    So you can curl more than you press?

    And there's no average weight anybody can lift. Its just not a question to be answered lol.

    What are you currently pressing?

    Bicep curl and bench press are so completely different, that there's really no comparing numbers there.

    I have a 16 year old student who bench presses 95 lbs while I have another that hits 330 for 3.

    It sounds like your triceps, pecs and/or shoulder stabilizer muscles are weaker than your biceps.

    As for how much a 16yo can bench depends on how much they work on it. There are lots of high school football players benching 350 and 400 pounds, but they work hard at it and are relatively big.

    I second that. but neither of those are nearly as nurturing to the ego.

    ..

    I am 16, 17 in a few days mine. But i can lift 352 lbs for 3. I live in England and play rugby a lot. i find this helps a lot to keep you strong. also i have a great passion for weight lifting. My advise is to eat and eat more. Protein shakes also help a lot. I try to get 3 a day to maximize the effect. I am also out of school so i train twice a day.

    Nice table, i reckon thats a rough guide for the MINIMUM one should be at for their weight/training stage.

    I class myself as an intermediate trainee and i'm just above what that table states and i class myself as a poor bencher.
