How many reps should you bench press the bar in order to bench 225 lbs 20 times?

    no amount of bench pressing an empty bar is ever going to be the equivalent of a single rep at 225.

    It would just be a guess. There's so many variables it would be impossible to give an accurate number. 

    20x225 would equate to a max of 364. 

    I remember when I was playing I could bench about 400 and the 45 pound bar seemed so light that it didn't seem like there was a limit to the number of times I could lift it. I started warming up with 135 and even that started feeling ridiculously light. 

    I'll give a WAG and say maybe 1000? It might be better to use pushups as a benchmark.
