Hey All,

I understand that those 1RM formulas/calculators are very limited in applicability - and I said as much in my posts and even tried to re-iterate that fact with my 2nd post. They fail horribly when you approach 20 reps in particular and there are (large) variations between individuals. I was just doing what we physicists call, "a back of the envelope calculation" --- namely, a quick and short estimate of something that would fit on the back of an envelope. I do think that, however, it illustrates an intuitive point: the lower in bodyfat that you already are, the less effect losing more will have!
