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

    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

    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

    What the hell does this even mean?

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

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