What is proper warmup sets leading up to one rep max?

I've been curious what's the most optimal sets and reps ramping up to a one rep max. If I'm looking to try for a 500lbs squat, what's best?

How much does body weight plays a role in the amount of weight you can lift?

lets say eddie hall weighed in well above 400 pounds when he did the 500kg (1102 pounds) deadlift. and that was a one rep max. my question is, is it humanly possible for a 130 pound guy to squat 500 pounds for 5 sets of 12 with a max 2 minutes rest in between sets?

Body Composition & Resting Metabolic Rate

Was able to do a Bod Pod and resting metabolic rate test last Friday and learned a few things! 1. Body Composition There are a lot of ways you can estimate body fat. The true gold standard remains water immersion, with Bod Pod and DEXA being effective alternatives (for a link to 5 of the most...

Looking for advice, so close to my goal.

For around five years now I've been pushing for my personal goal of benching the 150 dumbbells off the chest (flat bench). Recently I've hit the 145s and I can taste the 150s, and not just by licking them when no ones looking. For about 2 months now I've been dealing with on and off shoulder...

Need guidance on 3s program for Deadlifts

I think my Five3One app is trying to injure me or just outright kill me in DL. A couple months back I switched from 5/3/1 to 3s to ramp up my numbers - at least that’s my logic. The app has ramped the numbers up in such high increments that after warm up, I don’t even bother doing 3 rep sets...

Herniated disk, don't know what to do

Back in July 2019, I suffered a lower back injury that turned out to be herniated disk between my L5 and S1 vertebrae. I've gone through physical therapy and done a lot of training on my core to ease the pain and give my spine more relief. Even had a cortisone shot that helped for about 3 months....

150's Bench Press Record

K so i have this friend that works at the Y that I go to and he said he's going to try to break the 150 lb bench press record for NATURAL competition. I'm kinda sceptical about this though because he said the record he's trying to break at that weight class is only 305 in the US and 315 in the...
