1 Repetition Maximum

Training intensity guidelines for strength training are mostly expressed in a percentage of the 1 Repetition Maximum. Often abbreviated to 1RM, the 1 repetition maximum is the highest amount of weight or resistance with which someone can make one repetition with proper form in a particular exercise. When you know 1RM for a certain exercise, it is possible to estimate the necessary amount of weight to reach a prescribed number of repetitions or intensity.
