This calculator uses 7 different equations that are in use today to calculate a 1RM.
Calculate your estimated One Rep Max based on how many repetitions you performed at a given weight.
Calculate the weight to use on a Rep Max attempt.
I.e. You are progressively working up to a new 5 RM every week, this week you predict you can hit a 5RM that represents a 1RM of 440. Put in 5 reps and 440lbs, and smash ~380lbs for 5
Calculate the number of reps you should be able to get at any given weight, knowing your 1RM. Note: Lombardi and O’Conner et al. are very high estimates for some weights given the nature of their equation. I would not consider these accurate.
Equations Used: Epley, Brzycki, Lander, Lombardi, Mayhew et al. , O’Conner et al. , and Wrathan
I have been getting some questions about what my training will look like for the next 3 months or so. Most of you know that I have been concentrating on trying to increase my weightlifting total and overall strength. Since mid-November I have been concentrating on weightlifting primarily and performing little-to-no cardio (CrossFit) work. Read on for more
Got into the gym super late tonight (about 930) i had a work dinner/bbq. Played some sports and had an all around a good time.
i have not put any priority whatsoever on the olympic lifts this summer and i am suffering because of it. partially due to my hip and due to powerlifting priority. Feels like i have lost some of that explosiveness and cant find a groove on the lifts. need to drill them more often (if not daily in warmup)
