What is the best way to go about testing for my max squat, i want to know this cause to do percents i need to find my max and i have never tried for a 1rm , i would guess somewhere in the mid 400's maybe since i can do sets of 8 with 365 so what should i do.

Best way IMO is to have two fairly strong spotters on either side of you, along with being in the squat rack so if you fail they simply lift it off your back and drop it in the rack.

as justin says. just lift it.

be conserative in your guess. if its easy, next week add more and keeping doing.

I don't believe in estimated maxes. You can either lift it or you can't.
