Question about XTrain 1RM testing

I posted this in one of the support forums, but not sure of the right place to ask this question. When doing 1 RM tests for the exercises where you alternate arms, like the alternating standing curls, should my count be the count for one arm or both? I'm also trying to do my 1 RM testing for XTrain but don't see any exercise numbers above 1059 in the calculator? There are some new ones there and I would really like to see the video examples!Thanks!

I counted a L rep and a R rep as 'one rep', so each arm did ten reps.

Also, there are a lot of 1RM max calcuators online. They seem to be in line with the one on Cathe's website.

I also noticed a lot of the '10--' exercises were not on the website yet.

Thanks eminenz2! That was how I was counting it too, but I played the video clip for one of them and Cathe was counting 1-2-3-4 instead of 1-1-2-2, etc. I guess I will find out quickly if I am a long way off. For the exercises that aren't in the calculator yet, I am looking them up on the videos, but will want them on my workout card. I did hear that the workout cards are supposed to be available next week, so hopefully all of the exercises will be in workout manager then.
