I put 225 for 20 reps and it said Your APPROX 1 rep max bench is 363.6
Haven't maxed out in awhile. I a.ssume my 1 rep max would be in this range.

This calculator wont work for all and is just an estimate for the most part. If you train high rep ranges your 1RM wont go as much as training with low reps.

Say for example you can do 12 reps at 85 % of your 1RM and then start training in the 5 rep range, your 1RM will go up but the amount of reps u can hit at 85% of your new 1RM will decrease and vice versa.

Basically it deals with muscle fibres activated in different rep ranges. There's no calculator that can determine that because the ratio of one muscle fibre type to another varies with people. You gotta test it for yourself.

The calculator is most accurate when the rep is 8.. at 10 it starts getting thrown off.


so the guy who said he put 225 20 times.. that is not an accurate read, try doing something like 295 8 times and see what it gives you

I agree, the calculator is probably most accurate when used in the 8 rep range. I put in 285 for 8 reps and it pretty much gave me the same 1 rep max. As i said before, I haven't maxed out in awhile, but I would a.ssume that the estimate it gave me is pretty much in the range of what I can do.
