    Web site that calculates your max bench?

    Anyone know what that web address is that can calculate your max ench by saying what you rep?

    doesnt seem like it would accurate even if there was one. you cant tell a max just by the rep of a certain weight. different muscle fibers are involved with endurance and 1tr.

    Yea i find it hard to believe that it would be accurate. I cant rep much but my one rep max is like 65lbs heaver. My endurance blows, but 1-3reps i can clean up

    The lower the reps, the more accurate it is. I can do 275 for 10 reps, it says my max is 367. But on my last set last week i only did 300x4, and then it says my max is 327, which i think is probably closer, but who knows, i am pretty fatigued at my last set.

    I have a KNPE book for my personal fitness class that has a two page chart of what you can do for 10reps, 7, and 1RM. What do you do for either of those?
