How Often to Test Max and Adjust TM?

how often do you test max and re adjust TM?

I never do. I just use bar speed to judge how it’s going.


There’s really no need to retest in my opinion. Just add 5 lbs for upper and 10 lbs for lower. If that gets to be too much lower the weights you go up. In the book it also says if you plateau, just adjust your tm down and restart that way


Should be fairly clear following a cycle.

Just keep adding 5/10 pounds and breaking PRs.
