1 rep training rules


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about 1 rep training rules within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: some people say never to train 1 rep maxes, others so you should. I disagree with the first opinion, how are you supposed to know how much you are capable of if you never test your limit? If you are a strongman or powerlifter shouldnít you atleast try this every now and then. Iím not saying everyday, but you should push to your max.

    Do 80% of your max for 4 reps and you know your max, usually hard to tell

    Re: 1 rep training rules

    wouldn't it be wonderful to just go into the gym and do 1 rep max of each exercise and call it a day?

    unfortunately that does not work

    the main issue is our bodies are not robots, and you WILL get injured just doing max outs like a gorilla every time you lift

    save 1 rep maxes for competition day only

    Arguably on ever in competition. You can use a one rep max calculator to get an idea of where you are. I often council AGAINST my lads trying too frequently to do 1RM (like every 3 - 4 weeks if at all).

    Truthfully I donít even worry about maxes anymore. I cared about that stuff when I was young now Iím just worried about tearing the muscle down as much as possible.

    1 rep maxes will do nothing for you but open yourself up to injury for ego reasons.

    4 or 5 reps is as low as I ever go

    I don't do it anymore. For years actually. I just don't feel it is worth the risk of injury.
