    Closest I've come to that was benching 275lbs. @ 155lbs. Since that I've stopped working out for 10 years and now trying to get back.

    I maxed out at 185lbs x 10 last week. I weigh 162lbs. now. *weaksauce*

    I've benched 420 raw weighing in at 205lbs.
    I believe UncleJohn benched around 500 raw before in the low 200lb range also.
