I'm 14, 6ft (180cm), I weigh 147 (67kg)
I've done 10 reps of 183 (83kg) bench press, I hardly ever focus on my max and that is the heaviest weight I've been allowed.

I'm 14 5'11 175lb and can bench 225 pounds can bench mor but this is what I do so I can bench more consitanly . Doing push-ups and lifting heavy things but not too heavy of things really helps get you stronger and build muscle the bigger your pectorals are usually the more you can bench

I mean I'm 14, 6ft tall, 170 lbs and I bench 190 for about 5 reps so it all depends how you're built and how long you've been working out.

---Im 14, 5'11 and weigh 150lbs, my max bench press is 185lbs. I found the benching atleast twice a week helps a lot. For one day do atleast 5 sets with weight that u can do 8 - 10 reps with. For the second day do sets of 1 with your current max. Do about 10 sets. Then do 1 more set with a slightly higher weight. Try this method. It really works well for me.

I'm 14 6'0, I weigh 165lbs (very little fat on me) and I can bench a max of 140lbs (with full range of motion, none of that powerlifting bs). I focus on lifting heavier and getting stronger. I do 5-8 reps of 3-4 sets. Is this a good thing or should I focus on more reps and less weight or carry on like this?

Work on your triceps, and your shoulders. Do pullups for your back. All of these play into your bench press. There is much more to it than just the chest.---Back won't help with anything, the back is for pulling, not pushing. And shoulders will only help with inclined bench, not flat.
