OK the plan is to start my program tomorrow.
I am not sure if as a beginner I should be working of off a % of my 1RM, or if I should just start light an work up to a weight that I can only do for 8 reps. Currently I don’t know any of my 1RM for any exercise, nor do I know if it is safe for me to be trying to find out when I have never done a deadlift, or a real squat before.
I have booked a trainer to get me started with proper form. I am wondering should I just utilize the trainer to help me get all my 1RM numbers, and just do a discovery work out to find out where I am actually starting from? Would it be better just to start light and wait maybe for a couple weeks for a little strength before I try for a 1RM so that I can actually get an accurate weight.
Thanks again for any replies.
