Improve Your Max
Before you try a maximal lift, load the bar with a weight that's 20 to 30
percent heavier than what you think you can handle. Then simply lift it
off the rack, hold for 1 to 2 seconds, and put it back. Wait 3 to 4 minutes,
then try your true max—the weight will feel noticeably lighter. Never attempt
this without a spotter.
