How often should you max out? # This is something I find newcomers to training tend to be more keen to do than those who have been training longer...but I totally get that. # It's a cool feeling to test what your capable of and see where your limits are. BUT, strength is not build in that place. # Strength is a skill and needs to be practiced repeatedly and with purpose. That means lots of practice in the build up to testing where your strength levels are at. # You wouldn't just clip into a snowboard and launch down the hardest run of the mountain on your first day snowboarding...and this is exactly the same. # Most of your strength gains are likely going to be made between 60-90% of what you are capable of for a single rep. This is the practice zone and where dreams are made. # Like many questions, I cant give a definitive answer to this. But rather ask another question...why are you doing it in the first place? If it's for a purpose that deems testing necessary like finding out your current 1 rep max to figure out what 60-90% looks like, then even a lower risk test like a 3 or 5 rep max would do fine. If it's for a powerlifting comp, its necessary you get practice with single reps at close to your max, but save the big ones for the big day. And if it's just because it's fun...I guarantee being injured from testing your maxes all the time is a lot less fun than being smart with your training 🙃👍 #maxoutmondays
