    150 lbs benching 250 is excellent. On the bench it helps if you have shorter arms and broad shoulders.

    What does a boxer get from benching one rep max? There is no exercise useful for a boxer when going for a one rep max.

    He tried to bounce it, too, and still failed. Still, it's okay for a skinny little guy.

    Even with a failed attempt it's still pretty good for his weight.

    This doesn't prove anything other than he can't make that lift. Out of the major compound lifts, the bench press is among the worst barometers of overall strength. When you are boxing, are you lying flat on your back and pressing up only?

    Actually, looking at a lot of Russians musculature, I'd bet bench press would be among the worst of their lifts. Look at Kovalev, bet he can't bench for ****. But he used to be able to BANG.

    A big bench press does not mean you have strength. An exercise where you lie flat on your back and lower a weight to your chest and lift it up is extremely meaningless in the real world.

    KO 100%

    His buddy Arslanbek's bench press PB is only 52kg but he can punch holes in castle walls

    Anyone who thinks a 350 pound bench press is impossible for someone 154-175 is dumb as hell. In my early 20s at 160 I was putting up 315 at 5 reps with a pretty run of the mill workout regimen. There was a guy 5'4 150 pounds on my highschool wrestling team that I witnessed bench 405 for 3 reps.

    Funny thing is that Arslanbek can't defeat Artur in armwrestling:

    :lol: Punching power doesn't come about by bench pressing .. it's boxing not mr Olympia.. Kovalev looks about as strong as Jim Carrey LOL.. yet look what he did to Yarde & Pascal
