This is how you find your max without maxing

If you want to find your max without maxing out this is a good way to do that.Next, 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.

Re: This is how you find your max without maxing

Thsis very similar to wat I use......you need to remove 0.03 from each number to get what I ue. It has always been accurate within a couple of pounds.
