focus more on one or the other.

    The easiest way to achieve this would be to be a washed college athlete who trains lifting for a little while.

    IMO this is the sweet spot. If you can bench 2 plates for reps but can’t even bust out a 24 minute 5k then you’re likely just a fat fuck

    Opposite side, if you can do a 10k in 35 min but can’t bench 135 then congrats on being an athlete but having the same build as someone who spends their day playing world of Warcraft

    Benching 225+ puts you in top 2-3% of men I’d say in terms of strength. Running a 40 min 10k may be too 1-2% in terms of endurance

    Put those together and you are top .5% overall and in good position to pick up and do well in any sport, likely fill out a shirt (medium tho let’s be real), and have low enough bf for aesthetics. Well done lad

      Putting them together would put you more like in top .01-.05% by your numbers.

      OP here my max is 225x1 same height and weight as you and fastest 10km is 44:45. The lifting comes a lot easier to me than some people and running a lot harder. I have worked much harder at running and probably won't be able to run 42 minutes for quite some time. That is my all-out 5km pace right now.

        I should be there before the end of the year I think. I did a half marathon in July and was about to work up to a full marathon in november but I got shin splints and some other injuries so I'm just taking a few weeks off running and focusing on lifting. I might do speed work more often to get my 5k/10k time down and then do a full marathon in the spring instead.
        For lifting, the other day I did 195 3x8. I'm hoping to get my bench 2 plate for reps + a little extra so when I cut I'll still stay above 2 plate.

    For reference OP I can bench 225 (1 rep max tho ) and run a 36-37 min 10k

    If I could, I’d rather gain on the bench and trade off on the cardio, but my body has different ideas. Genetically more predisposed to running

    A few crossfit guys have squatted 500lbs on the same day they ran a 5 minute mile.

    I usually stay at sub 7min miles unless I'm running more than 10. Plus now I bench 225 for 4 reps

    Feel like i would have had a shot at this when i was like 18, but all the sports i have done in the last 10 years didn't require me to run lol.

    7 min mile for 6.5 miles? don't think I've ever been able to do that, even when my single mile was ~6min

    the bench would be easy though

    as a senior in high school I had
    >6:01 mile
    >350 TnG bench
    215lb wrestling state champ. the running was more important tbh
