    high reps don't really translate well into calculating a single.

    if u did it alot u prolly could do more.
    when i maxed at 405 i could only do 365 x 6
    now maxing at 435 i can only do like 365 x 4 :wtf:
    when i first started 225 for reps i could only do 20. now i can do 25

    theres really no correlation. You need to train for reps and you need to train for heavy singles and triples.

    thats definatly bs.u can usally go 80-100 reps of 15% of your max rep. and the world record (with shirt) is 1036 max. he is a full grown professional powerlifter and if he was to do 80-100 reps he would do it with around 155. theres no way that guy could shatter what the worlds best could do when he was only in hs.
