I've always wondered what a bench press was.

all he has to do to do this is be strong enough to lift himself and the boards.


I think it's a bit more than that. He also has to have good balance and enough additional strength to stabilise the load during the lift. This would be considerably more difficult than simply lifting the same weight in a similar way without requiring stabilising it (e.g. a chest press on a machine) or even lifting the same weight in a similar way plus stabilising it but from a supported stationary position (e.g. a bench press with free weights).

I can chest press over my own weight, maybe by as much as the weight of this bench (I don`t know how much they weigh), but I`m almost sure that I couldn`t do this.

edgar, its not "skill." its strength and nothing more. the part in front of him weighs the same as him and the part behind him, so the balance point is at his arms/shoulders. all he has to do to do this is be strong enough to lift himself and the boards.
