Mr. Triceps
RE: What can the average runner bench press? What about you?
You're an idiot. If he typically does sets of 10 for reps is likely he won't be able to bench his equivalent 1rm.

To put it into running terms, hypothetically say a runner runs 3:51 for 1500m. His 5k is 14:50 instead of 14:22. Could he run 14:22 likely if he tailored his training for the 5k. Similar concept, different rep ranges stress different systems.

I usually bench 3-5 reps, my 1rm is pretty spot on with calculators. Why? Because my lifting is focused on power. This is overly simplified but the concept remains.

215 is my 1rm.
