Barbell Bent Press 135 lbs. x 5 reps

In Strongman Mastery by Logan ChristopherLeave a Comment

A new record of bent pressing a 135 lb. barbell for five reps in a single set.

My top amount is 165 lbs. right now though I feel like I’ll hit 175 any day now.

The bent press is most commonly done for just single reps. However, I’ve found that doing repetitions in a single set is helping me to get stronger in the exercise.

That being said, five reps is as high as I plan to go. That is certainly high rep for this exercise.
