I wonder what type of top end strength you could accomplish if you did a long peaking program. I think it would need to be long in order to transfer your rep strength to 1RM strength. Most guys peak going from 8-10 rep sets to 1 rep, you would need to go from 100+ to 1.

Once I’ve done my Bench press record for charity I’m probably going to start training quite a bit heavier again and start working my ways towards getting really strong on everything on under 10-15 reps which is something I haven’t done in a while.
