You can probably do more then 135 for 10 reps

ricka: ((Weight x Reps) x .0333) + Weight (# used in the beginning of the formula) = 1RM

That's the formula which Wendler uses in his 5/3/1 ebook. It's been the most accurate out of any that I've previously used.

So that calculator must use that formula..because I just did the math using (135x10= 1350 x .0333 = 44.95 + 135 = 179.95 I just did 225 10 days ago, so that formula must not work for everyone.. strange...

This. I never train in higher reps so when I do im not as strong so when I put in a higher reps it throws it off.

Default Wow....WTF was I thinking?..

I just figured out the discrepency. I know I can do more than 135 x 10..I've done 135 x 19 twice.. I kept doing the calculation with only 10 reps, because most 1RM only go to 10, so I figured just use that and it would make the adjustment to reflect the correct 1RM. I should have used a higher weight, as in what my known 10 rep max is and that would have come out closer to my actual 1RM..

Wow... I'm going to try and figure out my 10 rep max, and see what it does come out to.. It will probably be within a pound or two either way, much closer than 179 to 225...

I've used Prilepin's Chart for my clean & press. I thought that it might be interesting since the overhead strict press is known to be quite tough to improve beyond a certain level.

I had been stuck at 180-185 lbs x 1 for about a year (not a newbie, but no advanced lifter either, since my bodyweight is about 260). Here's my PR's timeline:

(Before Prilepin -- using progressive overload, low-rep sets)
November 2014 -- I hit 180
July 2015 -- I nailed 185
December (Dec. 22) 2015 -- I got 190

(Started using Prilepin's Chart in January 2016)
February -- I did 200
March -- I nailed 205
May (May 4) -- PR at 210

In less than five months, I took my 1RM from 190 to 210, which means I improved twice as much than from Nov. 2014 to Dec. 2015.

The biggest difference was the intensity. Most of my sessions called for 70-75% or maybe 80% for something like 5 sets x 3. So here I was knocking fast, forceful reps with nothing more than 155. On occasion, I used 170 or 180 for doubles, and sometimes I did heavier singles, but the bulk of my training involved medium weights. This allowed me to increase frequency; I was pressing about three times a week.

It worked because I improved my speed off the chest, so it became easier for me to generate enough momentum to get past the sticking point. I also improved my efficiency and (on occasion) practiced heavy singles, so I was familiar with negociating that sticking point (all my PR lifts were absolute grinders).

It also worked because I had a true 1RM to base my training on. It's been said time and time again, that using a projected max doesn't work too well. It has to be a genuine max. That approach also helped me move my other lifts up.

I plan to keep using this approach, not because I think it's superior to everything else, but because it doesn't show signs of becoming less producive: two weeks ago, I maxed out and got withing a hair of nailing 215. Thus, I'm still training this way, although the strongman competitions I'm entering during the summer, and the recovery I need between meets, make things a little more hectic. I can't wait to run a longer cycle to set my sights on that 225-press!

Thanks for reading. I hope it's been of some use.
Best regards.
