Estimated Weights


This tool will tell you the recommended weights to be used for each of the THT rep ranges.
Also, if you've been deadlifting in higher rep ranges, it will also recommend a weight for working in the 4-6 rep range.

How To Use

  1. Go to the last workout in your logs (week 10 of your last THT cycle)
  2. Input the weight lifted (in pounds or kg) and the amount of reps completed
  3. Go to the bottom and select the rep range you now want to work in e.g. 7-10
  4. Once checked, the calculator will recommend a weight range for the new rep range
  5. Interestingly, you will also get a good estimate of your 1 rep max in each exercise
  6. You will repeat the above process for each and every set and exercise


You bench pressed 100kg for 10 reps on the first set of your last chest workout (you were working in the 7-10 rep range)
You now want to train in the 6-8 rep range
Input 10 reps and 100kg at the top
Now check the 6-8 box at the bottom
The calculator now recommends you work with between 104kg and 110kg on the first set of the new cycle in order to reach failure between 6 and 8 reps.
Practically speaking, this would mean using either 105kg or 110kg for most people. It's your choice.
You can also see that your 1 rep max would be up around 133kg.
