Let's say you can do a heavy lift once, and that's your maximum strength. Then let's say you decrease that weight by half and do as many repetitions as you can until your muscles don't move anymore. This is also your maximum strength....
Beause if the one rep max gets bigger, then also the half of that one rep max increases.
Half 100 is smaller than half of 101. And if you can do more repetitions with one weight it means it's getting easier... And if lifting a weight is easier than before then you got stronger. My queation is, how is it even possible to find a situation where strength and endurance are not directly correlated?
One might say cardio, but the heart is a muscle too.
Are there any papers proving that one can increase their 1 rep maximum without also increasing their endurance in lower weights?
Say my bicep curl is 60 pounds for once but 30 pounds for twenty reps.... If suddently I become able to do twenty-two reps with 30 pounds, how is it possible that my one rep max didn't alsp increase? And vice versa.
