    Corporate Challenge for my company is coming up, and one of the events is bench press (1RM). Now, its in relation to ones bodyweight, so keep that in mind.

    I need a way to increase my bench numbers to win this competition. I checked my max today, and I am at 225 for 3, 2451RM, so im still pretty weak. Im about 175lbs, and since the lower the bodyweight the higher the advantage I have in this competition, I would like to stay about the same weight.

    My bench hasnt really been going up. Ive done 5x5s, and I can get those to go up, but my 1RM is still the same. Everywhere else is showing gains.

    Can someone at least point me in the right direction? Competition is in 3 months.


    BTW, the winning bench for last year was 540. For my bodyweight, I would have to bench 450 to win this year. :eek4:

    I couldnt beleive it when I read it. Apparently he brought his bench shirt, and even his team-mates were thinking hes juicing:squint: . And this guy is a software engineer?

    Third place was 320. that means I would have to lift 268 to beat him and place second.

    Edit - other events are dumb. Walking, tug-o-war, etc. They do have a 400m dash, though....

    Still.....450+ on bench is nothing to scoff at. Regardless of how out of place he looked.

    If the company I worked for did it I'd bring one, if its not forbid in the rules its fair game.

    I think the only reason its not forbidden is becuase they didnt think anyone would actually do it.:eek3:

    I kinda have some sort of weird respect/disliking thing going towards the guy though. Anyone that brings a bench shirt to a corporate challenge is ok in my book. I just wish I didnt have to go against him.

    I work for Cerner Corp, but the dude that brought the pain in the bench compeition worked for a competing company.

    The highest rated dude at our company did like...325. We have one guy that could probably bench a fucking Hummer, but he weighs so much it would lower his score ALOT and he wouldnt win.
