Just like the title says how often do you attempt your person record or 1 rep max on any certain exercise. Only reason I ask is I 've just started lifting again after about half a year off and I have not once tried to test my max at any exercise. The main reason why I haven't is because I work out in my basement and only have 315 pounds plus the bar in free weights and can both squat and dead lift 315 relatively easy. I don't have a spotter so BP is out of the question. I would just like to get a certain idea on how often I should go to the gym and try them out.
