Can some one give me more insight into a heavy single? Yes... I know it means work out to a heavy weight you can lift one time, but was wondering if we were looking for anything else in it and I wanted to know what a heavy single is compared to your 1RM? Also, when it says to do a percentage after a heavy single, is it the percentage of the single or your 1RM?

For the heavy single you will work up to your best for the day, so it may be 90-95% of your best or less if you are not feeling great or you may set a new PR. For the back off sets on the heavy single you will calculate it off of the heavy single for the day not your 1RM.

As always, thanks Steve

On another note, what has any one heard about the new red adidas WL shoes. Just wanted some personal reviews, I have used pendlays in the past and really liked those??? comparison?

Rick -

People seem to really like them. I haven't used them personally. Compared to the Pendlays, they'll be lighter and a bit more stable.
