This is a good relief...
I am 14, 5' 8'', weigh 127, and bench 125...
Coach is always stressing being able to bench your own weight, but i could never do it!
There are kids who weigh 150-180, and bench 200+ that i work out with.
I am more cut than them, but was always jealous of thier pure strength.
i started this year benching 95 on a really good day, and now im up to 125. I figured you just have to have the right friend to push you that extra rep...
One a bit stronger than you, so you are always trying to push yourself to match him.
4-6 sets of low reps, heavy weight, and every once and a while, at the end take all the weight off, and see how many times you can do it.
my max was 86 reps last time i "burned out".
But do not over work yourself!
I have a friend who weighs 140, and benches 195, and he is 5'3", i he hasnt grown since 6the th grade...
i think his intensity may have had something to do with his stunted growth?
He just keeps getting bigger, but no taller?O_o
anyway, hope i helped...
Sorry about the rambling...

Guys, you gotta understand that when a ur 14 year old, youre not gonna able to bench around 200lbs at your first try, i mean all those other proffesianl bodybuilders didnt just decide that "hey i wanna start bodybuilding" and pull of like 400lbs on the bench on there first day. Well anyway, im 14 years old myself and i bench 185lbs, It took me time to develop my chest and work my up to the heavier wights, if your looking forward to increasing your bench press, Always do Dumbell Chest Press (along with benchpress), its more challenging and it builds your stabalizers, im not gonna go into  details but heres a vid for u....Hope This Helps

   p.s, I woulod recomend your using a diff type of set/rep system instead of using a dropset

im 14 , 5'9 and wiegh 145...... as of right now i bench 225 x5. it took me close to two years to get to that max out wieght . when i first started my bench press max was 80 x1 . youll get stronger as long as u do a variety of chest workouts and switch up the amount of reps each week. GO UP in wieght after each chest workout secssion and over time youll see ur body changeing . keep it up

Im 14 freshman and I weigh 150 5' 6" and I bench 135 10x then after I find my max and right now it's at 185 or 190
I work on pectoral muscles a lot and arms because in a normal press that's what you work out. Yeah shoulders are involved but when it involves bench pressing just do a lot of flys and skull crushers and pushups

Im 14, in 8th grade and im 5'7 and 160lbs. I recently brought my max up to 250. I learned from my coach that being good at bench press isnt just about having a strong chest. To bring up your max you have to workout the rest of your upper body and then i promise you it will help. It helped me i started working out 2 years ago and i could barely bench the bar(45lbs). But my coach told me to exercise the rest of my body first then it will help. Good luck.

You also need a strong core. If you dont have a strong core you wont be able to support the press.

Im 14 i weigh in at 145 and i put up 210 as my max. Ive been benching for years now but now that i earned my position in highschool football I've been lifting much more. To improve you bench press i believe in a 3 day a week chest workout, along with all upper body. (also throwing in a leg day or two)You also should be using a whey protein gainer to put on more mass and to recover muscle faster.. Stay constant and before you know it you be putting up your body weight+. good luck fellas
