WWE has asked various superstars what they’re max bench pressing lately. One of those superstars was our very own Roman Reigns.
What is the most you have ever bench pressed?
Four hundred forty-five pounds, but that was on a Monday morning before Raw.
How important is strength training to a WWE Superstar?
It’s pretty crucial, because there’s obviously a standard and if you don’t match up to it, you get destroyed.
Who is the most impressive bench presser you have witnessed in person?
I’m going to take full credit for this: Big E Langston. While we were in developmental, I spotted him on 575 pounds. I’m convinced that he would not have been able to do it without me there.
What’s the best way for a person to increase his max bench press?
Negatives. Focus on negatives and do a lot of dips.
