  4. Now you should try for your 1 rep max.. Maybe you could get 350??

  5. Nice job. 315 is a big milestone on bench. Next up 365

  6. Thanks guys. I never did 1 rep max but curious to see what I could get

  7. Well done sir...

    315x4x(.0333)+315 = a 357 1rm

    That is definitely not 100% accurate.

    No 1rm calculation is 100% accurate. This calculation is an accepted one in the strength community

    No, and neither is Wendler who uses it to calculate 1RM in the 5/3/1. I've fount it to be accurate +/- 5#.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    I agree. I think 315 was my favorite mark that I have hit. 405 didn't even feel as good when I did it....was so proud of those "3 plates" !

    So in powerlifting competitions they shouldn't have to max out anymore... Just hit something for 5 or 6 reps and just calculate from there. I mean there's definitely no variables.. It's 100% accurate...It's fool proof

  18. I think everyone is different and there's a lot of variables with this and no 2 people are the same when it comes to reps. IMO

    Is that really what you took from my post?

    Reading comprehension, how does it work?

    What the hell does this even mean?

    And what the hell does it have to do with a 1rm calculation?

    My Bad..I thought you were saying that it IS 100% accurate..

  22. 315 for 4 reps is impressive man. Keep up the good work.

  23. Congrats on the lift. I have used the same formula napalm presented for years and has always been accurate within a few pounds.

  24. Congrats brother. a good hurtle to make it over!
