The tests I've done so far have been on a DVR machine...Think Jack Lalane and his real old school bench press machine!

I am sure every department is different, but for the bench press test what weight do you use. I heard it's usually your body weight, is this true?

USMC, I have seen some that go by age and weight. So If you are in a younger age group, it may be slightly over your body weight, like 1.25x body weight. As the age goes up, the press goes down to like .80 x body weight or 80% of your body weight. These are not exact figures and it does vary with different depts. Most have a margin of of a few pounds, so you can still pass lifting less than the max.
