    Great read. So many people should be reading this. It's not all about 1RMs, folks.

    For people powerlifting like myself, it's kind of about the 1RM ;)

    This obviously isn't relevant to accruing maximum size, but to say people don't care what you lift in a gym is codswallop. Lots of people with different goals train at the same gym, and there will be lifters who will judge you by your strength - not that you should care what they think.

    This needs to be herd more often. Wish I would have listened to both my body and my experience before a listened to those "heavy duty" fans.
    Now I got a torn pec from going to heavy. My neuromuscular system was capable of moving the weight but my body wasn't.

    I think the message might be that even if your ultimate goal is 1RM strength, training the lower weight/higher rep range is still essential to build the foundation for the maximal efforts.
