Actually, max lifts don't really take much out of me. I found out a couple years ago that psyching myself up before a big lift didn't help me lift any more weight, and just tires me out. Those adrenals can only take so much. As you'll see in all of my videos, I don't do anything differently wether I'm testing my max or doing a standard set of 5. I'd rather think through my setup and form checklists than scream and jump around.
That's why I often set rep PR's right after I get new 1rm's. My adrenals aren't tired, but my CNS is primed.
I appreciate the positive comments. I feel good about my form, and I'm pretty happy with what I see in the videos.
