Q:

What is the average male bench press?

A:

The average man can bench press 160 pounds in a single repetition, according to Elite Feet. Adjusted for body weight, the average man can bench press between 100 percent and 149 percent of his body weight in a single repetition, according to Men's Health.

A man whose maximum single-repetition bench press is less than his body weight is considered below average or weak, according to Men's Health.

While the maximum single-repetition bench press is an acceptable means of testing strength, bench pressing less weight for more repetitions is a more effective way to build muscle strength and mass, according to Muscle and Brawn.
