If you lift weights regularly at some point you are probably asked, "how much can you bench?" The only times that a strong bench press really matters is in strength testing for a football team (no matter what level) or in the sport of Powerlifting which tests competitors to see how much weight they can lift in the bench press, deadlift and squat. Let's face it, people who can lift lift a ton of weight will always be impressive and attract attention in the gym. Be honest, how often have you seen someone moving a bar with 6 or 8 plates and thought, "jeez, I need to get a little stronger."
