I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment One rep max formula - why do I get tired during warm-up
@AndrásHummer The threshold for adding another warm-up is when my work sets are far enough away from the last easily-loaded-with-large-weight-plates configuration. That basically means that I reserve <10kg plates for work sets, and add a warm-up set when I'm at least 10kg away from next-least amount that can be put on the bar with only >=10kg plates.

comment One rep max formula - why do I get tired during warm-up
@AndrásHummer 5-5-5-2 is based off of Rippetoe & Kilgore's recommendation in Starting Strength. (They actually recommend for most exercises something like 2 sets of 5 with the bar, then a few sets of 5 with increasing weight, then a set of 3 closer to the work-set weight, then a set of 2 very close (~20-50 pounds) to the work-set weight, then sets of 5.) You'll find that empirical or optimized numbers are few and far between and go by different standards in the lifting world.

This overview of set/rep schemes might be a better basis for workout goals. Also, this answer might help you understand the role of warm-up sets and how to plan them. :) Cheers

comment One rep max formula - why do I get tired during warm-up
@AndrásHummer Coming at it from a math/engineering perspective, it works when working towards a 1RM because the # reps in a 1RM is known, whereas in the reverse, both reps and weight are unknown, and so you get some wacky combinations like .00000001kg x 10 billion reps.

comment Working out consecutive days with longer resting periods
Accumulating tremendous volume before a long break isn't a terrible idea. Five days in a row is a little over the top though.

comment Deadlift and Rack Lifts
Do I recall that you're working with a bar that is low to the ground? If not, and you're pulling from regulation height, maybe deficit pulls (from lower than prescribed) might be useful. Haven't tried it myself.

comment What is the cheapest way to build power lifting fitness room for one person?
@ConcealmEnt Yeah it was a real barbell. Craigslist is just used stuff. It's region-specific and time-sensitive so there's no way to link to it. You've just got to look for used gear.
