How Much Should a 15-Year-Old Be Able to Bench Press?

Men’s Health reports that the typical male bench presses up to 1.5 times his own body weight. A 15-year-old who weighs 130 pounds may bench press 195 pounds with practise. Based on his weight of 130 pounds multiplied by 1.5, this computation was made.

According to Men’s Weight, a typical bodybuilder might be able to bench press his own weight. The weightlifter can begin bench pressing 40% of his weight and work up to bench pressing 150% of his weight. Use a spotter when bench pressing, it’s vital. A spotter lowers the possibility of injury and enables the lifter to feel more secure using heavier weights.
