You need to have Acrobat installed on your computer. Here is a link to a free download.

Default Thank you!!

Thanks so much for posting this! This is exactly what I've been waiting for! And thank you and your whole crew for all the hard work you've been doing, especially during the holiday season.

The caveman joke is pretty funny. Have a fabulous new year!

Why are some exercises more important than others to have a 1RM for?

And what a fabulous job! Thanks so much for this!

I would assume that you could more easily estimate the weight to use for some of the exercise variations based on the 1RM of a basic exercise that is similar.

THANK YOU!!!!

The pictures make it SOOOO much more easier to know what exercise is specified! I had no idea before!

And so you don't do any 1RMs for Push Ups or band work, is that correct? Just the weight ones listed?

You're correct. You don't do a 1RM test for anything with a band or exercises that use bodyweight , like a push up for example.
