    Hi professor, is is possible that I can find my rep maxes while in HST session?

    I'm asking this because I designed my HST routine after my first SD, so there are many weight of exercises that I'm not remember.

    Not really as you should have tested your rep maxes before you took SD, I assume that you have only just started HST as you started another thread recently - http://thinkmuscle.com/community/threads/newbie-seeking-help.42654/#post-250803

    The only solution I can see is to look back at your previous best loads for around 5 reps for each exercise then use an online rep max calculator (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/other7.htm or http://www.allthingsgym.com/rep-max-calculator/) to obtain a projected 1rm then you will have to assume that your 15 rep max is approximately 65% of your projected 1rm, 10 rep max is approximately 75% of your projected 1rm and your 5 rep max is approximately 85% of your projected 1rm and then work back from those figures.
