    Default Can some please explain what the "1 RM" means in "...40% of 1RM"?

    I don't see the 'RM' term defined in the FAQs. Thanks!

    "RM" means "rep maximum." A 1RM is the largest amount of weight that you can lift for one rep. A 5RM is the most weight you can lift five times, etc.

    40% of what you can lift 1 x is.
    Example if your max for a lift is 1 x 100 pounds then 40 pounds would be your 40% of your 1RM.
