Converting singles to multiple reps and vice versa

4.104 Here is a method for converting one-rep maximum lifts (singles) to repetition lifts, and vice versa. For example, without actually having to do singles you can compare your current lifting for reps with the one-rep-maximum totals given in the classification table provided earlier in this chapter. You can also compare your current lifting with that in an earlier cycle that had you focusing on a different rep number. For example, maybe you are in a cycle of 10-rep squats and want to compare yourself with your best one-rep maximum, but do not want to disrupt your cycle in order to spend a period adapting to singles. Or perhaps you are performing low-rep work and want to compare it with the much higher rep work you were using in an earlier cycle, but without spending the time needed to adapt to higher reps.
