I know that the only way to improve 1 RM is the Maximum Effort method. I'm not sure about a few things:
-How many sets are recommended on Max Effort Squat day ? Are 3 to 5 sets okay?
-How many times a week should I have a Max Effort Squat Workout? If I have Max Effort Squat Day a few times a week (1 - 2), what should I do on my other workout days (when I'm not resting), considering I have never done heavy squats before?
