1RM (Rep Max): The maximum weight that can be lifted or pushed in a single time. The larger 1RM number, the more serious it is in practice and the effectiveness of that.
Overtraining: Overtraining. The concept of Overtraining usually occurs when the excess weight or the intensity of the exercise is too much for the body to recover. If you continue to exercise in the same manner as above, it will cause the muscles to not develop, even causing injuries while exercising.
