1. ## A touch of math.

Say my working weight is 60% of my 1RM, so I'm training my 60% and adding each week. Say my bench is at 126.25, so it looks roughly like so 126.25 = 0.6. Does that mean my 1RM equals 210lbs?

I'm doing a GVT 10 x 10 routine and made gains on my working weight, I'm just trying to see how it translates into real money.

2. I dnt hink their is any calculation that will give u yoyr 1 rep max you will just have to try it. i think they will be close but it depends on wether uve carb loaded all day and what you have done before and how much sleep uve been getting. the best way to find out is it just try it instead of ure 10x10 or do it before it wont kill ya 1 workout

3. The only way to know for sure is to try it.

4. Your 1RM is whatever you can lift for 1 rep. There are guys who can rep 300 20x on squats and wouldn't have a chance at a 500 1RM. And there are guys who could Max at 500 and would be lucky to hit 8x300. It all depends on the individual.

If you want to know your 1RM, then max out.

5. Formulas are usually all right for predicting a 1 rep max, but they get less and less accurate the more reps you do... Here's one:
