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...
