    My best ever was 345 when I weighed 172. I'm about 185 now but my shoulder will not take what it used to.

    I maxed at 210 (1 rep), and i weighed 150 in 11th grade. I'm about 160 now and i haven't been to the gym in about 8-10 months. Most i ever weighed was 183 almost 2 years ago, but i dont hit the gym like i used to.

    i bench your mom!

    haha, just kidding. actually, i have no idea how much i bench, because i don't have a bench to do it...i just work with the hand dumbbells. my oldest brother does reps with 365 i believe.

    I'm a mechanic and we worry more about max torque with out a breaker bar. but most ever was 315, not in good shape anymore so I figure I'm down to 245.

    yeah, short arms will make things easier. The bar has less mechanical advantage on a short arm.

    ever watch the World Strongest Man competitions? you can usually tell which trials are for short guys, and which are for tall guys.

    the 5 fingers...yeah, that's made for tall guys.
