Bench 155 x 4! (70kgs x 4 reps)

I want to test my max,165,but I cannot...


If you are an ectomorph, you are probably a hardgainer and made highly of type 1 muscle fibers. Usually with highly type 1 muscle groups, those 1RM charts underestimate your max. For most people, they underestimate legs, since there are lots of type 1 muscle fibers in them for postural reasons and sustained low intensity walking activity and such. I am highly type 2 everywhere, and I usually get 4-6 reps at 80% of my 1RM, so they usually overestimate mine.

All that said, if someone estimates their max with 5 reps or less, does anyone mind if we put up an estimated 1RM? I've been meaning to ask that and if people are giving me estimates anyway.

The tables works well for me.
Is possible,
I have the mind influenced by tables,and then also the performance :)

I have this 70%max 9 - 10
80% 6 reps
90 % 3-4

In chin ups,much time ago, I increased a lot the power,improved the execution but NEVER I did more than 8 reps.

My triceps hate low reps.I dont feel them work.

You're welcome!

Ok, I have to brag that I got a new best lift today (which rarely happens). I DB shoulder pressed 100lbers for 5 reps! Marcella had her hands on my elbows the whole time, but it's the most I've ever tried and she weighs 115 so I was still doing all the work :).
