define "consecutive".
(no, I die after 3 or 4, I count TOTALS without dying in one gym visit, okay...) and the 65 in.clude the weight of the bar.

are you telling me I'm a wimp? I know! there used to hang this chart at the gym, with my weight I'd need to be able to bench press 80-85kg to be good. I'll never get to that level.

so this calculator says that my 1-rep-max is 71 kg then. I don't really feel like trying out what my max is, I suspect I will hurt myself.
