If you want to know your one rep max 1RM

What is Your One Rep Max?

Most bodybuilders and and powerlifters are asked wht their one rep max is but often do not know themselves. Here is a quick and easy way to determine you one rep max for any given lift for reps up to 10. For lifts not listed use the same multiplier as you would for bench press.
Example: person benched 225 for 6 reps.
225 X 1.18 = 265 1RM
plus or minus 5 pounds this individuals one rep max would be 265lbs

Sorry but you have to look way down for the table. As you can see I need to spend less time in the gym and more time learing how to format posts.
