Weight Lifting Percentage Chart

The Weight Lifting Percentage Charts are available in four Max ranges and are great for rapidly calculating the weight to be loaded for weight training and powerlifting sessions at the gym or in your home.

See the example at right and the accompanying instructions.

Pricing for Personal Use

Individuals are welcome to view the Weight Lifting Percentage charts here for free as many times as you wish. You are welcome to print them off for a one time use for free, BUT if you elect to keep the Weight Lifting Percentage Charts in printed form and continue to use them, we ask you to send us a payment of $2.00 (a total of $2 for continuing to use one or more of the charts in printed form).

Our Weightlifting Percentage Charts are in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format. They can easily be carried on a clipboard, or thumb tacked to a wall. You can increase their durability by putting them in a plastic sheet protector, or by having them laminated locally.

The $2.00 fee above is for personal use. Fees for other uses (gyms, schools, personal trainers, weight training classes, etc.) are given below.

Note- these Weight Lifting Percentage do NOT supply a workout. They are used in conjunction with percentage based workouts like those supplied by coaches or in magazines where workouts are written as doing so many reps of a lift at a given percent of your max. These charts help you rapidly determine how much to load on the bar for those workouts. They can also be used to project your max from performing reps to failure at a lighter weight.

Your $2 payment allows you the rights to print off as many copies of any or all of these 8.5 inch X 11 inch Weight Lifting Percentage Charts and the instructions as you may need for your own personal workouts. You are also welcome to print off additional copies for your personal use in the future for as long as the posters are available from this URL. It does NOT give you the right to make copies of them (like from a copying machine). Similarly, it does NOT give you the right to print them off for your friends (unless you send in $2 for each friend after you print them off).

Thank you for you honesty.
