Postby zcmelt91 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 8:39 pm

How often should you be testing your 1RM or 5RM?

1RM very rarely

Especially in Strongman it's best to "test" that at shows that actually have it

So kind of a question to that answer, would you say hitting a 1RM once or twice a month is what should be done?

Way too often IMO no more than every 12 weeks is how I do it.
