*I want to go over how to climb to a 1RM again: You are going to do 2-3 “warm up” sets these are like the bar and maybe 20-30% of what you are shooting for and are of reps from 5-10. Then you start adding weight in an organized and incremental fashion. For example, today’s 1RM deadlift: it has been more than a year since I did a 1RM deadlift, but I have some sense of what I can do within 10kg. I would do the bar 10x, 40kg 5x, 60kg 5x and then 80 for 3x, 100×1, 110×1, 115×1, 120×1, 125×1 and maybe 130×1 depending on how 125 felt and then I would be DONE. I got to my max in 6-8sets after warm up. This 20 set business getting you to your max or the 3 sets where you jump 40kgs at a time is absolutely costing you bigger numbers. Learn how to climb up and stay focused. The lighter weights need no more than 2mins rest. Once you are on your last 1-2 sets then 3-4mins. Let’s get strong!
