    What kind of rep/set/weight (as % of 1RM) do you do to warm up for a max attempt?

    Different every time for me. Different for each "attempt" on what body part.

    Seeing as I don't max anymore...the least I'll do is 3 on anythign other than deads.

    I'll start with a nice 20 rep warm up and stretch out

    then I'll go down to about a good 5 reps with a weight I can do about 10 with. Then I'll stretch some more...then I'll go into a 3 rep with somethign I can get about 6-8 with...then I'll do a nice slow and controlled rep with a weight I can do about 4 or 5 with. Then I'll make the attempt.

    thats for bench of course

    if you were going for a 315 bench, something like:

    barx10
    95x3
    135x3
    185x3
    225x1
    275x1
    315x1
