    Recommended Max Attempt?

    I started lifting (again since mid-high school ~7 years) about 2 months ago and maxed after my first month.
    I got 225 on the bench, 255 on the squat and 335 on the deadlift.
    Since then I’ve kinda been doing jim wendler’s, my AMRAP have been:
    Bench: (190x8, 200x7, 210x5)
    Squat: (215x4, 230x4, 240x3)
    Deadlift: (280x8, 300x8, 315x6)
    Does anyone have an idea what maxes I should be going for next week? Should I base them off a 1RM calculator?
    Thanks in advance.

    Yea a one rep max calculator will get you in the ballpark of your max. They aren’t always accurate because some people are better at repping out weight vs actually maxing and vice versa, but it should be generally somewhere around the number.

    Yea definitely start off lower than the the calculator says cause if it’s wrong you are gonna exert a lot of energy on a fail.
