Under WBB1, how do I determine how much weight to lift? I've heard 75% 1rep Max, does that sound about right?
All you need to do is stick to the rep range. So for Flat Barbell Bench Press it says do 2 sets of 6-8 reps. So all you need to do is find the weight to you can flat bench 6-8 times (you can choose if you do 6 or 8) and that is the right weight.
Hope this helps.
Put it this way dude.
If you can bench 185 X 8 for both sets, its time to up the weight.
If you can do 225X8 then 225X5 you need to stick with it until you get within the rep range of 6-8. Every rep counts. Don't cut corners, that is the path to the dark side of bench warmers and chest bouncers..
Squat = Not enough
DL = Not enough
Bench = Not enough
Big 3 = Not enough
its simple, if you finish a set easily then up the weight, if you dont finish all your reps then lower it. So its kind of a guess and check type thing.
