I know this is going to sound simple…but I did a search and didn’t find it. How do I find (other than sheer experimentation) my different rep maxes?
I know my one rep max…but the program I just started from this site (Total Body Training by Chad Waterbury) switches reps and set totals a LOT.
So while I know my five rep max, I don’t know my 8 rep max, or 12, or 18 (!!)…
Now, I know I could do it simply with experimentation, but I’m worried that this program changes so much that for the first few weeks would simply be experimentation (damn, too light, damn – to heavy) and I wouldn’t be achieving results so much as FINDING the correct totals.
So is there any type of formula (generally speaking) that I could work backwards on?
