In the process of figuring my 1RM for benchpress, deadlift, etc
while continuing to elevate my strength and (ideally) promote hypertrophy
Slow & Steady, this is a game of inches!
1RM = One Rep Max
Take the max weight you can do 10x
(for me it's 110 lbs)
10 Reps is 75% of 1RM
so I divide 100 by 0.75 to get my 1RM
110/0.75 = 147
my 1RM is 147 lbs, the weight I should be able to bench one time (though won't be able to figure that out until I get a potter lol)
To figure out my Upper-Body Strength Ratio, I divide my 1RM by Body weight
147/157 = 0.94
Which is between Good - Excellent for men 40 - 49 yrs old!
Slow & Steady...
