What is the goal of this set/rep scheme? It seems like a direct way to break into a new 1RM, but totally ignores muscle endurance?

Is it incrementing weights?

Sounds more like a CNS warmup to test Max effort...nothing to do with endurance.

I'm assuming each rep is your best effort. I've seen it on the Crossfit WOD many times.

It's just a confusing way to write 10 x 1. Since it's obviously impossible to perform 1 RM 10 times, the weights have to be progressively increasing to a 1RM attempt (or near it), or a % of 1RM has to be selected to perform across the sets. I've not seen clarification on which it is, but the consensus seems to be it's a gradual increase.

I do it as a % of my 1RM repeated for whatever number of times is specified, kind of like on the CA WODs with things like "Back Squat - 85% x 3 x 5".

If I'm going to really try to max, I'll use a lot less sets than 10 to get there, but that's just me.
