“The spirit was good today. 145kg incline bench 5 reps 3 sets,” Bjornson mentions in his Instagram post about the incline bench press. Incline bench presses have their own standards because the amount lifted depends on the individual. An amateur can lift around 50 kg, and an elite can only go up to 145 kg, which Bjornsson did with ease.

One of the big names in the bodybuilding world, Arnold Schwarzenegger, once did a bench press of 525 pounds, which is around 250 kg, which was his own record best. These monstrous weights are pretty common for Mr. Olympias and strongmen. 145 kg was nothing for Bjornson, as he has already bench-pressed more weight than this. His personal records are pretty notable in the Guinness World Records, as back in 2020 he dead lifted 501 kg and broke the four-year record of Eddie Hall.
