Buying a weight bench - question on limit

When buying a workout bench - is the weight limit just for the person using the bench or does that include the amount of weight you are lifting as well ?

I assume it is for both but am not sure, maybe it depends on how the listing is worded ?

I have a bench in mind and it lists the weight capacity as 150 KG. if that is just for the user then i am fine but if that includes the weight as well then i would be over that when benching.

i have seen another ad list the maximum user weight as 480 lbs so again not sure if that is for both or not.

It’s for both, you and the weight you’re pressing.
