Ok, so my goal for benchpress is 300 pounds 1 rep max. I mainly want to achieve this because I was in powerlifting in highschool and I thought that would always be great to achieve… anyhow. My buddy said that if you can get 225 ten times, then your 1 rep max is most likely right at or close to 300 pounds.
To me this sounds reasonable… but I’m not entirely sure. I can get 225 about 8 times with no help, and my 1 rep max is 275.
Seems like I will be able to get 10 reps of 225 long before I get a 300 1 rep max tho.
