Enter the bench press weight (lbs) and the body weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bench Press Ratio. 

Bench Press Ratio Formula



  • BPR is the Bench Press Ratio (lbs/lbs)
  • BP is the bench press weight (lbs)
  • BW is the body weight (lbs)

To calculate Bench Press Ratio, divide the max bench press weight by the body weight.

How to Calculate Bench Press Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bench Press Ratio.

  1. First, determine the bench press weight (lbs). 
  2. Next, determine the body weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BPR = BP / BW.
  4. Finally, calculate the Bench Press Ratio.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bench press weight (lbs) = 500

body weight (lbs) = 200
