Hi all
So how do you figure out % with weighted bodyweight? for example 1rm for me is bodyweight +28kg (113kg)
would 85% be (113kg x 85%)=96kg OR is it better to go from the added weight? 28kg x 85%=24kg
lastly is using % of 1rm for bodyweight a flawed though and I should instead figure out my rep max at a given load?
Thanks All

Your 1 RM= 113kg(85 +28)
85% of 113 kg=96kg

96kg-85kg(your bodyweight)=11kg

11kg is your 85% weight
