You don’t have to test your one rep max every other month in order have an idea of what you can lift. In fact, I would not recommend maxing out on the same lifts more than a few times a year. The reason being is that anytime you are truly testing your max, there is […]
Although it seems as if the majority of people are trying to lose weight, what about the percentage of the population looking to add some t-shirt-busting size?
