I've never tried for a 1 rep all out max effort before.

So, how would you go about doing that? Pyramid up? If so, at what weight would you start after warming up, 70%, 80% for how many reps? Or just have at it and keep hitting singles until you burst? 5 min rest in between?

How would you prepare for it? Just do it like a contest all three in one day over a few hours, and see what happens, or maybe space out max efforts once a week for each lift?

This has me curious. I want to join this club sometime soon, and I'm sure I will, but I also wonder if I should be finding my baseline 1 rep max for the big three so that I know how my training is going, what is working, not working, etc.
