        It's not even average for lifters.
        almost all studies done on lifters are self reported.
        if you actually did a study on the average man that walks into a gym for any reason his bench would be way lower.

        that being said 2pl8 is a completely reasonable bench and there is no reason to ever go above it.

            There are four kinds of people at my gym.
            >dude who doesn't look like he workouts, but actually does a lot of lifting all around
            >dude who looks good because teenager and brosplit
            >dude who can't lift anything
            >dude who looks like he lifts a mountain, but is doing lmao 80lb pulley tricep pressdowns all day

            and i mean i'm at the gym every day, for 2 hours. I see all kinds of people. it's insane.
            I see a decent amount of people go over 2pl8, but in comparison to the 80+ people in the gym at any given moment the 2pl8 lifters are very rare.

          there is if you want more strength. i play hockey and the more i can lift the more powerful my checks are. for the average office drone maybe not really necessary; i'd just increase the volume instead if i didn't need strength.

    I'd say this is pretty achievable for a 1RM. Anyone who's trained a few months and has form really nailed down can probably do 2pl8

      This is highly untrue. An average male (XY) above the age of 15 (hormones bro) will easily be able to hit 295 lbs bench for 1rm after a year of lifting.

    I would say that 2pl8 is average amongst guys that consistently lift and go to the gym. 2pl8 is definitely way above average for the entire male population though.

    Learn to read it says lifters. If you don’t bench 2pl8 after a year you are fucking up hard somewhere

    Most guys should by default be able to bench their body weight +- 10lbs or there’s something seriously wrong with you. So if you weigh 150 lbs you should be able bench 150lbs day one. You need 75 more lbs to hit 2pl8, if you can add 2,5lbs per week that’s 30 weeks, just over half a year. If you weigh 135 lbs you need 90 more, that’s still just 36 weeks. And if you weigh less than 135 you’re a girl so then yeah maybe it’ll take way longer/never to get 2pl8

    And in both these scenarios you just have to be able to add 2 lbs a week to hit that goal, that’s not difficult.

    I started lifting 4 weeks ago after living basically my entire life in front of a computer.
    I managed to bench 100kg in the third week. I know this is good but how good is it?

    I started at 100kgs and I must have done it out of sheer ignorance because I've never been able to repeat the amount of reps I did. It's seriously frustrating. I showed up on my first day and thought "well, I'm 130 kilos, and I can do push-ups, so, I dunno, 100kgs?" And I knocked out 10 then 8 then 5 reps. Years later and struggle with 4 sets of 5 reps with 90kgs.

    Every other lift has gotten better, but I've never been able to repeat that first day on the bench.

    If that isn't bullshit and actually is the "average" in their database, it's probably because of sampling bias. You aren't going to see all of the 1pl8 Johnnys and 0.5pl8 zoomers entering their bench into a tracking site.

    Every novice lifters goal is to bench 2pl8, so it doesn't surprise me that they work towards that, the better question is how many actually lift more than that for reps?

    yes, but that's on day 1 at the gym, if you have been lifting longer it should be higher
