Testing your 1 Rep Max (1RM)

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be testing our 1 RM in various lifts. If you are unable to make the class to test your max, take time to test it on your own. We will be using these 1 RM numbers to lift a percentage of these weights in order to improve our overall strength.

  • After a full warm-up of the specific body part, start to load the bar for the particular movement

  • As you build in weight, think warm-up sets of 5-5-3-3 before loading into sets of 1. Each warm-up set should build in weight working to a near max weight where you will transition to 1 rep sets.

  • As the weights get close to your max or what FEELS like your max, give yourself 3 attempts from there to find your max. Attempting many more than 3 sets becomes stressful to the body and can become counterproductive. Remember, we are finding these current 1 Rep Max weights to apply to a percentage in the future in order to improve our overall strength
