Weight Training Calculations

I have written a couple of scripts that perform various weight training calculations.

  • There is a home page for the Weight Training Calculations.
  • There is a script to Calculate 1-Rep Maximums from a weight lifted in the 2 to 15 rep range.
  • There is a script to Calculate Your Wilks Score. The Wilks score is used in powerlifting to allow people of different bodyweights and/or ages to compete against one another fairly. This script also calculates allometric and SIFF relative strength scores.

Ages ago I wrote a post describing How To Calculate Your Wilks Score if you want to know about the equation behind the calculation.
