This is how to find your max without maxing
you need to know what your best set of five, four, three, two, or one repetition is. Of course the most accurate is the single or 1 RM, but we can get a pretty accurate 1 RM by using your best two, three, four, or five RM. Here is the formula:
Take your best and multiply it by the numbers given.
2 reps - ? x 1.06
3 reps - ? x 1.12
4 reps - ? x 1.15
5 reps - ? x 1.18
This will give an estimate of your best 1 RM without actually having to do it. Now we have a number to work with. Good Luck CDOG.........

I have to agree, that formula seems to be somewhat accurate. A few pounds +/-
