Specialty:

Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

Invergo et al used the number of repetitions using an 80 pound barbell to predict a young adult's one repetition maximum (1-RM) bench pressing weight. This is a relatively simple and safe method of estimating a person's maximum strength based on submaximal endurance. The authors are from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
