If I may butt in here...is there any reason to test your 1rm? Hitting that 1RM is going to take more than it gives, and you aren't that far out from the TSC where you will really test. I suppose you have a good idea that the program is working. And you don't need to know your new 1rm to set percentages for the upcoming weeks or anything like that. So it seems maxing here would only be for your own personal knowledge. (There may be some reason for testing your 1rm in order to be able to set your opening weight at the TSC. I can't see the point but I'm not versed in competing.) Not trying to tell you what to do. I'm following the same program, so I'm following your progress keenly.
