    A fucking ton. Being 150 lbs helps.

    I think the last time I tried it I did like 25 or 28.

    I dunno, when I was 160 I could do 135 for like 28-35

    roughly a year ago. Haven't done anything like that in awhile.

    EDIT: 25-28 not the other way around

    Never tried, because its probably somewhere over 30 reps. For measure though, my weight is around 213lbs and I am maxing out over 400lbs. I usually warm up with 225 which is higher than my body weight and easily do that 15+ times.

    On dbs I 5x5 the 42kgs and I weigh around 81kgs

    Translation 92lb dbs 5x5 and weight is around 178.

    When going for max reps what would you work up to it with wrt % max and reps? Would one warm up set at around 50%bw x 12 reps be sufficient? Not after fact just opinion/experience.
