VIDEO: How Much Can You Really Bench?

Whether they mean to or not, a lot of guys lie about how much they can lift. But what happens when we put those wishful numbers to the test? That’s what we wanted to find out when we set up a hidden weight bench on the streets of New York City and had our Whaddya Bench Babe Ashley Michaelsen ask innocent passersby what they could lift. Then we unveiled the bench and challenged them to belly up to the barbell and prove it. Check out our video below to see how the guys fared.
