I think it’s around 50-55% based on some stuff I read in one of Waterbury’s threads.

A few different reasons, but apparently you already have your mind made up.

To the original poster: 27RM is about 50-55% of your 1RM, depending on your endurance level.

27 RM is not a very good indicator of anything. Anything over a 10 RM and you’re not really going to be accurate.

I personaly think that anything over 8 reps starts to blur your %'s.
