Specifically, on visit 2, subjects ingested either L-arginine [alpha]-ketoglutarate or placebo, and then one repetition maximum
and total load volume were obtained by using the chest press.

One repetition maximum
(in kg) was estimated by the software (Musclelab, Ergotest, Norway) from the force--velocity relationship according to an algorithm that is not provided by the manufacturer.
In the present study, 31 healthy, elderly men [age, 74 +/- 1 yr (mean +/SEM)] were assigned to either RT [3 sessions/wk, 3-5 sets of 8-12 repetition maximum
(RM)/session] + placebo (n = 8), RT + GH (n = 8), GH (n = 8), or placebo (n = 7) in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded (RT + placebo and RT + GH) or single-blinded (GH or placebo) design.

2002) Muscular adaptations in response to three different resistance-training regimens: specificity of repetition maximum
The one repetition maximum
(1RM) for the squat, bench press and power clean exercises were determined as measures of dynamic strength.
It is also recommended that the best intensity of the training for this age group is 50-60% of one repetition maximum
All subjects were tested for unilateral one repetition maximum
(1-RM) dynamic constant external resistance (DCER) strength of the dominant (based on throwing preference) forearm flexors while seated in a chair.
Subjects first performed at a load equivalent of 8 times their one repetition maximum
(8RM), followed at mid-week with loads at 6RM, and then finishing their training week at the heaviest load, 4RM.
