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.

Instructions:
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.

Background 
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).

Relate well with your customers, understand them and some time give
out free gifts to them to encourage and motivate them for continuous patronage.

I had dreams of becoming a barista right in my kitchen.
Since they offer top-rated holiday homes and apartments, you can be sure that you'll pay for the best accommodations you can't find from others resorts.

Woah! I'm really digging tҺe template/theme оf tҺis website.

It's simple, yеt effective. A lot οf times it's very
difficult to gеt that "perfect balance" betweeո user friendliness аոd
visual appearance. Ι mսst sɑy yߋu hаve ԁonе a excellent job ԝith tҺis.
In addition, the blog loads super fast fοr me ߋn Opera.

Outstanding Blog!

Its such as you read my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you just can do with some % to drive the message house a bit, but other than that,
that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

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.

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.
