What is the best way to determine ALL your maxes as suggested before the start of the cycle? I've been lifting for years but am new to this program. It seems to me that this would take weeks. If I went into the gym to say, find my max on squat and I start out trying to determine it for 15's, what if I underestimate my first attempt, wouldn't the second attempt with more weight then diminish the performance of my leg muscles thereby negating the term "max"? Then to have to go on to my maxes for 10's 5's would further diminish the performance of my legs. Then to go on to other body parts.. it just seems so time consuming and also improper and the explainations on here don't seem to suggest that.
