    Bench Block press to Bench press

    Soo recently I used the 1 block (1.5 inch) and did 205x8.5 paused reps, which is a huuuge pr. I'm wondering if there is a way to estimate my 1 rm on normal bench press?

    Info that may help:
    ▪︎My 1 rm/5 rm at the end of September was 230/205 (touch and go)
    ▪︎current amrap for 185 is 11, amrap for 135 is 25 (touch and go)
    ▪︎slingshot bench 1 rm is 265 from 1 month ago.

    Btw, im 19 not 49 lol. Idk how to change the settings.

    There is no good way to use an accessory lift to estimate a comp lift. Unless of course you have lots of data on yourself from these two lifts and how 8RM compares to 1RM. Basically no, you can't do it. If its a PR, then you can probably bench more than your old comp bench PR.
    Most of my lifting gets posted to Instagram - https://instagram.com/fayerjw/

    Best lifts 628/391/727 - Best Total: 1747

    Not really.
    Using the block or boards help you to be able to overload where your weak.
    This is suppose to help eliminate this weak range and carry over to your full range BP.
    Everyone will experience different results.
    The good thing is overloading will help you get the feel for heavier weight and get some strength in the shoulders and triceps.
    Hopefully you keep a training log and record all your maxes with what ever devise you use.
    You should eventually get a regular BP max if your getting stronger on weaknesses.
