What's the definition of 1RM?

Written by

What is a 1 Repetition Maximum?

One Repetition maximum. One rep max. 1RM. They all mean the same. The world record for the bench press is a smidge over 1,000 lbs. That means that with one repetition, some behemoth of a man can press 1,000 lbs. That's right, his 1RM (or 1 rep max) for the bench press is 1,000 lbs. We didn't decide to call ourselves 1RM performance because we are looking for the next World's Strongest Man... we chose 1RM because it is the epitomy of mental and physical strength.

How to be an explosive basketball player

Only 15% of the game of basketball is spent cutting, sprinting, and jumping, which would be considered as high intensity exercise.  So how do you train specifically for basketball?  If you consider the fact that the majority of the game of basketball consists of low to moderate work, you would think that's how you would train.  But, it is those quick actions, the first steps, the change of directions, the quick jump for a rebound, which make the difference between a good basketball player and a great basketball player.

Baseball Strength and Conditioning...The Do's and Dont's

Baseball is not an endurance sport. I have been asked 4 times in the last 12 hours whether baseball players should run cross country to stay in shape for baseball. My answer? Absolutely not. If your goal is to get in shape for baseball, DO NOT RUN CROSS COUNTRY. Baseball is an extremely powerful sport; a 3.2 mile run does not stress the same energy system! Specificity is key! Hopefully by the end of this article, you will learn how to properly train a baseball player to drastically improve sport performance

    Improving The Throwing Athlete Part 1. Generating Lower Body Power. Do You Have What it Takes?

    Is your lower half holding you back when you throw? Do you feel like you’re not maximizing your lower body while throwing? The simplest way to see if your lower body is holding you back is to see if your lower body has enough power and strength to begin with. In other words, does your lower body have sufficient power but you are just not using it? Or, are you just so weak and have such little power coming from your lower half that there is nothing there to help you generate speed and power into the ground and down the mound helping you throw.
