Unformatted text preview: 25) * desired reps
load = 100 - (100 * 0.025) * 10-RM
load = 75lbs
try a 75lb load (client can probably lift 75lbs for 10 reps) • Conversely: If you know your client can lift 75lbs 10 times, you can predict 1RM:
load = 1-RM (1-RM * 0.025) * desired reps
solve for 1-RM
1-RM = load lifted/(1-(0.025 * number of reps completed))
therefore, 1-RM = 100lbs Muscular endurance:

TEST THE number of reps
FOR A given weight THAT CAN BE COMPLETED 1. Clearly define the protocol when you're going to start, when you're going to stop
