All I'm saying is if I'm 1rep max is 475 IE I am not currently strong enough to move the weight up any higher and get a rep there is no fucking way I'm gonna be able to put 480 on the bar and rep it our 4 or 5 times.
yeah, i gotta agree here. i lift heavy and i work out 6 days a week. my max is my max. and if my max is 305, then there is no way in fuck that i'm doing 4 sets of anything with 310lbs. i understand you are supposed to push yourself and increase your max. and i do that everyday. but if you are able to throw up four or five sets of 5 reps of 310, then your max is not 305. it's probably much higher.
