Yeah, sure could be Verdasco, everyone knows what Gil did with Andre, i think at 1 point Andre benchpressed around 260 Ibs...thats a lot for a tennisplayer

I guess you could, but id say that they VERY seldom go for MAXIMUM when they benchpress.

I would imagine he is, never seen him shirtless though

08-06-2009, 03:11 AM
probably not roddick, there are pictures of him shirtless out there and his pecs aren't very solid
just from looking at tsongas build i would have to say him. i had a friend who had almost an identical body to tsonga (except he was tongan - hey, sounds like tsonga actually)
he could just show up at the gym randomly and bench more than people who have been there for ages. just a naturally solid build

yeah, some people just have that really stocky/solid body base, and are naturally really strong
id put roddick/nadal after tsonga though, followed by murray
just based on the fact that i can imagine them benching haha (no ****)

Not really, his chest is a relatively strong and firm build for a tennis player, the hair simply hides and takes away from the overall look of definition.

murray is a pu5sy, the only reason he appears to have muscle is because he is thin which makes his muscle look bigger than it actually is.

no, he hasn't, he's not that strong, its just because thin people look more defined than people who have meat of them. He's probably lifting about 80kg, maybe 100kg at best

I voted for Tsonga, because he looks very athletic. Then I found a picture of him kick-boxing without a shirt on, and now I am not that sure.

Think I go with Verdasco then: http://www.whineandcheese.net/whine/shirtless/

If I was to pick some of them for street fight or a pub brawl the ranking would be:
1. Verdasco (Simply strong)
2. Tsonga
3. Nadal (,no?)
4. Murray (Like a little pitt dog when scared into a corner)
5. Del Potro (His hight alone would scare some)
6. Roddick (I think he is too much of a mother's boy to really be brutal in fight with bottles and crow bars)
7. Djokovic
8. Gilles Simon
9. Federer
10. Davydenko (Haha, if I was to count on Davy as my back up, I would pick running instead, same goes for federer)

Effective for what? Weights can build strength far quicker than press ups. Press ups are better for endurance

when doing bench press', the stronger arm takes over and mostly strengthens that specific arm. Press ups also target the whole body too, something bench presses do not do

Regardless of that. Weights build strength quicker. And i was under the impression that the majority of the load is taken by chest when benching with small amount taken by triceps

weight lift to gain bulk and strength, use body weight reps to make it ripped and tight and even the muscle tone out.

While i am no gym instructor think i know what you mean. It maybe your abs stabilising your mid section. I find on the rare occasions i do press ups that if you try to keep your stomach relaxed throughout , you can keep the load on your upper body and feet. Maybe shift position a little

Nadal is naturally muscular, but that's not the same as strength. Rafa doesn't do weights in his training regime. It'll be someone like Murray, who hits the weights a lot. Maybe Tsonga, since he has natural strength.

i have seen people get banned here for creating an account for a friend in the same computer (same IP) and this guy publicly admits he created a new acount to dodge the heat. that is flat out against the rules, mature or not! yet, Mod did nothing so far.:evil:

Actually its very hard to say cause things arent always as they seem when it comes to benchpressing, someone may have a talent for it but not look like it. But we will never know the result anyway so lets speculate away.......Murray looks like hes been working out with some weights the past few years....and then Rafa of course......he looks like one of those people that will bencpress 250 without having touched a bar....then again to bad will never know the truth...........
