Question can someone give me a good 1RM ballpark idea?

Earlier this week I did a RAW assessment for some military training my unit was doing. One of the events was a 225lb deadline for as many reps as possible. I was able to do 33 reps, which was the most out of all other people in the assessment. My question is how much do you think my 1 RM would be?...

Why isn't the RTS program more popular?

Mike T has coached more Champions in his short career then most coaches have in the last 10 years. The Results speak for them selves, Plus he is the only American to get gold in the Worlds in a long long time. I believe that the next top 2 Powerlifters use his system as well.

How fatigued do you get from training at a somewhat optimal level of intensity for progress? Is it individual?
