Programs for different clients using 1RM testing

by FitChick
(Roseburg, Or ,USA)

Can someone please tell me where I could find more info on prescribing a fitness plan using data obtained for a client using 1RM test? I can find a lot of data on how to do the test but nothing on what to to with the results to design a client program. I am just getting started with my business and am Cert with AFAA and ACSM. A website, person or book that i could get to help me with this would be appreciated.

1RM
by: Keith S

The 1RM should not be used in health clubs for determining anything. 1RM's were intended for use in controlled scientific studies. For health clubs a 10 RM is safe and effective and just as useful for determining improvement.

Check out Wayne Wescott books. Strength Fitness was excellent for explaining the use of a 10RM over a 1RM. You can also get feedback from www.nihspro.com. They have a great research page and an email for questions such as these.

Have client work out with 60-80% 1RPM
by: David Archer

This formula is older than dinosaurs. high school football coaches used this around the country. Take the 1rpm and multiply by 0.60 for the low end and 0.80 for the high end.SO, lets say a client can bench 200 one time. 200 x 0.60=120. So their work out weight would be 120. Max out at the beginning of the week, and do the heaviest work outs the first part of the week.
