1 RM

1 RM calculatorThe 1 RM calculator allows you to calculate your maximal strength in a given exercise based on the number of repetitions you can can perform with a submaximal load.

1. Pick a weight you can maximally lift 1-12 times.
2. Lift the weight for as many repetitions possible and enter weight and number of repetitions.
3. The top panel shows the estimated RM-values. 1 RM is the maximal weight you can lift 1 time. 2 RM is the maximal weight that can be lifted 2 times, etc.

1 RM
2 RM
3 RM
4 RM
5 RM
6 RM
8 RM
10 RM
12 RM
15 RM


One RM is defined as the maximal weight that can be liftet once with good form in a given exercise. Two RM is the maximal weight that can be lifted two times etc. By knowing the maximal weight you can lift a given number of repetitions, you can estimate the maximal weights that can be lifted any other number of repetitons (within limits).

This in turn will accelerate your fat loss creating that toned, curvy look.

Most find the infection appears to go away, only to return in the short-term with a different
type of problem, a vaginal yeast infection. A quick rinse in cold water
is actually quite invigorating and you'll be saving on your hot water

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

In many cases, you might be ordering directly from the wholesaler, or
you might simply be in a place where there is significantly lower overhead on a product if
it does not need to be shipped. However, for the most part, she is by the very
nature of the society that she lives in forced to conform
to at least some sort of stereo-typical gender expectation. The convenience that one can get through the online market has been a motivating factor of the current consumer behavior.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting
my own weblog and was wondering what all is required
to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not
100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Quoting B@HCPhys-ed:
The problem with the 1 rep calculator is that it tries to equate strength (higher reps) with power (1 RM). These are 2 completely different fitness components. An individual can be strong but not powerful and vice versa. The formula for this calculator is rarely accurate. But.... if you want a safe way of determining how much you can't bench, squat or power clean it works very well!

As a competitive international lifter of 15 years I have found this to be pretty good as a rough guide. you obvioulsy don't lift....

the calculator is a bit iffy. Of course it can't really be a hundred percent correct but when you increase the reps, it get's ridicolous.
For example doing 12 repetitions on 70 kg, is not = 1RM 100.8

Think it is more safe if you do low rep excercises for maxium strength (like bench 3x4 etc, or stronglift 5x5)

But anyway, a great upload! I'm always cheering when I type in the reps and weight and see that my max has increased:-)

Stephen:it does not say "pick up a weight", it says"pick a wieght".Any exercise goes. if you can, say, lift 200 lbs. 4 times, put those numbers into the calculatorand it will tell you how many lbs. you can lift 1,2,3,5times and so on.

#2 Stephen Liversedge 2009-02-28 23:10
I don't fully understand this test. I'm a cricket coach and I am using these tests on my (currently) woefully unfit cricketers.
When you say pick up a weight what exactly do you mean? Pick it up from the floor and shoulder press it? And should I have to change the weight depending on the existing strength of the cricketer?
I only want a minimum of equipment hence bleep test, cooper run, step test, pressup test, and body composition tests all working well.
Fantastic website by the way.
