What should a 16-year-old, 175-pound person's average bench press be?

Answer

A 16-year-old male, that weighs 175 pounds, has an ideal maximum bench press of 262.5 pounds, according to Men's Health Lists. This calculation is based on 1.5 x 175 pounds. Males are considered to be of sound upper-body strength if they are able to bench press 1.5 times their body weight.

A person can improve his bench press by executing each lift with proper form, which includes lifting in a swift, controlled manner. Men's Health recommends alternating between two workout strategies for maximum efficiency. First, the individual starts by pressing 40 percent of the maximum weight for nine sets of three repetitions each, with 60 seconds of rest between each set. Three days later, they would perform three sets of either flat, inclined or declined presses to muscular failure at their maximum weight.

There is no real standard, but a good goal is to be able to bench your body weight. If you can hit 1.5x, even better. (Height doesn't matter btw, it's just lean weight that's relevant
