I would do 90% of my 1rm and then go for a new record, I usually add 5-10 pounds to the old lift depending on how I felt at 90%.

For example, my current deadlift PR is 500 so the next time I go for a max, I will work up to 90% of that which is 450, and then go for a new record of 510. This way has worked great for me, but I am not sure how everyone else does it.
