    if you are a competitor then you go for it on the day of your meet

    you don't just go max out to impress your buddies, unless you want to injure yourself

    Only at meets if you're competing. I generally use no more than 90% max when training. If you don't compete and still wish to max, I wouldn't try more than maybe two times a year and only with a significant number of rest days before hand.

    I always try to go for PB's every time I step in the gym. Not 1 rep max but whatever repetition range I am using that day.

    Is there a reason for it other than just bragging rights? If not, then no not necessary or even productive at all. You should always be trying to beat your numbers, but that is not 1 rep maxes. Beating numbers within your target rep ranges yes
