1 rep max

Trying to calculate what my 1 rep max would be as I deadlift 200kg 3x10. The 1rm calculator I used estimated after 1 set of 10 that it’s about 266kg. I weight 86kg and I am sure I could do more than 266kg as Iv pulled 260kg @82kg body weight previously. Does anyone know a good way to calculate 1rm...

Weird problem I'm facing on every exercise

So on bench press for example my 1RM is about 365lbs, but when I try and do reps with a lighter weight, lets say around 290lbs, I can only get about 2-3 reps on something I should be able to do for ATLEAST 7, any idea as to why this may be happening?
