    Advantages of maxing out, top weight.

    So i decided to take a break from my normal madcow routine. Me and my brother maxed out in all big three, dead, squat, and bench, some thing i havenīt done in 4 months. The resaults were great, i had increased my top weight significantly.
    Anyway iīd like to know what benefits, if any there are in doing a workout like that.

    Thanks!

    More mental than anything else, but if you are training for strength then working out in the 1-5 rep range is beneficial. As you become more advanced some argue that you can also train for hypertrophy with lower rep ranges, which I do believe to be somewhat valid from my own personal experiences.
