I see, so he shouldn't even know his 1RM, while working, outside of doing it purely for testing/reference purposes.
This raises the question, with regards to program adherence, to the OP again how many times a month, and/or, are you working/testing in the 90100% 1RM range? You had said your pull has been stalled at X amount of weight for one and a half to two months. Essentially, how many times, in that given time period, have you worked at, or tested your pull at X weight? If the frequency is higher then your threshold for systemic recovery then your stall will eventually lead to regression had you continued to work with frequency at such a high percentage of your 1RM. Also your diet plays huge into the equation as stated in my previous post if your not meeting caloric requirements your working backwards as well as dealing a huge hit to your recovery time and efficiency.

Calculator? IMO those are not applicable for a true reference. They are useful for finding percentages, working ranges, etc. but when it comes down to it all it is, is some one size fits all math equation that'll spit out a hypothetical number for you, and I stress hypothetical. Stack the plates and rip that **** off the floor my guess is you'll surprise yourself, no calculator can account for the human component and adrenaline rush of a PR. My purpose for asking that question was to see if you were maxing too often. If you had been, which of course now I know you were not, you most likely were stressing your body past your threshold for recovery and doing more harm then good. Since that isn't the case if it were me, I wouldn't rely on a math equation id want to chalk up and pull some heavy ass weight off the floor.

Corrent Westside trainees are currently having lots of success actually having 2 max upper and 2 max lower days (not to be confused with max effort days) a week every 3 weeks (not sure on the frequency for upper body). Basically, they'll do the typical 2 DE lower day cycles 50/55, then the next cycle they work up to a 2 rep max. Sadly I dont have the info on if they jump immediately to a 2 rep max or first do say 7ish sets of 2 reps at 60, then work up, etc. Just food for thought.

i do westside and i hit 1RM max attemps only every other month. i do have max effort workouts every week. i just hit 35 rep maxes most of the time. i see ME days as a tool to learn to strain through a lift and not just to hit 100% of your max every week.
i also do westside ala block periodization. my blocks are short with my first block being 45 weeks and i only hit 35 rep maxes. the next block which is 2 weeks i aim for a 1 rep max for upper and lower and a 2 rep max for upper and lower, deload for a week then repeat.
there is also the conjugate idea that you cycle through lifts so you rarely do the same ME lift. manyy advocates of westside also recommend doing what you suck at for most of your ME work. this is going to change over a year so you will rarely do the same lifts. one lift may have you doing twice as much as another. that lighter load will help you to strain but wont burn you out near as much as twice the weight.
there are also some westside people that train to get better at competing and not just better at working out. these people will promote things like heavy leg curls before squats. at first it might seem like you couldnt do as much on your squats during the workout, but thats ok as the goal is to get better at your competition squat, not just your training squat. this to me a big reason why people can have a training max and a meet max and how they can be so different.
but all this boils down to what is so great about conjugate/westside training. it is meant to be tailored to what works for you and what helps to bring up your weaknesses.you can call me "ozzie" for short.  07262012, 07:43 PM

Wendler himself recommends Kroc Rows as an assistane exercise for blasting past Deadlift plateaus.

I love (but hate) the extreme soreness in my hand and forearms the day after balls to the wall Kroc rows.
