I’m getting ready to start the Triple Total Training routine, and was wondering if anyone had an idea what I should do to get a starting point for my 1rm. I know the usual pick a weight and perform as many as possible, but more wondering if there is a routine I should do for a couple of weeks before I test for my max.
One way to test for your 1RM is the following:
Perform 5 sets of 5,4,3,2 and 1 rep, progressively adding more weight with each set. This will teach the body to determine its 1RM. When you get to that 1 rep set the body will be ready for it. Hope this helps.
