Outgrowing my starting max, but not knowing it.
Doing a program based off % of 1RM. Let’s say I did a three set wave of 70%, 75% and 80% of my 1RM. When to know that 70% is now really my 65%.
a. Test maxes every other week on an off day?
b. Simply adding 5lbs each week to the lift until the lift slows down?
c. Recover for a while for last set then try and hit a max?
Back in the days I never had this problem because basically me and my partner would be testing our maxes every workout.
