What is 1RM (one rep max) in Kettlebell Training

Your 1RM indicates what your 1 repetition maximum is for any given exercise. The exercise requires all your effort and with that same weight you can’t perform another repetition.

You can and should set your 1RM for all the exercises that you’re including in your strength training. Exercises like the kettlebell strict press, bent-over row, front squat, chest press, biceps curl, triceps extension, and so on. Prometheus Phase II is an excellent split program to follow.

You might never have tested your 1RM for a given exercise, or you might not have heavier weight available but you have been able to perform 6 reps max with your heaviest weight, this information will allow you to calculate your 1RM with our online calculator.
