Use This Bench Press Chart to Determine Your One Rep Max

Using a bench press chart is an excellent way to estimate your one rep max bench press.

The table below will help you measure your progress against your goals to get stronger and build muscle.

Using a chart is a great way to find your maximum bench press without risking injury during a maximum lift.

The chart below uses the number of reps and the weight you lifted to determine your bench press one rep max and is an excellent alternative when you do not have access to a bench press calculator.

To use the table:

  1. Find the weight you lifted down the left hand side of the table,
  2. Move to the right to the column the coincides to the number repetitions performed.

For example, say that you lifted 95 pounds for 6 repetitions. You would find 95 pounds on the left side of the chart, and count over 6 columns. The chart says that your one rep max bench press is approximately 114 pounds.
