Two plates. It’s a milestone for every young lifter. We all remember that feeling of pushing up 225lbs for the first time. Some of us probably even remember the gym where it happened.

It’s safe to say a 225lbs bench press is a big deal. However, as we advance in our lifting career, the expectations rise. Eventually, it becomes unacceptable to just hit 225lbs for a rep or two. The next goal is to rep it with ease.

The NFL made the 225lb bench press test for max reps famous. Every year the NFL hosts a scouting combine in Indianapolis where college players go and participate in a wide range of physical events. The combine gives teams a chance to see the college prospects display their athletic abilities in a controlled environment. In addition to the bench press, the other events are the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump, and various shuttle runs.

But, what makes the 225lbs bench test unique, is it gives the average gym member the rare chance to compare themselves to the best athletes in the world. It allows us average folk to see how we stack up against the freaks we watch play on Sundays.
