I'm coming off a program right now, and before I start the next one I want to spend a week testing my maxes.
I'm gonna test max bench press, max bent-over row, how much I can dip/chin with (won't be 1RM though), max squat, and max deadlift.
I just have a simple question: if I work out 4 times next week, grouping bench press/bent-over row, dip/chin, and have a seperate day for max squat and max deadlift,
AND I warm up thoroughly (first two sets at 50% 1rm, 1-2 sets at 65-70%, rest, then attempt max)...
what can I do after the max reps to get a good workout but not overtrain? I figure that max reps are more taxing than a normal set, and I was just wondering what you guys do when youre maxing on every lift in a week. I want to get the most out of my workouts but I wanna be fresh to start a new program.
