Default At what % do you miss regularly?

At what % of your max should you generally be missing regularly - like maybe 25-50% of the time?Im sure it varies but I'm curious if there is a certain percentage where you arent quite sure if you will complete the lift.

There is no way to estimate that. There may be a month where you can't hit 90% and there may be a month where you PR 3 times on a lift.

A lot of variables go into how your feeling day by day. Stress, sleep, nutrition, mobility issues, your girlfriend broke up with you, etc. There is no way to tell how well your going to do.

The thing you want to make sure and NOT do is get a number in your head that you think your going to start missing. Every time you walk up to the bar you should be thinking you're going to make it. If you don't, then odds are you're probably going to miss it.

For me it's almost always about sleep. I've only been doing this for a few weeks consistently so that might change as time goes on but if I get a good nights rest I can push 90% of my 1RM with very little problems. If I sleep horribly I struggle mightily with 70% if or less.

I agree, sleep is very underestimated on its effect to training.

Totally different among lifters, and will change for a given lifter depending on how he/she is training.
