But these aren't my max (1 rep), I do up to 10 reps in 80 kg squat, up to 8 reps in 80 kg deadlifts and up to 6 reps in 60 kg bench. Are you asking for max lifts (sorry if this has already been clarified, have only skimmed briefly through the thread)?
Yeah, we're looking for max lifts here. Although if you haven't done a 1 rep max recently, just list your best set (recent) of heaviest weight at x reps and I'll do the math for you on your theoretical 1RM. I've found found personal experience that the theoretical is actually really close if not spot on what I can lift.
Lol the ones I listed are my best lifts/press thus far. For me though it's more of a psychological thing (getting through the mental barrier), because it's only when I "feel" okay with a certain weight that I progress and lift heavier. The moment I start to doubt, during a set for instance, I just stop. And at other times when I am indifferent to the weight and concentrate on just pressing/lifting I actually get away with 6-8 reps at weights I usually steer away from. So I honestly don't know what my max is, because the truth is I could probably do 15 reps at 80 kg squat, 10-12 reps at 80 kg deadlift and 9 reps at 60 kg bench press. so yeah based on that you're welcome to calculate what my max would be
